And here we go... Vodafone Australia is not exclusive:
"SingTel, Bharti Airtel, Globe and Optus today announced that they have signed an agreement with Apple to bring the iPhone to Singapore, India, the Philippines and Australia later this year.
More information will be released at a later date."

TheBartender: I think its fair to say, judging from all the speculation, and the obvious signs, that the iPhone will be 3G and not exclusive to any carrier...but until this is confirmed, we wait in anticipation...
Here is a link to 'confirmation' of the iPhone being 3G - in Italy
mckenndk: I might consider buying one when I am back in the country.
My sister can't wait buying one if it is 3g and they have a good data package with it.
I am not paying $29.95 a month for only 200mb.
Are they planning on having a better camera in the new model, I would not like the idear going from a 6MP in my N95 to a 1.3MP?
lugh: I just realised this means that the iTunes Music Store for NZ will need updating to include the iPhone-specific content (ringtones, etc.). Hopefully, this will be done in time for the NZ launch rather than us having to wait for a year or two.
