iPhone 4 unavailable in SG and HK online Apple Store
If you want to buy an iPhone 4 from Apple in Singapore or Hong Kong, you're out of luck. The iPhone 4 is currently not available for sale in the Singapore and Hong Kong online Apple Store.
If you go to either the Singapore or Hong Kong site, you will see that below "Estimated ship", it says "Currently unavailable." The option to select it is also absent. However, in both stores, you can still buy the 3GS straight from Apple. In contrast to Singapore and Hong Kong, the iPhone 4 is still available in the US online Apple Store.
We have heard from a reliable source that this is temporary. If you are interested in buying an iPhone 4 from Apple directly, keep checking your respective online store; it should be available again. Our source was unable to say when stocks would become available again though. If you are in a hurry, the iPhone is available from carriers in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Carriers in both Hong Kong and Singapore are selling the iPhone 4, but buying them will involve signing up for a dataplan. If you do not wish to be handcuffed to your carrier, you'll have to wait for Apple to start stocking them again.
