Apple’s iPhone 5 is unavailable for pre-order in Hong Kong and Singapore

Apple’s iPhone 5 is unavailable for pre-order in Hong Kong and Singapore - When Apple’s iPhone 5 goes on sale next Friday, it will launch in a record three Asian countries: Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong. However, Apple’s would-be customers in Asia were left confused today when pre-orders began, as they appeared to be unavailable directly from Apple in some countries.

The press release announcing the new handset suggested that all 9 countries that are participating in the initial launch would also offer pre-orders on the 14th:

iPhone 5 will be available from the Apple Online Store (, Apple’s retail stores, and through AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and select Apple Authorized Resellers. iPhone 5 will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK on Friday, September 21, and customers can pre-order their iPhone 5 beginning Friday, September 14.

In Singapore, Apple’s official online store listed the device as “Currently unavailable” and “Pending for agency approval” and would not allow orders to be completed, though it did show pricing for the gadget. We are hearing reports that local carrier Singtel did allow pre-orders, but its website currently only allows customers to fill out a “registration of interest” for the new iPhone.
