Here is the official word from SingTel on what to expect from the launch of iPhone 4 tonight and over the weekends:
SingTel has chosen a new and bigger venue to launch the new iPhone 4 this year at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre. We are selling the phones at a centralised location so that all customers with appointments can buy their phones from one place conveniently. The larger venue also allows customers to be entertained by interactive demo zones where they can access and learn about SingTel’s latest mobile apps ranging from navigation to shopping apps. Customers can also enjoy food and beverages, plus song and dance performances.
To provide customers with a convenient and great iPhone 4 shopping experience, SingTel is using an appointment system. Customers chose from 13 time slots spread over 2 days (30 and 31 July) to purchase their iPhone 4. This provides an overall faster transaction time in a conducive shopping environment, better crowd control and also minimizes queuing time. The timeslots start from 12am – 9pm (30 July) and 11am – 9pm (31 July).
Customers will only be served based on their pre-appointed timeslots and are advised to arrive within that window period to avoid extended queuing time. As stocks are very limited, we regret that we are unable to accept any walk-in customers.
Customers can visit the SingTel iPhone 4 bulletin board http://www.singtel.com/iphone4 for more updates.
We thank our customers for their support and understanding.
See you all there at Marina Bay Sands tonight!
