Thai mobile operator still seeking to offer 3G iPhone
Advanced Info Service (AIS) , Thailand's largest mobile phone operator, is still exploring ways to offer Apple Inc's 3G iPhone in the Thai market, even though initial talks ended without agreement, an executive was quoted as telling Reuters.

"We have not stopped talking. We are still exploring several options to sell iPhone to serve demand," Chief Marketing Officer Sanchai Tiewprasertkul told reporters on Tuesday.

The move would help AIS retain customers and meet demand for the 3G iPhone, which offers faster Internet access and improved e-mail features, Sanchai said. Last month, AIS said it had failed to reach agreement with Apple to offer the new phone but was willing to renegotiate.

AIS's smaller rival, True Move Plc, a unit of True Corp launched the 3G iPhone in Thailand last month, making it the first operator to sell the phone in the fast-growing market. AIS, partly owned by Singapore Telecommunications Ltd , has about 50 percent of the Thai mobile phone market.
