Rogers Communications, the largest wireless carrier in Canada, will soon be carrying the iPhone. Atypically, however, the announcement comes directly from Ted Rogers, President and CEO of Rogers Communications, with no co-announcement from Apple and scant detail. Rogers' statement reads only:
"We're thrilled to announce that we have a deal with Apple to bring the iPhone to Canada later this year. We can't tell you any more about it right now, but stay tuned."
Speculation holds that the lack of detail -- no specific release date, etc. -- indicates the pending introduction of a 3G-capable iPhone. Rogers rolled out its 3G (HSPA) network in late 2007, for areas of Canada including Greater Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Calgary, Edmonton, FWinnipeg, Saskatoon, Ottawa/Gatineau, Greater Montreal, Quebec City and others.
