Rogers confirms Canadian iPhone; 2007 launch?

updated 12:05 pm EST, Thu January 25, 2007

iPhone Rogers Exclusive

Rogers Wireless continued the flurry of iPhone news on Thursday by stating that it will be the sole provider for the iPhone in Canada, according to an e-mail message sent by the company to some of its customers. Confirming early investigations, Rogers said that it alone would offer the iPhone in the country and that it was actively working with Apple to speed the launch.

Wording in the e-mail may also point to a release sooner than expected. Although Canada traditionally lags behind the US by several months for high-profile phone releases, which would all but ensure a delay to 2008, Rogers said in the e-mail that the iPhone will first be introduced in North America, raising the possibility that the handset may ship to Canada in advance of an expected October European launch. Rogers is closely associated with AT&T, which will be the only provider to offer the iPhone in the US.
