International iPhone Seen

Administrators keeping track of web traffic today have detected a new, officially-sanctioned version of the iPhone browsing websites, according to reports. Found in the user IDs of visitors that represents their browser and operating system, a new device reports itself as "Apple iPhone International - Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone-International; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en-n)." This varies sharply from the normal ID which simply describes the handset as an iPhone and points to a separate, more universal version which may feature subtler hardware or software changes.

No hint was given as to the country of origin, but the updated iPhone is likely intended for Canada and Europe, where the AT&T exclusive contract does not require that Apple limit the phone to activation through the American cellular provider. Multiple European countries currently require that phones be unlockable should customers want to switch carriers or opt out of an existing contract. [via BGR]
