With the new HSPA launch happening in November. More cellphone companies take a look at different carriers. We heard earlier about the BlackBerry 9700 and 8530 showing up on Bell’s system but an iPhone? Complete shock to me. The Globe And Mail reports that the iPhone will be available for Bell and TELUS carriers for their upcoming HSPA network set to release in November before the holidays.
Bell Canada and Telus Corp. will begin selling the iPhone next month, breaking the stranglehold on the device that their rival Rogers Communications Inc. has held for more than a year.
Both carriers hope the addition of Apple Inc.’s groundbreaking smart phone to their lineups will help them sign up higher-value customers and shift the balance of power in Canada’s mobile market.
Neither Bell nor Telus would confirm that they would add the iPhone to their lineups. Apple also declined to comment. But people familiar with the matter said the two carriers will announce a working partnership with Apple as early as Tuesday or Wednesday and begin selling the device in time for the launch of their new network next month
