Rogers Wireless Changes Mind on iPhone in Canada

Rogers Wireless Uncertain

After announcing in January that it had iPhone plans in Canada, Rogers Wireless told CBS News today, “We haven’t announced whether we will carry the iPhone… Everything in the media has been speculations to this point.”

Rogers Wireless said in a January e-mail to its customers that it was working closely with Apple to launch the iPhone in Canada “as soon as possible.”

“Costs and considerations for adding a new phone to its lineup, including business and technical factors, may have offered compelling reasons for [Rogers Wireless] not to carry the device,” Ronald Gruia, an analyst with market research firm Frost & Sullivan in Toronto, told Apple Insider.

iPhone service up for grabs in Canada. Any takers?

EDIT: Ok, now Rogers is saying it WILL be Canada’s iPhone provider. Here’s the link. You decide.
