The Star (Canada) reports that Rogers has announced that it will begin selling the iPhone North of the border later year.
"We're thrilled to announce that we have a deal with Apple to bring the iPhone to Canada later this year," said Ted Rogers, CEO. "We can't tell you any more about it right now, but stay tuned."
Rogers has been widely expected to be Apple's wireless partner in Canada because it's the only carrier in that country with an EDGE network, which the current-gen iPhone uses.
A trademark dispute between Apple and Comwave over the iPhone trademark was believed to be the reason why the handset had yet to go on sale in Canada. The Star's write up mentions the dispute, but does not offer any news vis-a-vis a settlement.
