O2 boss spills the beans on 3G iPhone launch date

We all know it’s coming. And we did ever since the original launch date back in 2007. But the question, as always, is when? I’m talking about the iPhone, which if you haven’t noticed, has been very hot in the news room lately because of rumors that a next-generation version might be released this year with a few added features such as 3G connectivity.

It’s coming to the Philippines, Singapore, India, Australia, Italy, and just recently, Switzerland. However, that a new version of the iPhone will be rolled out in the aforementioned markets is still only speculation, and we don’t have concrete evidence to confirm the real score. That’s what Matthew Key, chairman and chief executive of Telefónica Europe is trying to be helpful about, by issuing a few short statements in reply to some burning questions.

3G iPhone

After the announcement of O2’s first-quarter results, Matthew said his company will be making an announcement with Apple in “the coming weeks”. An announcement of a new product could be likely, don’t you think?

Also according to him, when asked when exactly the 3G iPhone will become available:

“That’s more of a question for Apple … but over the coming weeks we will do a joint announcement with Apple as Telefónica Group.”

As Apple’s partner in a “multi-year” deal to market the iPhone in UK and Ireland, O2 is a great position to intro the new version, if it ever arrives any time soon.

We’ll be looking deeper into the matter and report more news on this as it hits.
