Telstra, Optus, Vodafone for Oz iPhone

When it comes to choosing a network, it looks like Australian iPhone users will be given the world’s best choice (Czech that!) – the device will be offered by three carriers in the country.

We knew Optus and Vodafone planned to offer the gadget, but news from down under now reports Telstra too is getting in on the iAction

Telstra chief Sol Trujillo may make an announcement to this effect next week, according to local reports. That’s significant, because Telstra is Australia’s largest mobile network. But while the two smaller operators will begin selling the device on July 11, Telstra is allegedly looking to commence sales on 22 July.

Vodafone’s pre-registration website for the iPhone has attracted about 40,000 visitors daily since opening the site early last week, while Optus has stopped accepting advance deposits, as it can’t keep up with demand.

Only Hutchison at present is left in the cold, as the only carrier in Australia without an iPhone.
