In a Leader Post article discussing the roll out of the company’s new 3G network, SaskTel CEO Robert Watson said the company will begin offering the iPhone on July 1, the day the new 3G network launches. “We’re building the 3G network right now,” Watson said.. “It will be up and running for July 1st (with) completion by the end of this year. The good news is that (Apple) is coming out with a new version of the iPhone in the June time-frame and they’re going to put us on that. So we’re quite excited about that.” SaskTel, based in Saskatchewan, will become the fourth Canadian carrier to offer the device, behind Rogers/Fido, Bell, and Telus.

Update: SaskTel has issued a statement clarifying Watson’s remarks. “The comments made by the SaskTel President and CEO in a news article on April 15, 2010 were not a confirmation of a release of a new version of the iPhone. The President was commenting on information that has been reported publicly and on the Internet for several months, which has speculated on the timing of a new release.”
