Apple's iPhone is expected to cross the Canadian border later this year, the country's largest wireless provider said Tuesday.

Rogers Communications, which is also Canada's only GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) provider, will serve as the region's iPhone carrier.

"We're thrilled to announce that we have a deal with Apple to bring the iPhone to Canada later this year. We can't tell you any more about it right now, but stay tuned," Chief executive Ted Rogers said in a statement.

The announcement comes 10 months after the Canadian company let it slip out of the bag that it would be the exclusive iPhone provider in Canada. Rogers Communications then had retract its press release, noting it had no definitive arrangement to carry the iPhone.

Apple changed their home page today with a photo of an iPhone and MacBook Air with the title "Calling all developers", reminding visitors that early registration for the World Wide Developer's Conference ends on April 25th, 2008.

Meanwhile, Apple also quietly released the 4th beta of the iPhone SDK. Beta 4 adds at least one much requested feature: OpenGL ES support within the iPhone simulator. Previously, developers had to install directly to their iPhone to run OpenGL applications.

"The fourth beta version of the iPhone SDK includes Xcode IDE, iPhone simulator with Open GL ES support, Interface Builder, Instruments, frameworks and samples, compilers, and Shark analysis tool."

Developers are continuing to work on iPhone/Touch apps and games to ready for the June launch of the iTunes App Store.
