Australian IT are reporting that Telstra and Apple have finally come to an arrangement, allowing Telstra to offer to also carry the iPhone 3G in Australia. While an exact date is still being sought, they’ve indicated July 22nd is the date they’re aiming for.

Telstra has missed a massive opportunity by missing the July 11th launch date, Optus and Vodafone will both attract the early adopters and capitalise on the hype surrounding the Australian launch.

Many were surprised at Telstra’s silence surrounding the new device, being the largest network provider in Australia it’s a natural fit for Apple’s strategy to move large numbers.

Apple still aren’t listing Telstra on their ‘where to buy’ page.
