The nation's number two telco Optus has finally, more than two weeks after its rivals, confirmed that it will launch Apple's flagship iPhone 4 handset when the device hits Australia in July.

"Optus will launch iPhone 4, the thinnest smartphone in the world with the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, in Australia in the coming weeks," the telco said in a statement, noting customers could register their interest on a special page on its website it has set up for the purpose.

The wording of Optus' statement was the same as similar statements issued by Telstra and Vodafone Hutchison Australia on the day that Apple revealed the iPhone 4.

The only statement the company has issued on the matter came from Optus consumer marketing director Austin R. Bryan, who said the telco looked forward to providing "lots of information" to new and existing Optus customers on the iPhone 4 announcement "in the near future".
