AWS 3G iPhone 4 coming to Videotron... and T-Mobile USA?

Videotron launched their mobile unit today and along with Nexus One and BlackBerry Bold 9700 they said Apple would announce an AWS 3G (the higher spectrum 3G used by upstarts Wind, Moblicity, and Videotron in Canada, and T-Mobile in the US) "in the coming months".

My usual thinking is that carriers have little if any forward knowledge of Apple's plans, so take this with a Quebec-sized grain of salt.

If Apple wants to have a truly universal GSM/HSPA 3G phone, however, they'll need to enable or add those AWS frequencies at some point.
