UK iPhone Announcement Expected

Apple has began sending out invitations to members of the UK press on Thursday, as it planned to hold an event at its flagship store in London on Regents Street next week. In typical Apple fashion, few details were given in the invitation other than the tagline "Mum's no longer the word." Speculation is rampant, with most analysts expecting the Cupertino company to announce its UK carrier for the iPhone.

It is expected that O2 will be the carrier of the much-hyped device, although representatives for the company would not comment to the press on any plans. There is the slight possibly that the announcement may have nothing to do with the iPhone at all and is rather about an iTunes announcement such as the adding of the Beatles catalog. However, such announcements will likely happen in a venue other than an Apple store.
