Rogers Wireless of Canada and O2 of the UK have just confirmed that the iPhone 3GS will be launching in both countries on June 19, the same date that the 3GS will hit stores here. This is great news for Canadians and Brits alike, who usually have to wait way longer than is fair to get new U.S. made smartphones.

In Canada, Rogers Wireless has stated that pricing will remain roughly equivalent to U.S. prices. The 16GB 3GS will run $199 CAD, while the 32GB version will cost $299 CAD. Both of those prices are with 3 year voice and data plans. The 8 GB 3G will sell for $99 CAD, also with a 3 year voice and data plan.
Carrier O2 will be responsible for the release of the iPhone 3GS all over the U.K. With an 18 month contract, you can get a 16GB 3GS for between 87 and 175 pounds (depending on tariff). The 32 GB model will cost between 175 and 275 pounds. If you choose to get a 24 month plan instead, the 16 GB 3GS will be free (except for tariff costs), and the 32 GB version will cost between 97 and 175 pounds.
O2 also announced their tethering plan prices. If you want 3GB/month you're looking at 15 pounds a month. You can also get 10GB/month for 30.
