Rogers Communications Inc., Canada’s largest wireless carrier, plans more smartphones based on Google Inc.’s Android operating system to broaden its range of devices after losing its Canadian monopoly on Apple Inc.’s iPhone.

“Stay tuned,” Rob Bruce, president of Rogers’ communications business, said today in an interview at the Canadian Telecom Summit in Toronto. “There’s lots of Android product coming” from handset makers including Motorola Inc. and HTC Corp. he said, declining to give a time frame.
