  • iPhone, meet Canada.


    Rogers announced Tuesday that they WOULD be releasing the iPhone for users of their network. They did not release any information on the date, other than "later this year".

    Canadian iPhone lovers have been drooling since before the US launch of the iPhone, waiting to get their hands on an official Canadian iPhone. Over 150,000 Canadians visit MMi every month (what's up, Vancouver and Weston!) - well, now you'll be getting official Rogers iPhones.


    Here's the short and sweet quote from Rogers:
    We're thrilled to announce that we have a deal with Apple to bring the iPhone to Canada later this year. We can't tell you any more about it right now, but stay tuned.

      If they're selling them in Canada, its probably going to be crazyyyy expensive with a 3 yr contract with rogers or something....I got my iPhone from the states for only $400 no contract and I'm currently using it canada. It should be interesting because about a month before they come out in Canada ppl will be like, "omg I'm getting an iPhone" and I'll be like..."So what? I've had one since like 9 months ago" lol.

      Yeh that's all well and good that we will have it in Canada but the bad news is the price :P

      Not only will it be like 500 or 600 in a Rogers dealer but also the monthly data rate will be like $100 for 25MB's..

      Everyone and their mom is going to have an iPhone coming next year. It will definitely be a big seller for Christmas. I remember back in September when everyone was ooooing and ahhhing at my iPhone. Now its like meh, they are everywhere.

      I hate to say this but after 9 months of owning an iPhone, I'm bored of it. I find myself now using any of the major applications anymore. Time for a HTC maybe? N95?

      Upgrade what?

      I would think that once the iPhone is out for Rogers, an unlock would not be necessary because there would be a firmware that recognizes Rogers SIM cards.

      HOWEVER...

      We might see two versions of the firmware for the two versions of iPhone, so the v1 phones might still be officially unsupported. This isn't a big deal, IMHO because the unlock process is pretty damn easy now and virtually danger-free.

      The thing I'm excited the most about is the possibility of (relatively) cheaper data plans for wireless surfing. Right now, it's waaaay cost-prohibative to surf via Edge. Once the iPhone comes out, hopefully I can add on a data package that allows unlimited (or at least a GB) surfing.

      Rumors are rumors, and should not be substantiated through hearsay. Rogers has not determined a price for the iPhone as of yet, so whomever's giving you the rumor is blowing smoke out his arse.

      Well seeing it is going to be the 2nd Gen iPhone that is released in Canada meaning a 3g phone you can bet on one thing I'm most likely not right on the prices their going to be much higher.

      Gouging is what Teddy does best.
