I think Ted is stealing Steve's thunder on this one.
Albeit an ambiguous timeframe.
Big news. It's having the headlines today.
ah good! perhaps the end of the random "when is iphone coming to canada?" posts in threads that have nothing to do with the introduction of iphone to canada.
Nice to hear it is finally coming.
End of year is kinda ambigious, but better then nothing.
I wonder how this coincides with 3G iPhones, and if Rogers can support higher speeds on it's network?
FINALLY!!! I can't wait to have a 3G iPhone and never having to worry about it getting bricked!
YEAH!!! THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU STEVE!!!
Ted.... about friggin' time!
Rogers to Bring iPhone to Canada
Rogers Communications Inc announced that they have come to a deal with Apple to finally offer the iPhone in Canada later this year. Ted Rogers, President and CEO of Rogers issued the following brief statement:
No other details are provided, but the announcement should provide some assurance to Canadians that the iPhone will finally be available to them. Apple is rumored to introduce their next generation 3G-capable iPhone around June.
It might not be in June like the rest of the free world though...typical Rogers
... I will laugh when they Bring the iPhone 1 to canada and the rest of the world are on iPhone 3G
Only to have them replaced by "Yay! We're finally getting the iPhone!" posts.
I just read the main article on the Globe's main website.
Sadly, no mention of a price reduction in data and rate plans, and no actual timeline given. Really, thisn't so much news as repetition of what we already knew: at some point, the iPhone would come to Canada.
I'm still content using mine as a iTouch, at least until plans improve.
Canadians will happily purchase all the EDGE phones that show up on eBay, I suspect. In addition, of course, to the new iPhone.
We Americans made sure that when you Canadians got your iPhones, you'd have SDK and 3G. So, you're welcome.
No more whining Canadians, huzzah!
You Americans? Every American personally made sure that the iPhone came to Canada over a year late? Umm... thanks?
THANK GOD!!! Now the whining will finally come to an end!
You're forgetting the farts, treasure hunting and kraft dinner.
I'm not so much interested in the Rogers announcement (it was really only a matter of time), as I am in how the Comwave iPhone trademark was settled. For those not in the know, one of the reasons why it's taken so long for the iPhone to show up is the fact that the name "iPhone" is trademarked already as a VOIP phone by a company up here called Comwave.
That's what I'm wondering.. anyone reading this thread know if Rogers can support 3g?
Canadian ex-pat in Florida
And the whining about whining came come to an end too, maybe.
congrats, canada, apparently you are on steve's map!!
Haha good one.
Now The Netherlands please Steve?
Finally! Rogers is already 3g in the centers so I am thinking this will coincide nicely with june's wwdc. Awesome.
Rogers is 3G enabled ( as is Fido ).
If Rogers don't introduce cheaper data rates, the iPhone will be a luxury item ( for mobile internet ).
Yes, they have 3G in the top 25 cities according to their website.
When will T-Mobile/USA be getting the iPhone??!! AT&T blows in my area...but T-Mob works well...
