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?

Rogers to Bring iPhone to Canada

https://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogodarkd.png

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:
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.
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.

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.

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?

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 ).
