    Seriously, isn't this a huge revenue cut for apple if they choose not to sell it in a relatively big country?

    same thing could have (and i believe was) said about the iPod Mini early in its life, and the iTunes Music Store.

    They will sell it internationally when it suits them.

    Canada may be a big country but it is pretty sparsly populated. It will get there eventually. Bigger markets first.

    The iPhone needs an unlimited data plan which Rogers/Fido do not offer. Fido used to offer unlimited before it got bought out by Rogers, 2-3 years ago. That's my guess why the iPhone won't be offered here till this important little detail is fixed. Other than that, I also believe the iPhone requires some system changes for visual voicemail that Rogers/Fido will need to implement on their system(s).

    Now, I wonder, can I pick one iPhone up from the states if I am not a US resident???
