At long last, Rogers announces the iPhone in Canada


It’s about damned time. Though Rogers hasn’t said much else, so we don’t know if this is the rumoured 3G model, or whether they’ll reduce their ridiculous data rates to something civilized. Since I already have an iPhone, I’m waiting to see just how much better the new phone will be…and then we’ll see.

Interesting but I have to wait and see what the data plan is going to be. But then since I’m not working I don’t think it would be in my interest to consider getting one either way.

Jean-Paul Samson says:

Some analysts have speculated what the plan will entail given the history of Canadian cell providers:

+ Up to 500 minutes talk time
+ Voice mail, caller id, etc.
+ 100 – 200 MB of data
+ $80 – $100 per month

Warren Frey says:

If they try to pull that…unacceptable. I plow through 200 mb in a week.
