“DigitalJournal.com has learned from an inside source at Holt Renfrew that the luxury retailer will have the iPhone in about two weeks,” Christopher Hogg reports for Digital Journal.
“We have to say this is still in rumour phase, as Holt Renfrew’s publicity department would not confirm it with DigitalJournal.com. However, the source inside Holt Renfrew was adamant the phone would be arriving shortly, after speaking with the retailer’s buyers,” Hogg reports.
“The Holt Renfrew source says the 8GB phone will be a GSM phone, retailing across the country for $799. Anyone familiar with the GSM market in Canada knows that Rogers is the leading GSM provider in the country… A Rogers customer service employee let news slip the company would have the iPhone exclusively in Canada back in January, which the company retracted a week later,” Hogg reports.
