“Molson Coors Brewing Co. has pulled the iPhone as a prize in a marketing contest in Quebec after a big snafu about when the device will be available,” Catherine McLean reports for The Globe and Mail Update.
“The hopes of Canadian iPhone fans were raised briefly yesterday after it was revealed in Molson’s contest rules that the cool cellphones from Apple Inc. would be available starting January on Rogers Communications Inc.’s network,” McLean reports.
“A red-faced Molson quickly backed away from that schedule, saying it made a mistake,” McLean reports.
“The beer giant has no idea when the iPhone will be launched here, and only wanted to give contest participants a rough idea of when their prizes would be available, according to spokeswoman Marie-Hélène Lagacé. She also corrected an earlier statement that Molson was on the Rogers waiting list for the iPhone, confirming a waiting list doesn’t exist,” McLean reports.
