Rogers announces deal with Apple to bring iPhone to Canada

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.

We can’t tell you any more about it right now… because it’ll be the next-gen iPhone Steve Jobs introduces at WWDC. (Also, we’re trying to figure out just how much more we can extract from our already-vastly-overcharged customers via our Big Ass Canadian monopoly that no other sane capitalistic country would even come close to allowing.)

  1. Rogers is what happens when a cluess, asshat government allows a monopoly in the world’s most prolific cellular standard.

    Its criminal. Glad they finally are rectifying the problem, but you Canadians need get tough on your do nothing government.

  2. MDN, Also, we’re trying to figure out just how much more we can extract from our already-vastly-overcharged customers via our Big Ass Canadian monopoly that no other sane capitalistic country would even come close to allowing.

    But we get FREE health care! Riightt!

    Anyway we can always go to the US to get immediate operations.

  3. The main reason they won’t divulge the details yet is that Rogers has got his lawyers trying to figure out how to get around the stipulations in the contract so they can charge $800/month for data and to recoup the 50% they will owe Apple for monthly fees.

  4. I am hoping for more than just the iPhone in the Great White North, come on Apple give us the Win CE/Palm replacement.

    As far as cost is concerned I am paying $110/month with no data plan currently.
