Rogers Wireless, Canada’s largest wireless carrier with Canada’s fastest wireless network, celebrated the Canadian launch of the iPhone 3G last Friday to unprecedented popular demand. Following the weekend, Rogers Wireless confirmed that the launch shipment of tens of thousands of iPhone 3G sold out in the vast majority of cities across the country. Anticipating high demand from Canadians, Rogers Wireless pre-ordered continuous new inventory shipments and today announced that tens of thousands of new devices have already arrived in Canada. Canadian iPhone 3G fans who missed launch weekend sales will see new stock in store and online starting today and across the country by Tuesday, July 15.
“As Canada’s leading wireless carrier, Rogers Wireless is thrilled to bring iPhone 3G to Canadians on Canada’s fastest wireless network,” says John Boynton, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless. “With iPhone 3G, we’ve had the best weekend sales of a handset in Rogers Wireless history. We want to thank all our customers for their enthusiastic response, as we welcome our new iPhone 3G customers to the fastest and most reliable network in Canada, and we appreciate the loyalty of all our existing customers who upgraded to an iPhone 3G. For our future iPhone 3G customers, tens of thousands of new devices will be in stores from coast to coast no later than tomorrow.”
iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone with 3G networking that is twice as fast(*) as the first generation iPhone, built-in GPS for expanded location based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs the hundreds of third party applications already built with the recently released iPhone SDK.
