Unfortunately no details other than it’s coming ‘before the end of the year’.
The big questions to me are:
- How much for the phone itself in Canada?
- what does the data and voice plans look like? They better resemble the US pricing
- How long do we have to lock in? Rogers seems to like 3 year terms
- Will it be the rumoured new 3G model or as Rogers tends to be behind in releasing phones, will it be last year’s model
I’m sure there are many more questions that will come once more information is made available. This announcement seems to fly in the face of the previous (rumoured) reasons no announcements were made from Rogers concerning upcoming releases would harm current unit sales….I would think if you’re on the fence/want an iPhone/want a new phone period, you’re going to wait for more information, effectively hurting sales now.
I guess this is progress so I should be happy….so why am I expecting the worst?
