Default Rogers Bringing the iPhone to Canucks

In what could be the smallest press release ever, Rogers Wireless have announced that the iPhone will become available to Canadians later this year. Details are ultra-scarce at this point, but sometime during the fall sounds reasonable, or at the end of summer. Though the release is light on details, it sounds like the deals are made and it's just a matter of finalizing them and getting things in place.
Even if it launches in the summer, it will be a full year later than I ever expected it to launch. I admit, I originally thought it was going to launch right after the US model, but that's what happens when two companies can't just hold hands and get along.
Regardless, it's about time. I'm no huge cell phone nut, but having used the iPhone on a few occasions before, I'd have no problem picking one up. It helps that my current cell phone carrier (Bell / Aliant) offers the most lackluster phones available (no GSM with them), so the decision is made a wee bit easier.

TORONTO, April 29 /CNW/ - Ted Rogers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rogers Communications Inc. today issued the following statement: 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.

Rogers is worse than Microsoft IMHO. I heard they wanted some exclusivity contract with Apple for the iPhone for 3 years or something, and Apple pretty much gave rogers the finger once they heard that...
I am blinded by the light, but in darkness I cannot see. Only in the shadow does everything become clear.
