One of my students has a friend who works at Apple, and who visited recently with their iPhone. They really exist and they seem to work in Canada! They couldn'y say much about it, but it seems to live up to expectations. (I didn't get to play with it myself.)

It's well known that the iPhone uses GSM technology and thus was expected to roam fine on Rogers (the only Canadian GSM carrier). Most people this means Rogers is the only possible Canadian carrier. While a senior executive from Rogers has recently stated that discussions with Apple are still at an early stage, this news implies that truly desperate Canadians can snag an American model and use it safely in Canada.

(Note: this entry is superceded by the announcement of the iPhone, and it's subsequent unlocking and use in Canada. A more recent blog entry is this one).

Re: iphone in Canada

when when when. Maybe I should just get AT&T and use roaming in Canada, since Rogers is overpriced anyhow!
