Canada iPhone 4 Launch Fast Tracked?

June 18th, 2010

It looks like Apple Canada has removed the “Coming in July” banner on the device from the online store.  This change could mean one of two things: either the July launch has been fast-tracked or it has been pushed back.

The Canadian carriers have always said that the iPhone was launching in the “coming week”, if the launch was planned for July why did they no say the device would launch next month.  Also, the end of July is still 6 weeks away, giving Apple plenty of time to catch up to demand.  This leads me to hope believe that “Coming Soon” is referring to sometime this month, after all it would not make sense for Apple to say “Coming in June” as the month is already half over.

I can hope…right?

    I hate to burst your balloon, but, given the wild success of pre-sales in the US (with delivery dates extending to July 2nd), it is more likely that the Canadian launch date has been postponed. :-(

    What a fukin joke. Not only do we have to deal with inept Canadian cel phone carriers, but the idiots at apple can’t seems to do the math for what will be required for “launch” day. Once.. OK… TWICE!!! I guess I’ll give them some slack, BUT EVERY fucking apple launch!! Obviously Canada is a second class country. WHAT?! We have just such a vast population that we can’t be accounted for?!?! Huh?!? Every-time? Fuck you apple & and fuck you Fido, Rogers, & bell for being such pussies! Way to flex you muscle for you idiot customers.

    So far other than the 1Ghz A4 and 512MB of memory the iPhone 4 isn’t much of a new iPhone. I’m now wondering how the big three up here in Canada will distribute the iPhone? Will it be like the iPhone 3GS or are 3GS early adopters out of the party for now? I didn’t update to the 3GS so would I be able to get first choice or will it be first come first serve?
