I just conducted some exhaustive and scientific research, trying to gather more information about iPhone availability in Canada as the big US release date approaches.
OK. Some clarification. By "exhaustive" I mean "I did a lap around Market Mall and poked my head into the Rogers and Fido shops" and by "scientific" I mean "I asked them 'so... iPhone much?'"
Regardless... The typical response was something like "eye phone? no." That is, when I got a response at all.
So, I'm assuming this means one of 3 things:
- no iPhone in Canada anytime soon
- iPhone in Canada is pending, under a veil of secrecy enforced by threat of bodily harm to family pets
- clerks in cellphone shops are utterly clueless.
Personally, my money is split evenly on 1 and 3. I'd love to be wrong. I'd love to get my grubby little mitts on one of those suckers ASAP to start playing with what could be done for teaching and learning with a fully functional portable and mobile computer...
