What the New iPhone Means to Canadians

Apple iPhoneIn early 2007, Steve Jobs announced the Apple iPhone, a shiny, new gadget that could pretty much do everything. The only downside was that it was only available in the U.S. at first. Several months later, it made its way up north and Canadians joined in on the fun as well.

On June 8, Apple announced the release of a newer iPhone, the 3G S model. It promises to be cheaper than its older sibling was when it was introduced.

Rogers, along with Fido, said the 16GB and 32GB versions of the new Apple iPhone 3G S will be available to consumers on June 19. The prices are $199 and $299, both will be available in black or white. The existing iPhone 3G (8GB) will be for sale for just $99 (on a three year voice and data contract).  If you don’t want to sign a contract, that is also an option. Rogers and Fido will also be offering the $30/6GB plan for iPhone customers for a limited period again.

Those customers who do not purchase a contract will have to fork over about $700 for the device.
