iPhone is Coming to Canada!!!

October 30, 2007

As the advertisement above shows, we may be seeing the iPhone a lot sooner than I had originally assumed. If you’ve had a chance to play with the iPhone, you’ll have realized what an amazing toy it is. If you think about it, you probably payed $200+ for you iPod and now you can get an iPod, Camera, and Phone all in one. Good deal, yes. The user interface is also genius.

However, I dislike the fact that even though the Canadian Currency is worth more than the American Dollar, that the price of this phone is still a lot higher in Canada. The phone is about $120 USD more expensive in Canada. Not only that, data charges are a lot higher in Canada so you can’t really use the phone to its fullest. Should Canadians be angry, yes.

    However, some people in the industry believe the Black berry won’t loose much market share to the iPhone. What’s your opinion?


  2. And since you brought it up, what do you think about the currency difference? Economists are pretty unanimous that it’s BAD for Canada in the long-run.

    Some businesspeople are saying that the higher Canadian dollar forces Canadian companies to become more efficient and creative, because of higher exposure: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20071025.wrrogers25/BNStory/Technology/home
