The iPhone has now been out for four months in the United States, and the device is set to arrive in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom in time for Christmas. Other countries, including Canada, are conspicuously absent from Apple's press page, but that may not last long.
The guys at The Boy Genius Report have snagged a leaked Rogers ad that suggests the iPhone is headed to the great Canadian north this year. Rogers' purported ad quotes a December 7 launch date for the Canadian iPhone, although customers in Canada will apparently be asked to cough up $499.99 CAD for the iPhone—almost $120 more than what Apple charges for the U.S. iPhone. The $499.99 CAD fee is part of a three-year contract with Rogers Wireless, too.
According to The Boy Genius Report, pre-orders for the Canadian iPhone may begin on November 20. The site mentions that this date is as of yet unconfirmed, however.
