As with anything, Canadians always seem to get shafted when it comes to getting the latest and greatest compared with our American neighborinos. Not only did we have to wait a year for the iPhone to arrive last June, but we also have to sign a bloody 3 year contract (as opposed to the 2 years on AT&T) just to be able to call the phone our own. Well, according to The Boy Genious Report, the tides are indeed turning as screenshots from Best Buy’s inventory clearly show Fido and Rogers selling both the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 3G S for $699/$799, respectively.
Now this is great news no doubt for those who prefer to avoid contracts like a bad case of SARS and H1N1. But is $699 too much for the the latest ‘Jesus Phone’ commitment free ? Personally, 7 large ones isn’t nearly painful as the $1100 CAD I dropped on my Sony Erisson P910i a few years back, or the $1000 I paid for my first gen Compaq iPaq Pocket PC. Regardless, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of demand for these contract free bad boys. What do you think? Will you grab a no-contract iPhone? More inventory screenies after the break…
