Fido and Rogers both nabbing the iPhone in Canada


Yes, Fido and Rogers have now both committed to bringing the iPhone 3G to Canada on July 11, but let's be honest: that just means Rogers is getting the iPhone, since Fido is Rogers. It's no coincidence, then, that both carriers will be offering the thing for $199 and $299 CAD (about $195 and $293) for the 8GB and 16GB models, respectively. There's a nasty catch, though: unlike AT&T in the States -- and presumably many other carriers offering the iPhone 3G on a heavy subsidy -- these puppies are going to tie you up for a full three years instead of the typical two. Canadian carriers and their customers are already well acquainted with the three-year contract concept, true, but that doesn't make it suck any less.
