iPhone in Canada: a true status symbol
You can't afford the iPhone. Good. Shame on you for not making enough money/having kids/a car/mortgage payments.
I, on the other hand, can afford the new iPhone. ;-P
Sucks to be you.
And to think I was worried about shortages and having to stand in line with commoners/riff-raff.
Positive blog reaction to the new Rogers and Fido iPhone price plans:
-Rogers announces iPhone rates in Canada
|Rogers announces iPhone rates in Canada : Rates are bad, but not as bad as we have come to expect from Rogers.|
Negative blog reaction to the new Rogers and Fido iPhone price plans (by the way, the new plans are actually a massive price reduction to what equivalent plans would have cost just a month ago):
-Sign The Petition
-Engadget (five pages, and counting, of negative comments);
-iPhone Scam! ;
-Dear Rogers ;
These really, really negative blog posts are the fault in part of irresponsible media for publishing that Rogers was going to introduce flat rate web surfing for $30 a month. Although, in a sense, that is true, just that the unlimited surfing must happen at a Second Cup.
I have never read so many angry blog posts about a massive price reduction. iPhone 1 owners had to spend way more to buy and use the iPhone on the Rogers network. Dito for Nokia N95 and most web enabled Blackberrys and even the HTC touch!
