Even though there has been a couple stories over the past couple weeks about Rogers bringing on an 8GB version of the Apple iPhone 3GS, Rogers has told us that “We can’t comment on rumour or speculation”. No worries… more news today that comes straight from a screenshot of the Rogers internal website Sales Central.
According to Gizomodo, the screenshot is from the Hardware Upgrade Sales Flow system and the Rogers employee who took the picture says:
“It clearly shows that an 8GB 3GS has been added to our stock list and is the same price as the 3G coming in at 99$… The first listing is showing 74.00$ (promo price with data plan and minus customers 25$ discount)
The second listing shows the phone if the customer does not choose a data plan, which is normall 299$ minus said $25 discount, so 274$. I think that when 3G stock runs out they are going to build 99$ 3GSs since those are the parts they are ordering, might as well keep the parts list minimal…”
In addition, a comment made by a former Rogers employee had this to say about the screenshot “Being a former Rogers employee I can say that this is enough evidence to say that 8GB 3GS is coming for sure. Sales Central is the interal website that all staff use and it’s never been wrong. Hardware actually pop up on the site all the time and they have all materialized. It used to be a natural hint when we see something we don’t recognize on it and know that it is new hardware that will be shipping soon.”
So, this makes 3 leaks now… perhaps we can expect an official announcement soon!
