It cannot get more official than a press release! With the news yesterday that Bell is launching their HSPA network sometime in November, they have released a statement today that confirms the rumours of getting the iPhone. The statement is incredibly short and to the point: “Bell and Apple have reached an agreement to bring iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS to Canada this November”.
In addition, TELUS has released a statement that rings familiar “TELUS and Apple have reached an agreement to bring iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS to Canada this November.” TELUS has also put a registration page together that gets you to sign up for launch dates, pricing and plans. Visit it here
No word on pricing but you can almost bank on Bell only offering 3-year contracts at the start and at the same price points as what Rogers is currently selling:
iPhone 3GS 16 GB: $199.00 on a 3-year contract
iPhone 3GS 32 GB: $299.00 on a 3-year contract
iPhone 3G 8 GB: $99.00 on a 3-year contract
iPhone 3G 16GB: $149.00 on a 3-year contract
