Import the iPhone to Canada: the ultimate guide


iPhone Updated.

With all the various unlocking methods coming out for the iPhone I was going to blog about them, but it turns out that Vancouver freelance designer Dave Shea has a very good post up on his own blog Mezzoblue [mzb] about how to get one of Apple’s new iPhones. Unlike 90% of the stuff that’s been in the local press about the issue of bringing an iPhone into Canada, his post is factual, understandable and helpful. It was so good it even got some link love from Daring Fireball [df].

The Province‘s article on the topic was hilariously bad, and ended up being just an ad for the over priced grey market stores that are selling iPhones locally for an obscene markup.

Meanwhile if you’ve been waiting for Rogers or Fido to get the iPhone in, my best guess is that you’re going to be waiting at least until midway through 2008. If they were going to launch them they’d want to get them out by at least October to maximize on the holiday season.

Myself? I’ve decided to wait and make do with my BlackBerry and the new iPod touch.
