[3G iPhone] Removed From Canadian Apple Stores
Apple, disgusted with outrageous service plans Rogers is forcing on Canadians, has decided not to sell the 3G iPhone in Apple Stores come July 11th.
According to an AppleInsider article, Apple wants no part in helping the carrier market the new handset to customers. Instead Rogers and Fido will be left alone to trick customers into steep 3-year contracts that require a minimum monthly payment of $60 for just 150 minutes, 75 text messages, and 400MB of data.
This information comes after an earlier report that Apple had decided to divert significant inventory from Canada to Europe as an initial punishment.
Rogers excessive rates have sparked a huge outcry in Canada where a petition at http://www.ruinediphone.com has already collected almost 50,000 signatures.
