iPhone coming to Canada????

There have been a number of rumors on when/if the iPhone is coming to Canada and whether it will be offered through Rogers. Initial stories were stating release somewhere between Nov 2007 and Feb 2008.

The latest "unofficial" word from someone within Rogers is that though iPhone support training has already begun, discussions between Rogers and Apple are not going quite so well. Apparently Apple has rejected one of Rogers offers or conditions related to a conflict with another provider (won't say who) that was given rights to carry the iPhone in North America.

Again, these are unofficial reports but hopefully it means that we are closer than we were a few months ago. My worry is whether Rogers can wake up and provide a decent data plan.
