Howard Chui (owner of HowardForums.com) was interviewed by the Business News Network. They were comparing the Apple iPhone, Samsung Insinct and BlackBerry Bold and how they rate against each other. The surprise twist comes at the end of the interview. He was asked the type of phone he uses… the Nokia N95 8GB. Fantastic and hilarious end to an interview. Watch it here:
“I feel kind of lame, but kind of awesome all at the same time.” Christian Meagher, the first in Canada to buy the new Apple iPhone 3G. He was at the Rogers Wireless store in Halifax today.
Both Rogers Fido has stepped up and now show the long awaited Apple iPhone 3G is available in Canada! As you probably know by now the price is $199 (With 3-year Rogers/Fido Agreement and subscription to an iPhone rate plan or other select plans.)

Some small details still need to be tweaked, such as if you go to the Fido site and magnify the actual iPhone you will see that they still have the AT&T logo on the devise.

**Update**The line-up was around the corner today at Younge/Dundas Square in Toronto, seems to be about 400 people waiting for the doors to be open. We asked the Rogers staff how many iPhones are available: 100.
Here’s a video of the iPhone launch day line-up that still has Jordon Brown eagerly waiting to officially purchase the devise:
Jordon Brown is first in the Toronto line to purchase the long awaited Apple iPhone 3G. He started camping out at the downtown Toronto Rogers location around 4:00pm and we briefly got him speaking – and he is excited!
The rate plans dropped at the right time and he walked to the store at the right time. Jordon thought the lines would start forming around midnight – so he took a seat and became the first in line.
He has been waiting for an iPhone since his last phone broke in November so this experience will be one to remember for him. See the quick video here:
