iPhone 4 On Bell Canada – Launch Date Announced

Bell Mobility, Canada has officially confirmed that the carrier shall be joining Telus in offering the new iPhone 4 from Apple to customers in the Canadian market starting July 30. The Bell Canada website now invites interested customers from registering with the website in order to receive updates with respect to the launch date.

There is no word as yet on the pricing details. But do not expect the tariffs to be too different from what is offered on the Telus network. Also, it is not clear if the company will open up pre-sales though an announcement in this regard should be made shortly – We are not too far away from the July 30 launch date, anyway.

Not much information offered on the Bell website for now. It’s all rehashed content from Apple.

iPhone 4 Launch In Canada To Be Delayed?

The new iPhone 4 shall not be hitting Canada on June 24. However, Steve Jobs had noted in his keynote address during WWDC 2010 that the new iPhone shall be available in Canada from July. The tentative date of launch was expected to be between July 7 and 15.

However, there are now speculations that this may not happen. Folks at BGR have noticed a small change in wording on the Apple website where “Coming In July” has now been replaced with “Coming Soon“.

While the optimistic lot among you may interpret this as an indication for the iPhone 4 to be available before the end of this month, the likelihood for this is pretty slim. Apple has seen yet another record breaking launch that saw over 600,000 iPhone 4 units pre-ordered on the opening day – so much so that Apple had to stop pre-orders midway.

This being the case, an advancing of the Canada launch is unlikely. Instead, chances are high that customers in Canada may yet again have to bear the brunt for the success of an Apple device in the US.

iPhone 4 In Canada

Canada is not among the list of countries where Apple will be launching their new iPhone on June 24th this year. But as Steve Jobs had noted during his WWDC 2010 keynote address, the iPhone could be hitting the Canadian market in July.

According to reports, three Canadian carriers – Rogers, Telus and Bell shall be offering the iPhone 4. While the price of iPhone 4 in this North American market is not yet known, speculations are that the price will stay around the $199 and $299 price point that has been announced for the US. Besides this, the carriers are also likely to enforce on the three year contract that has been the norm in this part of the world.

The launch dates will be out shortly. You can sign up to Rogers for information on the availability when it is out.
