And It Happened. The iPhone 4 May Be Delayed In Canada.

Share:

After seeing Apple sell 600,000 iPhone 4 units, everyone in Canada had one thought: “Is the Canadian iPhone 4 launch going to be pushed back?” Well it looks like it may have been pushed back even before the 600,000 sold units posting.

On the note of 600,000 iPhone 4 units sold, I think it is fair to say that it is a logical conclusion that the Canadian launch may be pushed back, especially considering that the iPad was also delayed by one month in Canada because of the amount of iPad units sold in the USA.

So am I fear mongering? Starting rumors? No dear Canadians, I speak only the truth.

Earlier this week, when the iPhone 4 hit the Apple Canada Online Store, the iPhone 4 was initially labeled as “Coming in July”. Almost immediately after the initial posting, the phrase was changed to “Coming Soon”. Coming Soon…as in not in July.

Now you’re thinking maybe the launch is coming even sooner, like in June? Right? RIGHT?! Well no, because if that were the case, Apple has less than two weeks to launch in Canada (and the USA!) and the website would at least say “Coming in June” instead of “Coming Soon”. Not enough time.

In other words, there is no way that Apple would change the wording unless something went wrong, as in production and supply wrong.

So once again, we Canadians may have to wait even longer for technology. Yes the iPhone 4 is unlocked, which is awesome. Yes iPhone 4 has FaceTime, which is great. But are we going to have to wait until August to get our hands on it?!

…Sigh. Make it not true. Don’t lose hope!

    For me, it said “Coming Soon” since the apple online store was updated to include iPhone 4.

  • Draz

    Oh I hope not…. I'm still hoping on a July release, even if it is late July….

  • pk

    Can I make a pun about this changing everything again?

  • F**k. And I was hoping to get one in July before my wife and I took off for vacation in the US. Having her with a US data plan would have been fantastic.

    Well, don't count July out just yet. It's possible they've just revised it for the possibility of no stock. It's only June 17th. At least wait until after Canada Day to panic. lol

    Umm … the iphone 4 “unlocked in Canada ” = no extra time spending on the lock thingy … !
    Let's cross fingers ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hold on a sec… It's not like Canada is the only other country that is supposed to get it in July. Aren't like 18 or 19 other countries supposed to be getting it in July as well? I find it hard to believe that Apple wouldn't have some sort of plan for this. Wouldn't it make sense that Apple would set aside a certain number of iPhones for each country? Would 600,000 orders really through off ALLLL their projected sales numbers? If that IS the case though and the US, UK, France and Germany are snatching up all the iPhones, you would think Apple would delay the phone launch in a more populated country. Not little old Canada… right Apple? RIGHT?!!??!

  • Maybe I jinxed it when I suggested the possibility during the podcast.

    I never liked the fact there was no exact date for Canada. My guess is we get bumped to August.

    I don't mind, gives them a chance to work the bugs out on the Americans. With any luck, we'll get a rev.2 (64GB, anyone?) by the time they finally arrive.

  • jfyu

  • Wuju

    I have a feeling the delay be me immanent to August, but may the force be with us and our will power push the date back on track – late July. Focus….

    Whaaah whaaaah, I can't get a new iPhone in July! Whaaah, I am stuck using this damn 3GS for another month, whaah! I can't believe I've almost had this phone a whole year already, whaaah

  • roadcarver

    They just want to sell as many locked units on AT&T before the unlocked ones come out within shipping distance.

    Makes me wonder if the original date of September i heard is true……

    Luckily I just got myself an ipad to play with for the next couple of months

    Ps- anyone know why the login on this site doesn't show up correctly on the iPad…..it's always up at the very top!

  • rorypiper

    I don't think it ever said “Coming in July”. I took screen shot on July 15th, for an article over at iEvolution, and it says Coming Soon.

  • rorypiper

    I don't have money for this iPhone, anyway, so the longer the better, for me. :p

  • Jimmjimmy82

    If you don't have enough money to buy a simple phone right now, then you really shouldn't be getting one even in a couple months…

  • rorypiper

    I'm not sure what you mean, but all I meant was, the longer the wait, the more time I have to save up.

  • Cv123

    The iPad was launched a month early in the US and the iPhone 4 will essentially be 1 month come mid-July…. so I don't get your point.

  • Lauramaxwellx0x

    you think you've got it bad…. i have this dumb-ass blackberry curve cause my i phone 3g shut down and stopped working completely and my BB is completely scrooed too but rogers wont fix it for me cause they're idoits so now i have to wait even longer with this broken phone before i can get the i phone 4
