SaskTel Clarifies Comments Made About Next iPhone

Share:

Yesterday there was a story posted about how the President of SaskTel might have leaked the confirmation of the next iPhone coming in June (AT&T employee blackout in June seems to confirm a new iPhone). Anyways, the story from Leader Post went absolutely viral on the internet yesterday, as many large US blogs and media picked up the story.

SaskTel Clarifies Comments Made Regarding the “Next” iPhone

SaskTel contacted us with a press release stating the following:

At this time, SaskTel is currently working with cellular device vendors and partners, both current and new, to offer our customers a wide variety of devices to meet our customers’ individual needs, including the iPhone.

The comments made by the SaskTel President and CEO in a news article on April 15, 2010 were not a confirmation of a release of a new version of the iPhone.  The President was commenting on information that has been reported publicly and on the Internet for several months, which has speculated on the timing of a new release.

?

So there you have it. It seems the President’s comments were most likely taken out of context in the Leader-Post iPhone story. The good news is that Saskatchewan-ians (?) will be getting the iPhone! 🙂

  • Woo! It's about time! I hated leaving SaskTel for Rogers when the iPhone came to Canada. I plan to pay out my Rogers contract and switch back to SaskTel as soon as possible.

    From Story: “The good news is that Saskatchewan-ians (?) will be getting the iPhone! “…

    We've had the iPhone since the rest of Canada has had it. Only the worst carrier of all had supported it till now, Rogers. Now (hopefully) all the carriers (Virgin, koodo, telus, etc) can support it by using SaskTel's new 3G network that is coming. Market laws dictate, more competiiton = better prices. Will probably stick with Rogers when I get a new iPhone HD4GSXL, as they will have competitive plans and will probably have a roaming/network sharing agreement with SaskTel to use their network anyways. Cheaper for them to piggy back like all the other carriers, than to build their own infrastructure.

    I don't mean to sound rude, but have you had your head stuck in the sand the past year? Bell and Telus with their child companies all have the iPhone. Koodo won't get it, but Virgin I think has it as well because I think they're a child company of Bell.
