If you missed out on pre-orders via the official carriers, you’re not out of luck just yet. Starting this Thanksgiving weekend from Saturday, October 8th to Monday, October 10th, Future Shop will offer iPhone 4S pre-orders for Rogers, Fido, Telus, Bell, Virgin, and Koodo.
This will take place across all 149 Future Shop stores, and requires a $50 deposit to secure your phone, as described to us by Future Shop in an email. This is the first time we’ve seen iPhone 4S pre-orders for Koodo.
Future Shop has turned the long weekend into an iPhone weekend. Yesterday, the electronics chain offered a one day iPhone 4 sale, free on a three year contract.
As for iPhone 4S pre-orders from Apple.ca, arrival times have now lengthened to 1-2 weeks. It was reported by Reuters AT&T in the U.S. sold over 200,000 pre-orders in 12 hours. Even though some have viewed the iPhone 4S as a minor upgrade, pre-orders for the device has remained high worldwide.
