The Great Canadian iPhone Petition

RE: Petition for the sale of the Apple iPhone in Canada

The iPhone is a revolutionary cellphone, communications, and multimedia device produced by Apple Inc. that has sparked much interest worldwide. As Time and Stuff magazines' Invention of the Year in 2007, and ComputerWorld's second most important invention of the year, it has certainly interested customers worldwide, in particular, the ones living in Canada.

Apple iPhone was released in the USA on June 29th, 2007. Soon after, iPhones were introduced in the United Kingdom, Germany and France in November 2007, and in Ireland and Austria in March 2008.

However, the USA's largest trading partner and neighbour, Canada, does not have the iPhone yet. At the same time the customers of Rogers Wireless Communications Inc. have been receiving the following, apparently standard, response to their iPhone-related inquiries as early as in February 2007:

"Rogers is actively working with Apple to launch the iPhone in Canada as soon as possible and will be the exclusive provider of the iPhone in Canada.

Rogers will be offering the iPhone exclusively in Canada but launch date and pricing for Canada are not yet available. Other Canadian wireless carriers will not launch the iPhone; Rogers will be the only Canadian wireless carrier to offer the iPhone.

We appreciate your continuing patronage. Please contact us at your convenience if you have any further inquiries."

Now more than a year later, there's still no official release date for the iPhone in Canada. The purpose of this petition is to call for the support and introduction of the iPhone for wireless users in Canada, or at least for some official announcement as to the current state of the situation.

We, the undersigned, pledge our support to Rogers Communications Inc., that we would support the launch of the iPhone in Canada.

We pledge that if the iPhone was released in Canada by Rogers Communications Inc. and Apple Inc, we would purchase an iPhone along with a monthly data plan.

We pledge to spread the word to our friends and family to promote the sale of iPhones in Canada.

Please recognize the demand for the iPhone in Canada. Or at least, please give us a release date to look forward to. Thank you.

This online petition is advocated by the two largest iPhone-related websites in Canada: www.iphoneworld.ca and www.iphoneincanada.ca , together accommodating over 100,000 Canadian readers a month.

Sincerely,

 

The Undersigned
