iPhone 3G Available in Canada for $99 from June 19th

Big news day today from Apple, where they announced the new iPhone3G S and also reduced the price of the iPhone 3G 8GB to $99. From the press release:

Apple® today introduced the new iPhone™ 3G S, the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet, packed with incredible new features including improved speed and performance—up to twice as fast as iPhone 3G—with longer battery life, a high-quality 3 megapixel autofocus camera, easy to use video recording and hands free voice control. iPhone 3G S includes the new iPhone OS 3.0, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 100 new features such as Cut, Copy and Paste, MMS*, Spotlight Search, landscape keyboard and more.

Rogers announced the availability and pricing for the new iPhones in Canada from June 19th as well. This is what I received:

Hi Varun,

I’m sure you’ve been following the news about the new iPhone 3G S today and I wanted to confirm that Rogers Wireless and Fido will have the newest iPhones available to our customers.

Starting June 19, Rogers and Fido pricing for the iPhone will be as follows, on a three-year voice and data plan:

  • iPhone 3G – Price drop to C$99 
  • iPhone 3GS 16 GB – C$199 
  • iPhone 3GS 32 GB – C$299

There will also be a ‘no-term’ price for the new devices at launch.

Starting tomorrow and for a limited time, we’re also excited to reintroduce the 6 GB/ $30 monthly data plan for iPhone users. Other Rogers and Fido data plans will remain the same, including the only national standalone data plan at C$25 per month for 500 MB… 

Time to give in to the temptation ? And if you already did previously, time to do it all over again ? 🙂
