Oh Canada: No iPhone for the Great North, Yet

Oh Canada: No iPhone for the Great North, Yet

Bad news for my readers above the 49th parallel. Canada's largest wireless operator, Rogers Communications, gave a statement to Bloomberg.com yesterday. Nadir Mohamed, Roger's COO (that's chief operating officer for you neophytes) stated that while he'd love nothing more than offer iPhone to his customers, Apple and the carrier have yet to seal a deal. Mohamed goes on to concede that Europe is four times larger in market size compared with Canada, and is therefore the most likely target for Apple's next iPhone play. And he's right.

That really sucks, eh?

Interview: My One on One Interview with Fake Ed Colligan, Palm CEO

In a rare candid interview, we sat down with Fake Ed Colligan, chief executive officer of Palm Computing. Ed graciously agreed to a conversation with us to discuss a number of relevant issues including Palm's troubled past and market missteps in the handset industry. So let's get to it.

TIB: Ed, first off I want to thank you for taking time out from your schedule to speak with us. I'm sure you're a very busy guy these days, what with the board transition, the Elevation Partners deal, and shareholder approval.

Ed: Oh, not all. My pleasure. In fact I'm really not that busy these days.

Surprise! Price Drop Spurs iPhone Demand, Analysts Stunned

Surprise! Price Drop Spurs iPhone Demand, Analysts Stunned

From the Department of Duh comes word that Apple's recent $200 price drop on the popular 8GB iPhone has led to a sharp increase in sales. Now I know that news will knock my readers over like bowling pins, but do try and steady yourselves.

Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster conducted a 50 hour survey of Apple Stores (I assume the poor guy took a break sometime) compiling concurrent sales data - cause that's what bean counters do. He came away with less than surprising results; iPhone sales are up, w00t! He reckons that Apple sold 27,000 units per day within a five day period in order to arrive at its ballyhooed 1 million unit milestone. Not bad sales performance, what.

Crazy Analyst Predictions: 3G iPhone Coming by Christmas, Santa Steve Stuffs Coal in Our Stockings

If Apple's recent $200 8GB iPhone price drop didn't cause enough fiasco, the arrival of a 3G empowered model by Christmas will have iRate iPhone fans carrying torches and pitchforks.

Forward Concepts analyst Will Strauss believes that backdoor licensing agreements between Apple and 3G hardware makers gives strong indication the fruity phone maker will drop a 3G model down our chimneys by December.

He goes on to say that such a device has been in development in Santa Steve's workshop for several months. In Strauss's estimation the time is ripe. Alright, I'll go along with that.

Got your blood boiling yet? No, well how about this: said 3G model will be destined to Europe...not the U.S. Merry Christmas.

Site Mocks Apple's Rebate Offer, Makes Lisa Analogy

Humor site BBspot threw down the oven mitt today, mocking Apple's recent decision to credit early iPhone adopters. Editor Brian Briggs made a comical, if poignant, news blurb announcing that Apple is making a similar compensatory deal with previous owners of Apple's long forgotten PC, the Lisa.

Insulting and entertaining at the same time. I love it.
