Fear not Rene, it looks like a legit iPhone (not that other thing) is finally coming in all its glory to our neighbors to the north. According to their sources, The Star is reporting that an iPhone deal between Rogers and Apple is close to being done and that it may change the landscape of Canadian Telcos. We won’t even mention the fact that an iPhone in RIM’s playground would add yet another layer to an immensely entertaining battle between RIM and Apple..

Though there are still obvious obstacles such as the fact that Rogers is “not a fan of unlimited plans” and that Apple’s number one priority is such unlimited data, it seems like the clock is ticking for Rogers to make a deal. However, with a 3G version just around the corner, could you imagine the Canadian angst of knowing that their “new” iPhone is already a generation old?

What do you say Canadians (read: Rene)? Do you have faith in Rogers to pull this off? Or will you be stuck with those exorbitant data costs until who knows when?
