Rumor: Fido Canada to Sell $99 iPhone 4GB -- With Video iChat?!

Boy Genius' ninjas -- Canuck chapter -- have gotten their tiger-clawed hands on what looks to be Fido Canada's 2009 roadmap. Fido, which was bought by Rogers and is now marketed as the budget-conscious GSM brand, carries the iPhone 3G, and if this leak is correct, just might next be carrying:

a 4GB iPhone model that will run for $99 and come with quad-band EDGE, tri-band HSDPA, a 2 megapixel shooter and, believe it or not, iChat video calling

The Rogers/Fido network might support video iChat better than AT&T's but we can't see Apple making something as huge as that without doing it global, much less on bigger devices than 4GB...

What do you think, is it real, or is it fakaroid?
