When Will the iPhone 5 Come to Canada? (I want one, too)

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.

I’m not sure if you recognize that famous line from the 1980’s commercial, but it’s how I feel today.

Today, about 6 hours ago, Apple announced what (us) Apple fanboys already knew – the iPhone 5 is here.

So why do I quote the “I’ve fallen…” line?  Because I feel I’ve fallen from my “I never owned a iPhone and I never will!” podium.  Yes, up to today, I’m pretty proud to say I’ve never owned an iPhone.  In fact, the “semi-smart” LG C555 I got a few months ago is my first smartphone.

All the media buzz, the shiny 2-tone exterior, faster, stronger, thinner, lighter…the big-assed screen….dammit, I Want One!

But here I sit in awe, re-reading all of today’s press releases, drooling like some Pavlovian tech-whore.

But When Does the iPhone 5 Come to Canada?

If you’re like me, the first question is “When can I have it?”  For me, when is the iPhone 5 coming to Canada?

Well, if you wondering, too – here’s the official news:

Let me know… please let me know there’s someone else out there like me…. that someone else is caving.

Will this iPhone will be your first iPhone?
