He also had one on hand and it is incredible, such a beautiful little device that's so fun and easy to use. The visual voice mail didn't work yet but everything else was just fine. I was supprised at how easy typing on it is and how the response of the OS is damn near organic.

It's nothing official but it should put us Canadians who felt like we were being left in the dark here at ease.

Sorry to be distrustful pal but I find it hard to believe you. I really do hate to be a cynic but really anyone can come on the forum and claim to have seen or used an iPhone. Are you able to offer any proof to back up your statements? Perhaps tell us some new information about the OS, Apps, etc that haven't been broadcast yet?

I played with it for 5 minutes (busy selling him clothes) so i don't know anything technical about it, just that it is pretty and shiny and i want one even more after actually seeing it. I really couldn't care less if you believe me or not as it's not my problem.

The harsh reality is most people won't believe you if you don't provide any proof. If you want to come on here and make unsubstantiated claims, fine, but don't be surprised when people call you on it.

I said straight out that i come bearing no proof, as i said this is "nothing official" and there is nothing for me to gain what so ever from telling a tall tale. What do you want, a picture of me playing with it while holding up todays newspaper?

Its just a little tidbit of what i know for my fellow Canadians who feel like we have been left in the dark. This is more about Rogers' plan for the phone and not about the phone itself.

Nothing to gain from telling a tall tale? How about notoriety and a sense of self importance. It would indeed be good if you had a picture, at least you'd have some form of evidence to support what you're saying. The news about Rogers is good if true, I live in Canada as well, but basically anyone can come on the forum and make up anything they want about future plans, stockpiles in warehouses, etc. So forgive me if I take your client's remarks to you with just a little grain of salt.
