ITS THAT TIME AGAIN! Q4 is upon us, and PhoneModo is here to bring you the details. Of course, you can always find these soon on either themobileninjas.com and eventually it'll probably hit BGR.

So heres the skinny:
DEVICES
Rogers wants to go away from the smartphone monicker that Blackberry's and other data devices carry, so they're focussing on 'Webphones' this year. A website will be up in the next couple days (something like www.rogers.com/webphones) to further this idea. Essentially though, they want to focus on web browsing over 'smart' things like email etc. So which devices are they doing this? Whats their push?

5 WEBPHONES FOR LESS THAN $100
(thats what'll be plastered all over their advertising)
These phones are...

LG Eve- $49.99 3yr V+D
-5.0MP Camera, 3" Touchscreen, Android, WiFi, GPS
Theres going to be lots of focus on this phone apparently. It will be the social networking device for the Webphone campaign. So expect it in the commercials.

BLACKBERRY 9700 INFO>>
It was a no show in the slideshow, however the blackberry rep said $299.99 pricing and launch is in mid-November GUARANTEED (shoot for Nov. 21st on this date was his word)

Other Phones Coming..
There wasn't much information about other phones coming to Rogers, other than the 5 above, but I do know that the Nokia Mural is coming. No pricing released. And as we all know (since its now shipping out to channels) the Nokia Surge is going to be part of the Quick Messaging Device offering from Rogers. They gave a couple of those out at our launch. Nice device for some.

- Additional minutes to be added in

Time to call Rogers and complain and get a White Bold lol
 
Very useful information, thanks a bunch!
 
what about the storm 2, theres a thread on the storm 2 section on crackberry. a few people called 611 and got reps telling them they would be getting the S2


also this article from 680 news ( owned by rogers)

Is the 50$ student plan going to still be around?
The $50 student plan has become the $55 student plan and that is still around. (It was jacked up $5 for Rogers to then implement the GRRF)

No word whatsoever on the Storm2. I dont see Rogers getting it ONLY because they have so many other touchscreen phones that they dont want to cannabalize their products like that. But who knows they may well get it later on in Q4

The source is selling bold for 99 on new act all these time, they should sell for 0 dollar by now.

Rogers site says the student 55 deal expires Nov. 2nd, I hope they're going to extend that.

Good news that they're matching Bell by taking My5 Canada-wide though, it's about time!

i dont think the storm would cannabalize anything. its not the same target market. imo

business people would never buy a android phone just for the unbelievable fact that google cookies that OS like crazy.....

iphone isnt compatible with most contact managment software (act! for example)

and in all honesty i dont know anyone using a win mobile phone.

and all the crappy touchscreens that arnt using any of these operating systems arnt even considered by anyone anyways.

rant over LOL


anyways everyone is expecting a late november release on it. so well see how it goes.

You've got some valid point. But the whole point of storm2 is "try" to cannabalize iPhone (but failed) and protecting RIM's home turf (business segment)

Those who wanted iPhone and have act! database, could use intermediary software to convert to compatible format.

There are very little people using winmo os phone.

Android is a new starter, has a long way to go to grow its market.
 
rim messed up imo, the should have lauched a second division targetting the consumer market. the average person doesnt need all the security features. and doesnt really care about them. most of the people i know are using a BB because of 2 things.

push email and BBM

........

anyways.
 
"- MY5 Local is going to MY5 Canada Wide"

When you sign up for a Mega Value Combo, you're given (currently) 3 options
- My5 Local (except in the $45 MVC then you're given MY5 Canada Wide)
- 1000 or Unlimited Text messaging
- Double your minutes

NOW the options are going to be (starting in Q4)
- Unlimited Network Calling
- MY5 Canada Wide (on all MVC plans)
- Unlimited Text Messaging
- Double Your Minutes

If you have an existing package add-on of My5 Local, it will stay as My 5 local

weren't those the options back in the spring before they changed the options and reduced the daytime minutes?

Would I be right in assuming that this also applies to the $50 data/voice combo?
