I doubt it, how did you want to activate it without holding the home button? It would be battery intensive for it to be constantly monitoring the mic for a specific command to activate it by voice. I can't imagine any other way to activate it without a button.

Which brings us back to it being battery intensive to constantly monitor the mic for a trigger word. Kenect is tethered to an Xbox, which is plugged in to a wall....

Sorry, but they announced it months ago. See :

What You Want When You Want It: Upgrade Early with Rogers | Rogers RedBoard

Here's a relevant quote:
Pricing, eligibility and offers are subject to change so its always best to visit a local Rogers retail location where a customer service representative can check your eligibility. This new early upgrade offer applies to our entire lineup and replaces special device specific hardware upgrade offers weve had in the past, such as the iPhone 4 early upgrade offer.




But I do hope I'm wrong...

It's possible that there will be early upgrades for iPhone 4 early purchasers, though, despite what that says, depending on what kind of customer they are. In the past, Rogers always said "not available" until there was a path available.

They might allow it with a button on an earphone line. Still a button but a bit more handy.

The last two years Rogers offered me an early HW upgrade (since I always buy the new iPhone - 3G then 4 - the day it comes out).. This time around it seems they aren't doing that... $320 early HW upgrade penalty + $35 Admin Fee + $299 for the 32 GB iPhone 4S = $650... Might as well spend the extra $100 and get it fully unlocked from Apple, and not have to deal with Rogers at all!

Any thoughts?
