I've heard some details on preorders being available in Canada. I'd be interested to know if I'll be able to preorder in some fashion and do a Hardware Upgrade and renew my contract, or if I'll have to go through Fido directly for that? I imagine I'll have to got through Fido, but I've heard all this talk of preorders I thought it was worth asking.

Official Apple iPhone 4S video:

should answer a few questions! Especially about how the new features look.

You are right. What a joke. Seriously makes an upgrade from my 3GS even less tempting now. Why they don't point these things out in Keynotes is beyond me. No mention of iTunes in the cloud worldwide either. There is absolutely no reason why Siri should not be ready for international launch. Some people are going to be in for a nasty surprise if they do not notice that it is only on the US site. Some nice innovations but the best part is I will save money. iPhone 5 will be worth the wait.

You'll be able to buy an unlocked iPhone 4S from Apple,
I have an iPhone with Virgin (No Contract)
So I'll be able to just sell my old iPhone 4 and then buy a new iPhone 4S from Apple.

But I'm going to wait a bit first,
I'm sure there will be a flood of people selling their old iPhone 4 now.

There was a slide that mentioned "English - US, UK, Australia" but I thought that was just Dictation. If Siri is absent in Canada that would be incredibly disappointing.

Seems all of apple.com domain is down. Can't get to anything.

No mention of Siri at all on the Canadian iPhone 4 page. I have Siri assistant on my iPhone and it only works with US cites etc... Maybe we won't get that feature all which would be very disappointing. Snubbed again for being Canadian I guess.

The new internals are really nice but the lack of a bigger screen is a huge disappointment for me. I was eyeing a Galaxy 2S and decided to wait until today to see what Apple had up it's sleeve. I'm not overwhelmed.

That't a tough bargain considering I can buy a Galaxy 2S with the same storage for $598 and it can be expanded with a micro SD.

Siri appears to be a USA only Beta. Disclaimer shows that it may not become available in all areas. I would think that it will eventually come here but God knows when.

It could be because it is BETA right now.
