For Siri not being here in Canada it's likely a rights issue because it uses an internet based service. Especially given the US and UK availability -- it sounds a lot like the same "rights" issues that prevent a lot of web based music services from running here (but they do run in the US and the UK).

It's not searchable on the Apple website either,
It's not mentioned in the features either.

Yet it is in the video for the iPhone 4S,
Now that is very confusing.

One of my fav forums, digitalhome.ca has threads like this all the time. Every other thread can be free-for-all, but this one is special.

Apple has announced AppleCare+ for the iPhone for $99 US but not sure if this will be in Canada yet, as Apple Canada store just lists regular Applecare.



Quote:
Every iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair coverage and 90 days of telephone technical support. AppleCare+ for iPhone extends repair coverage and technical support to two years from the original purchase date of your iPhone and adds coverage for up to two incidents of accidental damage due to handling, each subject to a $49 service fee. With AppleCare+ for iPhone, Apple experts can help troubleshoot issues over the phone or at an Apple Retail Store. They’ll answer questions about iOS, Apple iPhone apps such as Mail, iMessage, and Calendar, and help you solve interconnectivity issues between your iPhone and Mac or PC. And if your iPhone needs service under the plan, Apple technical support representatives can even set up a repair during the same call.

Like I said good luck with that. Worthy to attempt but it'll be like herding cats, especially on such a hot topic.

It would be nice if they had LifeTime AppleCare that covers any Apple product you ever own. Imagine the cost... The great price of $999. Haha.

I'm just happy that iOS 5 will be here next week. I don't much care that the new 4S has an A5 processor, or Siri or a fancy new camera. My 4 is just over a year old and works just fine. I'm on a 3 year contract, so by the time next year rolls around I'll be in a better upgrade situation will Bell (hopefully, anyway) and will be able to get the iPhone 5.

I'd just want it to play games and shoot better photo's/Video's.

Oh well, Maybe I'll upgrade next year, I really just need iOS 5 anyways.

SIRI would have been nice though.

The new camera is a selling point for me. I have a more professional Nikon I carry around, but for those moments where I don't have my far bulkier Nikon with me, a decent quality camera in my iPhone, which is on my body 24/7 (OK.. not quite), will do for those photo moments.

You can thank the ever-wonderful CRTC for that. Protecting consumer rights effectively since 1968!
