perhaps not, but you would think their own staff would have the right information?

Joker, good pt. I don't know what the issue is. Maybe something with the CRTC? who knows.

Who knows, it's anyone's guess.

Jim Dalrymple at The Loop has always been a *Very* reliable source of information for Apple Insider Info. If he says you can use Siri in Canada, I'm inclined to believe him.

Rogers will allow customers to reserve the new iPhone on October 7th!

Just received text message:

"Reserve the new iPhone on October 7th! Because you're a valued customer we'd like to let you know that you will be able to reserve the new iPhone online through our Rogers Reservation System on October 7th! On that day sign into your My Rogers account at rogers.com/myrogers, click Device Reservation & follow the prompts to reserve."

Would be nice if this applied to Fido customers as well.

Late news: It appears that we can indeed use Siri in English in Canada. Apparently it was not featured in any of the Apple Canadian iPhone pages or store due to the fact that we have 2 official languages in Canada and Siri has not been localized for French speaking Canadians and thus they can't legally advertise Siri until this is done.

Note that Siri is indeed on the US, UK and Australian sites however none of those countries have 2 official languages.

This is the reason we're not seeing Siri on the Canadian pages but it will work in English.

Now that sounds like a good explanation. Thanks MacGenius for the info.

The other thing I found missing from the apple.ca site is the Find My Friends app. Anyone else see it there?

Found it. It's under the iCloud part.

I still don't see why they couldn't mention it on the Apple.ca site with the same disclaimers that are on the US site - may not work in some regions, may not work in some languages.

You see stuff advertised all the time in Canada with the fineprint that it isn't available in Quebec, so if that is all it was, why would'nt Apple do the same?

Unless there is somethingofficial or on the Apple.ca site, I won't pre-order based on assumptions and speculation.
