Apple Canada Prep

Apple Canada is gearing up some of its representatives in advance of an upcoming event, Electronista has learned. Key staff are being asked to travel to the company's Markham, Ontario regional headquarters for discussions that are taking place today. The discussions are considered secret, and staff contacted regarding the nature of the meetings have declined comment on any specifics. However, they allude to preparations for upcoming Apple developments rather than a regularly scheduled meeting.

The move is unusual for Apple, which more often organizes conference calls to brief remote representatives in the country rather than arranging for in-person meetups at a central location.

While Electronista stresses that the ongoing meeting may address relatively unimportant subjects or those not yet in the public eye, the unusual event comes just over two weeks before Steve Jobs' confirmed WWDC keynote, which industry analysts and rumors suggest will mark the announcement of an iPhone with 3G cellular data support. Previous information relayed from other sources has hinted that Canadian cell provider Rogers Wireless may carry the iPhone in June, necessitating preparation for staffers needed to sell or support the product.

    maybe they needed to meet with them face-to-face and get their physical reaction when they are told there will be no iPhone in Canada for another couple of years.

    testudo = lol

    that was a good one. :)

    I was all excited about the iphone coming to canada... but since its taken so long, the novelty has worn off... If it happens in June, it still might be a little to late. Especially for me since my phone crapped out 3 months ago and I decided blackberry was the next viable option.

    We've all heard that Rogers is the carrier here in Canada... but I heard some ramblings that it might be Fido... any info on that?
