Looks like good ol’ Uncle Ted has decided not to sell the Nokia E71 on his discount Fido network but rather on his flagship and namesake Rogers network. Primed for a Q4 launch, the choice of Rogers over Fido is a bit questionable for a few reasons. The Canadian market for such devices, while growing very quickly, is still rather small. And considering that most of the people this phone is aimed at already have or are planning to get a BlackBerry or an iPhone it just becomes strange. Oh, did we mention that choosing a BlackBerry is a matter of pride for most Canadians and that QWERTY smartphones from the boys of Espoo are hated on in Canadian IT departments for their ditching BlackBerry Connect? No, don’t think we did.
