  1. Hah! More BS: no Rogers store got delivery. Everyone says, “It launched, yeah—but the shipment’s been delayed.” I’m being told to expect stock sometime later this week; one rep specifically said “Friday”.

    HOLY S**T. ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER WITH THESE PEOPLE, WHAT A FIASCO. This phone was supposed to be here in August; Bell’s had it since April.

    It is now October 25th. How is it a launch, if nobody can get one?
