Video Rewind: iPhone 3G launch in Canada

Apple is reporting that the iPhone 4S is its best-selling product ever, moving more than 4 million products in the opening weekend.

Canadians lined up at Apple Stores and other retailers selling the mobile device, as has become standard practice for iPhone releases. Even back in 2009 when the iPhone 3G became the first model launched officially in Canada, lineups awaited store openings in malls nationwide. At the time, some consumers protested the data plans sold with the iPhone, but consumers buying the newest iPhone don’t seem to have the same complaints. Do you think the data plan situation has improved in Canada, or have we just accepted it as reality?

Here’s our video of the iPhone 3G launch in January 2009.
