    Hey guys

    I hate to be the one to bring out some bad news..... but here we go..

    I spoke to HTC , LG and Samsung Reps today ( at my work ) and they ALL confirmed that CANADA will NOT be getting any of the SECOND GENERATION WP7.5 this year!!

    So CANADA people, dont expect any new phones till the 3rd GENERATION ( q1-q2 2012)

    i know i was expecting a new WP7.5 for Xmas :(

    Does canada have different bands than USA? Couldnt you just pick one up on Ebay unlocked? Or is the problem the subsidized pricing? Wouldnt 3rd gen phones be released next fall? Or are generations changing their time span? 1st Gen was started just over a year ago and we just got gen 2 phones.

    if i order int he USA and bring it to Canada it waves my warranty. i dont like doing that. and it would cost me full price....

    Also According to HTC we will NOT get the TITANT and the RADAR! so its gona be the next once, i guess still gen 2 but if it comes out at later time i consider it GEN 3. lol

    and LG will not make any new phones till next year as well. :(

    Its very unfortunate iOS and Android are getting all the frustrated BB users up here some of that marketshare can be re-directed to a nice snappy WP7 handset (Focus Flash).

    IMO Canada needs to be brought up to speed. Marketing and training needs to be done before brining out a WP7.5.

    Maybe some time off to focus on those areas is a better idea I say when Nokia comes here come strong bring your AAA game convince Android and iOS users theres a 3rd and better option. Also bring out only quality headsets at a low price such as the Focus Flash and market those devices.

    Gaining the low -> mid range market is KEY high end can always come later. But like I said Canada isn't ready Im talking about the 99%

    when I first read the thread title, I thought we won't be getting any WP7.5 phones AT ALL but it turns out, just like all the rumors suggest, we won't be getting any new WP phones this year but we will be getting new WP phones after Nokia announces their high end models at CES.

    What's the deal with that. I've never understood why this happens. Seems like they would want these devices in as many places as possible. Oh well, don't feel bad, I can't upgrade until January.

    Well, if it makes you feel any better there isn't that much you are missing. I mean you already have a Samsung Focus that can run WP 7.5. The only differences in hardware I believe is just the upgraded processor speed. This may be a blessing in disguise, I don't know how phone contracts work up there but I think you would be pi$$ed if you got one of the phones out now when perhaps some dual-core phone is just a couple of months away from being released and you are locked into a contract. Again, you aren't really missing out unless you REALLY wanted a larger screen.

    Well, the Omnia W just passed FCC validation for NA frequency bands, and since the USA already has the Focus Flash, we surely aren't getting it...

    Likely, it's just reps who are there for support, not giving forward knowledge of phone avaliblilty.

    well normally that would be true , but they where talking about ANDROID phones , when i told them i dint care about Android and i wanted more info on WP, the rep completely opened up to me telling me how he loved WP and how MS was doing a good job , and he was saying that most people are simply NOT READY for WP . lol

    long story short he said TITANT+RADAR are NOT COMMING to Canada , he said they are working on new models for next year to launch at same time as NOKIA,

    LG and Samsung reps told me the SAME thing , but they were not as enthusiastic as the HTC rep... he was a TRUE MS FAN BOY lol.. :P

    Thanks. I'll be the guy spamming the HTC Canada Facebook page. I will have to change soon, and I'm not really interested in Android or Iphone

    actually we get most things pretty quickly..

    We have galaxy nexus before the states does on bell..

    There just isn't much demand for wp7 so carriers aren't making a big effort

    I just mean in general. I am not saying it ALWAYS happens. I mean Canada had to wait a while to get Netflix streaming and some other stuff.

    I'm just explaining why with wp7 we aren't getting much. I'm the only person I know with one. We get androids pretty much as they're released though.

    Yeah our copyright law is different from the states,
    that's why Netflix took so long. It isn't the poor underdeveloped country most Americans imagine lol

    we are just starting to catch up .. lol

    i remember a phew years back we got the HTC diamond ( windows mobile 6.1 ) we got it 1year after Europe had it

    its pretty much been like that for ever ( europe and asia is knwo to be more advance in some aspects ( cell phones and general electroniques ))

    but we are starting to see company launch phones all over the world at the same time now :)

    its all about marketing and what people want ... the market for high powered phones was pretty small in Canada up to 1 or 2 years ago.

    Now, everyone wants one ... so companies finally took their heads out of their ars and stoped making us wait :P

    like the NEXUS and the GS2

    Really? On a cell-phone forum you want to start a political fight? LOL ok have fun with that. This American is going to take the high-road and not name-call like a 10 year old just because people here are from different countries. I have relatives and friends from all over the world; most of them aren't rude like you.
