Me too! Its been too long without any kind of news about a flagship device! I hope Rogers carries these as well! I'll be extremely disapointed if they aren't offered. We missed out on a lot of different devices. Lumia 930, Lumia 1520, HTC ONE M8 etc. So I hope we don't miss out on these!
So, will Rogers actually carry any of these phones or continue ignoring the Win phone fans?
I agree its been frustrating for fans of Windows phones. A lot of great tech passed us by and were not available to us. 1520, 930, HTC ONE M8 for windows. It doesn't surprise me though as there are less than 500,000 Canadians using Windows phones. Based on that number is probably hard for carriers to justify buying those devices. Its a shame though. The 1520 is going to be 2 years old this August and the tech in that phone is still competitive with what is on the market now. It was still a better phone than the iPhone6 Plus and it was released a year earlier in my opinion.
I will say though, I found the advertising for the Lumia 920 disapointing. I just hope that when the windows 10 flagships are released that Microsoft really throws some serious dollars at advertising to engage the Canadian market and show how good it is and can be. The public perception of windows phones is not flattering from my experience and usually always based on ignorant bias.
