Rogers Communication announced a deal to carry Apple’s iPhone in Canada. Eamon Hoey, a sour grapes management consultant whose client list includes most of Canada’s major telecom companies except Rogers, disses the deal, calling it too little too late:
It just doesn’t matter anymore. There are now alternatives to the iPhone, which has been introduced everywhere else in the world. It’s no longer a novelty.
Equity analyst Felix Narhl said the iPhone “could hurt Rogers’ competitors Telus Mobility and Bell Canada.” Hoey’s clients? Telus Mobility and Bell Canada.
