fake rogers ad for iphone

This  fake was found on Boy Genius and has made it to mainstream internet news on TechCrunch .  The ad looks convincing and I really thought for a moment that the Canadians will finally get their iPhones.

Rogers, Canadian leading wireless provider, however, contacted Mashable , claiming that the ad is not official.  In other words it’s a great looking fake.  Another however, Rogers does not deny nor confirm that they will be selling the iPhone on December 7 or this December or next year or never.

According to the Mashable report,  Rogers was just disappointed that the ad circulated.  On the lighter side, Rogers can now use this oppurtunity to ramp up their marketing for their someday hopefully retail of the iPhone.
