Since there are now a lot more Canadians with iPads, as of this weekend, I thought it would be a good idea to go over jailbreaking, and why it might be for you. We may have talked about this already, but I’m sure there are quite a few new visitors to the site, now that the iPad is finally available in Canada.
Let’s start fresh. What is jailbreaking? Jailbreaking … Read More
Update May 31/10: This sale is a worldwide sale. Not just the USA. Confirmed by ZAGG. Happy shopping!
Did you finally purchase your iPad? Still looking for a case? The Apple iPad Case in my opinion an awesome case. If you aren’t a fan of bulky cases, then you will need the invisibleSHIELD from ZAGG. I use the invisibleSHIELD on my iPhone 3GS, MacBook, and iPad. … Read More
Update May 31/10: After contacting Telus PR, they have answered some questions. There is no way to cap data at 500MB, as users must self monitor. Also, the data plan is capped at 5GB. Plus, Telus iPad app coming soon.

Leading up to the Canadian launch of the Apple iPad, Rogers Wireless was very clear that Fido would not be supporting the iPad at launch. However, that did leave the possibility of Fido supporting the iPad at a later time.

Canadians pre-ordered their iPads on May 10th. The arrival date for orders was supposed to be today but it seems that a FedEx delay has caused many orders to be late and not on time. This is a disappointment to everyone who pre-ordered if they can’t get the iPad on the launch date. What’s the point of pre-ordering if you could’ve gone to a store today and nabbed … Read More
I finally received my iPad….whoppeee! Now I’m in the process of setting it up. Rogers has conveniently posted a guide to assist iPad users with the setting up the 3G data plan.
The guide covers first-time activation, managing accounts, and offers details on data usage limits, plan cancellation and more.
Here are the highlights from Rogers on how to set up the initial 3G activation:
How to activate on the Rogers network:
Update 1: Looks like Best Buy “tickets” indicate a $50 for 5GB plan from Telus. Also, the first month of activation on 3G is unlimited data. Also reports of a $35 setup fee.
Thanks to the guys in the comments for the updates!

Good morning! Today is a significant day in Canadian history–the iPad has launched! On top of the people who pre-ordered their iPads (which are on schedule to arrive today), many are lining up across Apple Stores from coast to coast.

At first, our breaking news report of an April 24th launch in Canada was blown away when Apple delayed the iPad release for International customers till late May. Our neighbours down south welcomed the iPad with open arms on April 3rd.
Finally, news came that Canadians would be able to Read More
