    Okay, maybe not the first in Canada, haha, but I was the first to get a Torch at the downtown Montreal (Eaton Centre) Rogers store this morning. There was literally no line before store opening, was nice and calm which was appreciated.

    The Canadian Torch (on Rogers) ships with .246 installed. I'm happy with the OS speed and the screen, despite what others are saying. It's crisp, bright, and relatively smooth (I'm sure it'll get smoother as new OS's are released).

    So far, so good. Going to keep playing with it, looks like I'll need to change some of my habits but I do like that there are so many different ways of doing the same thing (screen, trackpad, keyboard, etc.). Also, it's harder to type while driving, which means I'm going to stop typing while driving

    Cheers!

    Key Supraking, since you are in Montreal, Quebec, did you ask about the BOGO deal (BuyOneGetOne) for Qc customers only ?

    see this link:
    Rogers BlackBerry Torch 9800 available September 30th... plus a BOGO offer for Quebec only? | MobileSyrup.com

    Completly forgot to ask CR this morning, got so excited getting the 9800...

    Heh, I know it wasn't the first guys I was just joking around. I think the BOGO thing applies to multiple lines on the same account, and it still costs $199 for the second one ($249 minus $50 mail-in rebate).

    I doubt Kevin M had it first. Maybe a guy named Michael L or Jim B did though.
