Well the shortage was as predicted. The Rogers plus in Kitchener got 24 units total. 6 were 16GB. the Rogers video outlets got 6 units 2 16GB. In the area there are 7 vide stores meaning they got 42 units, and 3 Plus stores receiving 72 units for a grand total of 114 units for a city population 350,00. Scaling that it seems that Canada received just 10,000 launch day units.
And yes, the activation problems are woeful. The first in line customer was still awaiting activation at 11:00am. uh oh.
