Great news if you’re a Canadian and on the Rogers network, because today you can reserve your next Windows Phone. Just log into the Rogers portal and select Account Info and then Device Reservation, then pick your new phone and site back and wait for it to ship! No line ups, no fuss, just relax and wait for it to arrive.
Rogers has a great selection of Windows Phones for you to pick from – Samsung ATIV S, Nokia Lumia 920, or the 8X by HTC with either 8GB or 16GB of storage. They are also carrying the new Windows 8 Samsung ATIV Smart PC, although this is not available in the reservation system. There is a limit of 1 device per customer, so you can just reserve them all. Also you have to put down a $40 deposit, but this goes toward the price of the phone, so it’s no big deal.
The down side is that you can only use the Rogers Reservation System if you are already a Rogers customer. So if you’re looking to switch to Rogers, then you’re out of luck and you need wait for the product to arrive in stores.
Also in today’s announcement, Rogers has announced they will be bringing Anyplace TV Live to Windows Phone 8, and Anyplace TV On Demand to Windows 8, and the Rogers One Number will be available on both platforms. No pricing or availability dates where mentioned. I imagine those will be coming soon!
