That may not be that far from the truth, actually.
I once talked to someone at a Best Buy (yes, I know... a BB employee knowing what he's talking about?
) and they said pretty much the same thing. Samsung doesn't sell anyof their players in Canada at all, and Sony only offers some of theirs, because apparently Apple has too much of a market share here. Everyone else just decided it wasn't worth it and pulled out.
Thanks for sticking around, Sony. At least you got more balls than Samsung Canada does.
