    not sure what the big deal about this device is, data rates in Canada especially with Rogers Wireless are extremely expensive. I've had a Treo 650 for a while and I rarely use any data. To give you an example Rogers charges $100 a month for 100MB of data and I think that might only be with blackberry.

    I totally agree! Having just upgraded to wm6 on an unlocked 750v, I was trying the internet and email speeds and lo and behold, before I could stop incoming messages, it was already in my inbox. The 3G speed was much faster than Edge, but it cost me over C$70 just for downloading the headlines. Never again will I turn on my email unless I need to check my mail urgently!
    I think Canadians are less fortunate than Americans in that telecom providers do not need to face that many competitors like in the US. The 3 big providers here are operating in a near monopoly state, so they can charge at will and maximize profits!
