Staying Competitive

$22/month
100 anytime minutes
unlimited evening a weekends (evenings: 7pm-7am, sat/sun: all day)

Add $11/month for call display and voicemail throw in your Provincial Tax and the 5% G.S.T. and you have got yourself a decent plan on a low budget.

HTC Dream, Magic Android powered phones launch

dreamopened

Today Rogers is launching the Android powered HTC Dream and Magic. I had a chance to play with both of them and was very impressed. Not just because it’s something new to try but because they seem to work well.

Both will cost $149.99 on a 3 year if you have a plan with a minimum monthly fee of $45. Rogers is also bringing back the $30/6GB plans for these devices until July 1st 2009.

Here’s the goods:

  • Full suite of Google applications including Google search, Gmail, Google Talk, Google Apps and YouTube
  • Android Market (an app store)
  • Quad band GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900Mhz
  • Dual band HSDPA 850/1900Mhz, 7.2Mbps
  • 3.2″ 320×480 LCD with capacitive touch screen (no stylus needed)
  • Gmail and Exchange support both with push
  • IMAP and POP3 email support
  • 3.2MP camera
  • Bluetooth, WiFi
  • Micro SDHC card slot
  • Both use a mini USB connector located at the bottom for charging and headphones. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack

dreamprofile

The Dream has a slick pop out keyboard, 1150mAh battery and 256MB RAM with a Qualcomm MSM 7200 528Mhz processor.
