The full handset list, as transcribed by BGR, is here:

* Blackberry 82XX Pearl Flip (3G version of 8220 Pearl Flip but with GPS, WiFi, and video calling)
* Blackberry 9520 Storm (North American 3G GSM bands and 802.11 b/g WiFi)
* HTC Touch 3G
* HTC Touch Pro
* HTC Touch Viva
* Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5
* Motorola Q11

Some prices are still sometime horrific, natch, but this handset selection—which includes the hitherto unheard of 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi Pearl Flip and Wi-Fi Storm handsets—provides some relief for the long, dark winter of the gadget soul that is life in Canada. [HowardForums via BGR]

DISCUSSION

No No No No!! Don't you ever say you want to be involved with that life sucking bitch that is Rogers Communication!

Maybe its just that up here in Canada we do not like our huge corporations, but any company who has the balls to raise something as stupid as caller ID fee's to the level they have is just pure evil! 7 years ago it was $1 a month for caller ID, now with Rogers its $7 a month, and I guarantee the technology and cost to support this service has just gone down...

I'll let this one slide as having had to much eggnog...
