Congrats to my Canadian friends on Rogers dropping iPhone and RIM charges...

rogerslogo.jpgHaving lived in Canada for 5 years and dealt with Rogers Communications being really the only GSM game in town, I understood the jubilation yesterday of Canadians like Jim Courtney when Rogers dropped their prices for iPhone plans. Faced with a lot of negative publicity in advance of tomorrow's iPhone launch in Canada... faced with 60,000 people signing an online petition... and facing Apple redirecting some iPhones away from Canada over to Europe... Rogers caved and dropped it's prices.

Even better for Canadians, the price drop is also in effect for Blackberry users!

Jim's post has all the details and pointers.

Go, Canada! (You, too, can now join in iPhone mania... :-)
