No, Rogers charges the same $199 or $299 as everyone else, with 3 year contracts, and high monthly fees (I'm paying $100+ and it's short on talk time not even unlimited data!)
iPod Touch is a very reasonable alternative if you don't want a phone, or an iPhone (if you prefer a feature phone or even a blackberry).
And when it starts rocking the Skype...

I agree we do not have the best deals for obtaining the Iphone but it isn't all that horrible.
At least we have live in a free country...ok well it is supposed to be free
That freedom gives us the right to go up to the people in the AT&T store and say "F*** you, you piece of ****, I don't want to sign your stupid contract!"
Of course, you might not be able to return to that store.

in singapore, the law prohibit every GSM carrier to lock their handheld. so you can still use your iphone with another GSM carrier. you still have to sign up for a plan, but i heard people who want to buy iphone kinda swap their plan with sum of money to people who wanna sign up a new plan but dont need an iphone..

As far as I know, the local laws here in Malaysia also prohibits handset locking. And with the Official Apple Online Store being launched just last week, we are probably gonna see the same distribution model as Hong Kong (e.g. online sale, officially unlocked) being implemented here. Some say it could be as early as December 2008. Just in time for Christmas!

As odd as it sounds, I would love a data-only Touch -- i.e., an iPhone with without the phone-call capability. Imagine have an always-on data connection over 3G/Edge (depending on location, of course) and the GPS built-in. I would happily pay the $30/mo iPhone data plan to have this type of device. It would make the greatest pocketable internet appliance/ipod/game console. Plus, jailbreak it to run Netshare (or whatever that app was called) and you're carrying a portable wifi hotspot with you at all times!

Did you see "Homeland Security: USA" tonight?
A guy got busted walking across the border from Mexico into the US carrying a couple glass bong "pipes". Nothing in them, not made of anything illegal - just were obviously bongs, and the customs guys weren't having any of it.
