A number of interesting handsets coming to Rogers neighborhood

A number of interesting handsets coming to Rogers neighborhood
A leak of a roadmap for Canadian carrier Rogers shows that the mobile operator has plenty of models to juggle from the current quarter to February of next year.  For example, the BlackBerry Bold 9780 will be offered for $149.99 with the typical Canadian 3 year contract. The Nokia N8, the Finnish based firm's closest competition yet to the Apple iPhone, flavored with Symbian ^3, will be priced at $79.99 with your John Hancock affixed to the dotted line.

Among the more expensive models listed in the roadmap, the Samsung Focus is the North American version of the manufacturer's Omnia 7 with a 4 inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, and sporting a 5MP camera on the rear. It looks like the Samsung Focus will be offered at $199.99, also with a 3 year contract, $599.99 off-contract.. With a signed 3 year pact and $149.99, the Dell Streak will be yours from Rogers while $49.99 and a 3 year contract will buy you the Samsung Ericsson Vivaz pro. Information gleaned from the leak tells us that Rogers will allow the device to qualify for the $10 monthly unlimited data plan that the carrier normally will not allow for smartphones.

There is also speculation inside the carrier that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will get a $299.99 price tag with a 2 year contract and a $199.99 tag with a 3 year deal.

For Canadian cellphone users, the upcoming days look to be beautiful days in Rogers' neighborhood.
