It still amazes me that our friends up north are actually willing to sign on the dotted line for three years.

Monopolization at it's finest. The big three have the best reception anywhere that's not a metropolis because they have the government in their pocket and essentially make it impossible for any smaller companies (Wind, Mobilicity, etc) to get spectrum of their own to extend in fringe areas. So they are relegated to non-GSM spectrum which limits their phone choice. Because of this, the big three can keep 3 year contracts and ratchet the prices skyward and still have people come back, present company included. :(

On a side note, I definitely want to try out the 900 :) the only thing that causes me to pause is the single core processor. Once MS adds dual core support, this may become obsolete immediately.

Canada needs more competition to bring down the price & contract length
