Rogers HTC Dream and Magic to retail for $549.99; 6GB/$30 plan might return alongside nation-wide calling plan

When Rogers Wireless announced it would be carrying both the HTC Dream (G1) and Magic this coming June, the company held back on pricing. Thanks to one of our ninjas however, we found out that both devices are destined to have an off contract price of $549.99. Due to Rogers’ somewhat crazy subsidization system it’s hard to say exactly how much each device will be on contract, but we’re hearing a 3-year contract could be the standard $400 off — or $149.99. We shall see. Hit the jump for an inventory screenshot of the Magic and some more Rogers news.

In other Rogers news, we’re hearing Rogers is toying with the idea of a few plans that include nation-wide calling, although at this point it looks like there is only one plan on the table — 350 minutes, nation-wide evenings and weekends and 1,000 texts for $45. It’s nothing overly impressive and isn’t exactly going to offer much value to anyone (especially those in the eastern time zone) but it’s a start. Slightly more noteworthy however, Rogers is apparently planning to bring back the 6GB/$30 data promotion it introduced alongside the launch of the iPhone 3G last Summer. This will not only help move a lot of third-generation iPhones, but it will also help with every other smartphone including the Dream and Magic.

Thanks, G!
