We don’t think we need to go over what an insanely huge day today is for Canada, but in case anyone is feeling particularly thick, we’re going to spell it out plan and simple — Rogers is no longer the only HSPA game in Canada.

So hit the jump and check out what’s new.

Today is shaping up to be the day of the feature phone at the hands of a nationwide carrier conspiracy — or perhaps carriers are just trying to get low end dumb phone announcements out of the way ahead of next week’s hoopla.

Pricing is set at $29.99 after a mail-in rebate on a 2-year contract, placing the 6350 well within reach for just about anyone.
