Rogers iPad Pricing not so great

If you are in the Great White North then you are probably used to Rogers giving its users the run-around in regards to Apple pricing. First off, the products up there are simply more expensive... prices are higher, taxes are higher. That's bad enough, but what about when your only viable carrier choice decides to raise the prices on you above and beyond what your brothers in the US pay?

That's kicking a man when he's down, and it appears that just like Rogers release of the iPhone - Rogers will now charge more for the iPad data prices then AT&T will... by far.

The CBC has a great article that our Canadian readers might be interested in:

Plans here are five bucks a DAY! Too bad Apple doesn't have the bargaining power internationally as they do in the USA.

It's ridiculous that carriers can manipulate consumers into paying a high price for the same product, whether it's the wireless service or the product itself.

Unfortunately, with the product, you will run into a higher cost simply because of exportation taxes - and you know Apple isn't going to foot that bill! I don't understand why cellular carriers feel it's okay to rip people off for any service - don't they want repeat customers and customers who will refer their friends?

I guess if you're the one with the ball, you make the rules.
