Rogers stores across Canada are preparing some pretty hefty changes to their plan structure. Basically, Rogers is going all-in with unlimited texting and calling for most of their plans, and differentiating solely on data. Our source says that as part of the changes, Rogers will also be axing their My5 and My10 programs.
In any case, here's a quick tour of what's to come. Overage charges are $15/GB for the first three tiers, $10/GB for the top.
There's a handful of other plans for families or simple talk and text, but those are the big changes. Basically, for a hundred bucks a month, you can get everything. It certainly seems more streamlined and less fussy than previous plans, though there are always the extras like caller ID and voicemail.
We're hearing Rogers will be making these plans public on November 7. Canadians, anyone biting? Is $100/month worth it for all the everything you could need plus a few perks Rogers offers (Anyplace TV, for example), or are you willing to make make a sacrifice on coverage and go with WIND or Mobilicity for half the price? Are Bell and TELUS any more inviting?

Demolition Dash has just made the leap to Android with a launch on the Amazon Appstore. The endless running game puts players in control of Zilla, a monster that has recently awoken from an ancient slumber and is now eager to wreak some havoc in cities across the world. Although Zilla has his Disney-esque charm, there's are plenty of explosions and panicking military personnel to keep the game entertaining for us older folks. Here's a quick run-down of the features.
Having the games locked down to Amazon is a bit of a pain for us international folks, but I'm sure once the exclusivity period is up, we'll see it on Google Play soon enough. Until then, Demolition Dash can be found over here on Amazon for $1.99.
The Next Web reports that as has been widely expected following Apple?s settlement of its trademark dispute with Chinese company Proview, the release of the new iPad in China is now imminent. The Next Web writes that according to a story on Chinese-language blog PC Pop, which was translated via MIC Gadget, a source has revealed that the newest version of the iPad will be released in China on July 27. It is unusual that Apple has taken so long to release this latest version of the iPad in China, and it doesn?t take much of a leap to conclude that Apple was waiting for the court case to be settled, especially as the actual name of the iPad was the reason why Proview was suing Apple. The Next Web notes that given the crowd unrest that occurred in China when the iPhone 4S was launched there, resulting in stores having to be closed early, Apple may well take steps to ensure that the stores are prepared for such scenes this time around.
