Every summer, we see the major carriers re-launch the $30 6GB data package, typically coinciding with the latest iPhone launch. Rogers and Telus are ahead of the game this year, with internal documents stating that they are each offering it up effective immediately. To get the package, you'll need to sign up for a new 3 year term or renew your current contract, as usual. Additionally, it must be added to a voice plan, and cannot be used as a stand-alone data only package. No word on exactly when the promotion will expire, but as always, you can expect it to be available for a limited time only. We'll likely see Bell follow suit in the near future, as the re-introduction of this plan is usually aligned among the major carriers.

Likely in response to Videotron and Virgin's(Quebec-only) recent introduction of their $30/6GB data package, Telus has gone ahead re-introduced their own 6GB promo add-on for Quebec customers. It's unfortunate that the rest of Canada can't benefit from this recent competition, but it's still great to see carriers working to win customers over in some markets at least.

The 6GB add-on from Telus is available for all device types, including iPhones, and will work for both 4G and CDMA handsets. It is available to new, existing, and renewing customers, and overage charges come in at the standard 5 cents/MB. The package is being offered on a promotional basis only, and will no longer be available after July 31st, so be sure to contact Telus if you're interested in adding it to your line.

Rogers, Bell, and Telus offer up a 6GB data plan seasonally, usually corresponding with each year's iPhone launch, but now Videotron is looking to get in on the competition. They have recently introduced their own 6GB data plan, which is priced at $30 monthly. Unfortunately, the offer is listed as "available for a limited time", so if you're looking for more data usage allowance and are with the popular Quebec carrier, be sure to get ahold of them soon to add it to your account. With any luck, Videotron's introduction of this data package will put the pressure on other major carriers, and they too will re-introduce this type of package. Great job, Videotron!

WIND Mobile has been offering up discount after discount lately, especially with the introduction of more competition by the likes of Videotron and Chatr Wireless, and it seems their latest price reduction comes to the BlackBerry Bold 9700. The handset, which has been dropped by $50 to just $400 is the most notable of the price reductions, though they've also dropped the Samsung Gravity 2, Nokia 5230, Huawei U7519 by $20 each as well. If you're looking to grab a Bold 9700 contract-free and live in a WIND zone, be sure to check them out!

Apple has recently made iOS 4.1 available for download to the public, which fixes a number of bugs, and adds a few features to supported devices. The update, which is available in iTunes now, adds Game Center functionality, which is basically an online gaming community for compatible iOS devices, along the lines of Xbox Live or PlayStation Network. Compatible devices include the iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, and the 2nd-4th generation iPod Touch models, and allows users to play games online with friends, family, etc. Along with the introduction of the Game Center, Apple has also updated the App Store to include a specific section just for compatible games, and though the list is currently small, we should see it grow more and more as time progresses.

What do you think about Apple's "Game Center"? Would you be interested in playing mobile games online with others? Let us know in the forums!

Sasktel recently launched their 3G+ network, and have been in the news quite a bit since the introduction of HSPA speeds in Saskatchewan. They've added to the news, as they've recently confirmed via Twitter that the BlackBerry Torch 9800 will be launching by the end of this month, though no pricing information has been released as of yet. Odds are, 3 year pricing will come in at $199, as with other carries, though their outright prices have been considerably higher than other carriers for other devices, so we expect this one to be the same.
