A little while back, we saw Videotron launch a $30/6GB data add-on, and it didn't take long for a variety of other carriers to follow suit in the province. Bell and Virgin Mobile began offering their Quebec subscribers the same package, and Telus also did the same. Now, Rogers is responding to the competition, and has also made their own $30/6GB add-on available for Quebec customers. Theirs, like the others, is available for a "limited time", and speculation points to a July 31st expiry date. It includes 6GB of data usage and unlimited Social Networking, and requires you to renew on a new 3 year term.

HTC has just announced two new Android devices that will be hitting the European and Asian markets in Q2 2011, and the U.S. later in the year. The HTC ChaCha and Salsa both feature dedicated Facebook buttons, allowing users to access the popular social networking site with a single click of the button. It will also allow for speedy status updates, simple sharing, and quick photo uploads. No word yet on if or when these handsets will arrive in Canada, but we should see them around the same time that the U.S. does.

The ChaCha features a physical QWERTY keyboard located under the 2.6" (480x320) display, along with a 5MP camera with LED flash, and a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The Salsa has similar specifications, but has a larger touchscreen (3.4") and lacks the physical keyboard. Both devices will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will be powered by 600MHz proccessors.
