Rogers Roadmap Leak

Canadian cell provider Rogers Wireless will put most of its emphasis in the next few weeks on the BlackBerry line and music phones, according to a roadmap slip from BGR. The details confirm the launch of the BlackBerry Kickstart and add that the device will work with Rogers' Home Calling Zone Wi-Fi phone service, which will be rechristened Talkspot. The EDGE-only flip smartphone hasn't been given pricing but has previously been slotted into a late September release that may arrive near that of T-Mobile USA's version.

The outline also has Rogers carrying its own version of the Motorola ROKR E8 touch-sensitive music phone for $100 on a three-year plan. The carrier also plans to offer two Sony Ericsson Walkman phones that include the mid-range W760i slider and the retro-styled W350a flip phone; these will sell for $80 and $30 respectively on similar terms as the ROKR. A final addition, the Samsung t336, will be available for $50 and may be a relative of the t339 for T-Mobile.
