Android phones are becoming available far and wide, and LG is in the game with their Android-powered GW620 “Eve” on the Rogers network. Although the Rogers site lists the phone as an out-of-stock item, we hope this will change very soon as they stock their shelves.
The Eve can be yours for a contract price of only $49.99, but if long-term commitments aren’t your thing, then you can have it outright for $399.99. Here are the features you can expect from the GW620 Eve: 3-inch touchscreen display with 480 x 320 resolution, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, accelerometer, 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, video recording, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA connectivity support, 2GB microSD card included, and a full slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard.
If you’re on the Rogers network, does the Eve appeal to your sensibilities?

If you’re up in Canada and want some screaming deals for some hot Android handsets, Rogers has a barn-burner deal going on with their HTC Dream and Magic phones. At this time, Rogers is selling the Dream (T-Mobile G1) and Magic (T-Mobile myTouch 3G) for only $79.99 CAD. There’s a catch, of course – if you want the $79.99 price, then get ready to marry Rogers for three years. If you don’t have a problem with this kind of commitment, then strike while the iron is hot and get a sweet Android handset for a pauper’s price. We can only hope that this kind of pricing makes it’s way south of the border.

How much is a year worth for having an Android-powered HTC Dream or Magic with Rogers in Canada? Try a cool $300 CAD – that’s the difference between a two or three year contract. On June 2, when these two new handsets are ready to roll out at Best Buy (and other fine retailers), you can allegedly have your Dream or Magic for as low as $149.99 CAD (!) with a whopping 3-year contract and minimum $45 voice and data plan. If you settle for 2 years, the price jumps up to $449.99, 1 year for $499.99, and no contract pricing is available for a mere $599.99 CAD.
If you’re willing to sell your soul (for the 3-year maximum), $149.99 is dirt cheap for getting your little green ‘droid groove going. We hope that the photographic evidence of Best Buy pricing is true, but don’t count on it completely until you are standing in the store and handing over your cash (or plastic). If you live in Canada, will you be venturing to Best Buy to pick up your Dream or Magic? If so, how much lighter will YOUR wallet or purse be?
