For those of you in The Great White North that are looking for an Android device but don't like the idea of a three-year commitment (yes, it takes a three-year contract to get the phone for $199.99), the cost of entry has been increased. Boy Genius reports that the G1, or Dream, is set to drop on June 2nd for $649.99 outright. Ouch. Supplies will be but a trickle at the start, but more can be expected on June 12th.

This post, also by Boy Genius, says that the prices for Magic are identical - making the hardware keyboard and form the factors of decision. That post also says the terms are "Not bad for the first Android handsets to land north of the border." I think I'm gonna have to disagree with BGR there. Seems a bit steep to me, at least for the G1.

Lastly (I think) Engadget has announced that the Canadian Dream and Magic will *not* be "with Google" phones - and that means Exchange support. So for those looking for and Android device to use in the office, maybe the tag won't be too off-putting.
