Question is: do you care?
Good question. 2 weeks ago I cared. Now I'm a proud N1 owner I have no doubt the X10 will be a nice phone. But to get a similar phone without any Rogers locks or branding is worth it alone, not to mentioned the N1 is just better in general.
Wish I could afford an N1.
I agree with you 110% jonno2k!!!!
$149 is a Great Price for this phone.. I know I will be picking one up when it comes out so will some other people I know... I can't see spending $600 for an N1 when I could use that to go on a vacation for a few days..
Wish I had the money to go on vacation for a few days!
With that said, I'll be placing my pre-order for the X10 as soon as Rogers makes it available.
Wait until they discount it. The Magic debuted at $149 and very shortly thereafter went down to $79.99.
Got the pre-order announcement from Rogers about an hour ago. It is indeed $149.99 on a new 3-yr contract, and includes a promo for a free MW600 headset.

Looks like the phone will be available in Rogers Plus stores on April 15th as rumored previously, and existing customers will be able to HUP at that point while also qualifying for a free MW600 if they purchase before April 30th.

From what I can tell there is no pre-ordering for HUPs. Also, I contacted Customer Relations (retentions) and they didn't have any info on the X10 in their system yet, in case anyone needs to go through them (as I do).
Someone over on HoFo stated that it should be available through CR when it's available in-stores, as is usually the case.
Also, I recieved a comment from a Rogers rep via Twitter to "stay tuned" when I asked if there would be an early-HUP offer for existing customers who don't otherwise qualify for a HUP to the X10 yet. Sounds promising.
If you were serious about getting an X10, I would agree with MJSchmidt.
In short, I don't care much about the X10 anymore. I did before the N1 came out and would've also bought the X10 out right. I am 120% done getting into contracts with Rogers or Bell or anybody else.
