Apple tells Canadian phone company to get stuffed

for the new Apple iPhone 3G given the obscene fees Rogers is demanding.

Canadian Apple Retail stores won’t be selling the new 3G touchscreen phones come Friday, representatives for the Cupertino-based company said during a private conference call on Monday evening. Instead, it will be up to Rogers and its partner Fido to lock subscribers into steep 3-year contracts that require a minimum monthly payment of $60 for just 150 minutes, 75 text messages, and 400MB of data.

You’d kind of think they would have talked about rates before they did the deal, no?
