Rogers raises BlackBerry prices

According to BlackBerry News, Rogers is hiking their BlackBerry prices to pay for some $30 million in acquisitions.

BGR reports, ?The price increases saw the Curve 83xx go to $149.99 (up $50), Curve 8900 to $224.99 (up $25) and the Bold go to $299.99 (up $50). While most handset price increases are done after an evaluation of a supply and demand model, it seems that Rogers decided to throw caution to the wind after some senior executives noticed the budget for acquisitions was currently $30 million in the red.?

While most carriers are dropping prices of their phones, Rogers is going in the opposite direction.
