Rogers announces iPad 3G plans coming end of May

Hot on the heals of Apple's international iPad delay, Rogers in Canada also announces that they'll be providing iPad 3G pricing plans at the end of May. And that's pretty much verbatim:

Rogers today announced that it will offer iPad price plans for all models from the end of May in Canada.

It's almost as if this has been coordinated to blunt the impact of the delay by giving international users some small glimmer of additional info, doesn't it? Could it also hint that iPad 3G will be arriving alongside iPad Wi-Fi outside the US? We certainly hope so. We hope even more, however, that Rogers matches AT&T's unlocked, no-contract, cheap data-only plans for iPad.

What's the over/under on that?
