HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D

With Rogers not yet letting the devices out the door and still only taking pre-orders, Best Buy in Canada should be raking in some of those sales for anyone interested in picking up either a HTC EVO 3D or LG Optimus 3D for Rogers. Best Buy now has both devices in store with pricing even cheaper then Rogers. The HTC EVO 3D retails for $99 with a new three-year contract while the LG Optimus 3D retails for $49 under the same terms. (That's $50 cheaper then Rogers for either.) Anyone going to be grabbing either of these?

But more on topic... I wonder if this is the same as the price change on the Infuse 4G. I went in store and the $99 only applied to brand new contracts, not upgrades. If this applied to upgrades that would be great. I will see if my store has stock and pop in to see if I prefer this or the Infuse.

Anybody who picked up the evo 3d, does it have an unlocked bootloader? If I remember right, there was an article awhile back where Rogers was saying it would ship with an unlocked bootloader.

I'm sorry, but this is becoming a problem. I've seen it on the internet so many times, but I have never seen an error such as this from a member of the team here...

"Best Buy now has both devices in store with pricing even cheaper then Rogers."

"(That's $50 cheaper then Rogers for either."

Please learn the difference between then and than! I know they are homophones (they really aren't, but most people don't enunciate well enough), but anyone who has graduated primary school should know the difference.
