Android arrived in Canada yesterday via the new HTC Dream and HTC Magic. Both phones are available immediately through Rogers Wireless, with pricing starting at $149.99 with a three-year contract. Rogers is offering a $30 6GB monthly data plan for those who purchase one of the two phones before July 1, 2009.

There are 3,200 apps currently available for Google’s mobile platform through the Android Market.
