The main criteria these days for who launches a new blackberry first is quite simple, how big an order will you put in and thats why the first (or only one) to launch stuff always tends to be att or verizon in the states or due to their global size t-mobile or vodafone.
What haven't rogers launched that would have worked on their network?
Looking on their site the only ones that spring to mind is the 8520 which probably isn't a priority since they already sell the older curves and the 8900. The only other possible would seem to be the storm and the gsm version of that seemed to be a vodafone-exclusive so it would have been out of rogers' hands anyway.
