Actually - all BB Rogers plans work on all devices, including non-BB devices.
(The only exception is the $15 email-only plan, which blocks the internet.com APN)
Even the grandfathered Rogers BlackBerry 25MB for $60 plan works fine in a TREO, if you move the simcard to a TREO. No extra charges. Since around 2005, Rogers stopped distinguishing on BlackBerry SIM cards, so you can use a Rogers BlackBerry SIM card in any device.
Basically, Rogers BB plan is a superset of a Rogers generic data plan. Or another way of looking at it, Rogers BlackBerry SIM cards behave like generic data cards that just has special bonus of a BlackBerry account provisioned onto it.
Thankfully -- with the new $30/300MB and $60/1GB or the $50 flexrate plan on Rogers, pricing is finally getting better and now it's feasible to plug the BlackBerry SIM card into a laptop card or iPhone, if you wanted to -- it works fine (tested).
