Getting BB data service on an "a la carte" basis is possible with Rogers (and any other carrier for that matter)
here's the kicker tho...... when it comes to data devices, to get the price you see (which is usually on a 3 yr term), you must have a MIN $80 monthly service fee. Whether that be Voice only (ALOT of Minutes.. :P), Data Only, or a voice and Data combo.
basically what I'm getting at here, is that you can pick up the 8800, put a nice voice package on there, then turn around and add your data option on AFTER you've signed the contract. but you'll look at paying ALMOST retail for the device. Now since that unit isn't officially launched yet, I'm in no position to relay any pricing. but i hope that solves your issue.
just too add to that, if you do decide to get the BB 8800 on voice only and pay almost full retail, your almost better off to buy the device outright then go on a Blackberry Voice and Data plan on a Month to Month basis, because with Voice and Data bundled together it will save you a bit of money (depending on your data usage), and it will give you an 8pm evenings and weekends start time, rather than the 9pm time that comes with the tradtional "Mega Time" plans. (now of course that can be dropped to 6pm, or even 5pm for an extra monthly fee.
