Rogers, Telus both offering paid Android Market apps

For Americans, the ability to blow dollar after hard-earned dollar in the Android Market is old hat -- it's been happening since early last year -- but Canada's had a rougher go of it. Rogers just flipped the switch not long ago, and now Telus has joined the party, meaning most Canadians currently using Android-powered handsets can spend US dollars, euros, or yen to fill up their handsets' internal memory (the Market shows prices in each apps' local currency, and we're not aware of any Canadian apps at the moment). It's long overdue, so we're picturing an epic spending spree this week as these guys blow off some steam -- but hey, there are worse ways to go bankrupt, right?
