My boss was shopping on the weekend--28.8's are now available (at regular
prices) in the Ottawa area for around $180 (which to get the U.S. price, you
must multiply by .72 per 1.00 so...even cheaper counting exchange)

Electronics are always cheaper in the U.S. than Canada _not_ counting exchange,
so I suspect those of you quoting the high prices haven't been out there
lately. Granted--the drop happened fast, just like it did with 14.4's. Check it
out--it may be worth it. (And I hear that the Internet browsers really improve
in performance the faster your modem.)
