Palm Pre Coming to Canada's Bell Mobility
"Bell is excited to be only the second carrier in the world to announce the 3G Pre," said Adel Bazerghi, senior vice president of Products for Bell Mobility. "With the unique user experience of the world's first webOS phone, running on the country's largest 3G network, we're confident that Canadians will embrace Pre as the phone for their lives today."
"We're excited to bring Pre to Canada with Bell Mobility," said Brodie Keast, senior vice president of marketing for Palm, Inc. "We've seen enormous interest from mobile operators worldwide and fully expect to continue to expand distribution for Pre, putting it within reach of more and more customers."
This has been a busy week so far for Pre-related availability announcements, what with today's Bell Mobility CDMA announcement and Tuesday's rumor that Telstra will offer the Pre this August in the Australian market, presumably in GSM flavor.
Palm Pre is scheduled to be available in Canada exclusively from Bell Mobility in the second half of 2009. Bell Mobility's pricing for the phone has not yet been determined. Bell has setup a dedicated page with more Pre info and a email signup.
