Palm Pre gets Canada launch date
Canadian mobile network operator Bell Mobility will be getting the Palm Pre on August 27.
In May, Palm Inc. announced that it would be bringing its flagship touchphone to Bell Mobility "in the second half of 2009" with no specific date.
Today, in response to the "tens of thousands of Canadians" who signed up for information about the Palm Pre, Bell announced that the device is now available for reserve.
"Considering the highly successful US introduction of the Palm Pre by Sprint in June and fast-growing Palm Pre buzz among Canadian mobile users, Bell and our retail partners are preparing for high demand for this breakthrough phone,"
Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Chief Brand Officer for Bell said today.
With a three year contract, Bell Mobility's Palm Pre will cost $199.95 and will ship free of charge on August 27.
