they are just trying to be generous for holidays, or just get rid
of some of their devices that haven’t been selling too well, I
don’t know – but it looks like Bell is dropping the prices of Palm
Pre and Motorola Dext down to $149.95, contract-free. The Bell
Mobility Motorola Dext runs on the oldest version of Android around
– 1.5 – and you don’t expect any other updates for it. It runs
Motorola’s blur skin on top. It has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard,
5MP camera, and Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. It comes
with a 2GB microSD card, but can hold up to 32GB for additional
memory. The Bell Mobility Palm Pre is a CDMA device that comes with
the beautiful WebOS and it features a 3.1″ (320×480) touch screen
display, slide out QWERTY keyboard, a 3MP camera, Wi-Fi,
bluetooth, and GPS. It also comes with 8GB of internal memory, and
has a 3.5 mm headset jack. If you’re interested in other Android
phones, you can get Samsung Vibrant, HTC Desire Z for $75 less
until December 31st, and you can also get LG Optimus for free – all
with a 3 year contract.
It looks like Canadians no longer have to wait for hot smartphones to be available on their favorite networks. While RIM phones have been a given for Canadians, Android smartphones didn’t come to Canada until this year, and that happened pretty slowly.
Microsoft wants to make a big splash with its new mobile operating system “Windows Phone 7”, and so the Windows Phone 7 devices will appear on as many networks as possible, early on. Bell is one of these networks, and it will get its first WP7 phone – the LG Optimus Quantum – on November 2nd.
An error in Bell’s charging system for texts has led to overcharging every customer who had an unlimited plan. The system started charging customers with unlimited plans with 75 cents per message, in the interval between September 21st and 25th.
