Bell Canada to get Pre Within Two Weeks?

Rédigé par Jason Robitaille le Mardi 21 Juillet 2009

The wait for the Palm Pre in Canada continues. The latest is that MobileSyrup snagged an internal document showing that Bell employees have began their training on the Pre and will continue to train throughout the month.

Good news, that, but our understanding is that the hold up for Bell isn't training, it's inventory.  Palm won't release to Bell until they're confident they're meeting demand with Sprint.  How goes that?  Well, recently in HowardForums, a user named Profets posted:

just came to post some news i heard from inside.. and that they're preparing for a public launch of the Pre on friday/saturday of July 31/Aug1. but a lot of the time they keep referring to August 1 as the official launch date. Or at least what they're preparing for unless some kind of delays occur

Sounds like another one of those friend-of-a-friend rumors, right? Maybe not.  A few posts later user MacD posts:

My sources state a release date between July 29th and July 31st, which would make sense to me.

That brings some credibility to the rumor.  MacD, for those who don't know, was the user who leaked all the Blackberry Storm release information and has a knack for being right about these things.

And yes, it does seem to contradict our earlier speculation of a September 1st release and it does seem to be coming awfully quickly.  Then again, competing carrier Roger's has a data plan promo ($30/6GB) which ends on July 31st, perfect timing for Bell to impress those data hungry folk with the latest and greatest.

Just a reminder, you can still enter Bell's Palm Pre contest on this page.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
