UPDATED: Bell to launch the Palm Pre on August 27th?

The last time we heard anything having to do with a release time frame for Bell’s Palm Pre, early August appeared to be the target — pending adequate levels of inventory of course. With sales of the Pre having peaked long ago south of the border, it looked as if Canadians could indeed be looking at an imminent launch. But then along comes big box electronic retailer Future Shop to spoil the hopes and dreams of many by posting up a pre-order teaser site for the Pre which lists August 27th as the release date. There’s no way to say for sure whether or not this date is just for Future Shop or all Bell dealerships and retailers, but something tells us it’ll be a few weeks yet until Canadians get their first taste of webOS.

UPDATE: And now it’s official. The Palm Pre will launch on August 27th for $199.95 on a 3-year contract or $599.95 off contract “with a minimum 500 MB data plan.”
