Palm Pre now available in Canada

You’ve waited long enough Canada, and now your time in the sun has finally arrived — the Palm Pre is now available in Canada from Bell. Palm’s first webOS-powered handset is now on sale for $199.95 on a 3-year contact (seriously, Bell, what the hell is the deal with this nickel fetish?). Bell is also willing to sell the Pre to those who fear contracts for $599.95, although contract-free purchasers will still be forced to subscribe to a data plan that has a minimum data bucket of 500MB. So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your nearest Bell dealership, Future Shop, Best Buy, WIRELESS etc., T Booth, Wireless Wave or just hit the read link and get your webOS freak on. You know you wanna.

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

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.”

Future Shops sells BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip for $49.99

Future Shops sells BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip for $49.99

Looks like the rumor of a dirt cheap Rogers BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip from a few months ago was true after all. Despite no official announcement of pricing or release, Canada’s Future Shop has listed the device as for sale “in-store only” for $49 on a 3-year contract. While stores across Canada are reporting that no 8220s are in stock, it is expected that the official go head from Rogers will come soon, possibly as early as Tuesday. At the same time, the recently rumored pink Pearl Flip was also confirmed making the device available in both pink and black. The only question left is whether or not some people at Future Shop are going to lose their job for the continuous stream of pre-announcement sales and leaks they’ve been having over the past year.

Future Shop offers Touch Diamond at $99 as consolation for error

Future Shop offers Touch Diamond at $99 as consolation for error

So many people got excited a few days ago after learning the HTC Touch Pro would be $239.99 with a contract from Future Shop. Well, it turns out there was just a slight error in their pricing and the Touch Pro is really $649.99 without a contract (actually, the Touch Pro was removed from the site completely at the time this post was written). It seems like it was yet to be subsidized at the awesome price listed in the ad and one might think it’s not going that route any time soon. Now, the HTC Touch Diamond and all the bells and whistles is available for $99 with a contract as a consolation prize. All you have to do is use the SKU number they’ve put up and sign your soul over for 3 years and that sweet new Touch Diamond is yours for just a bill (anyone else use “bill” in reference to a hundred dollars or is that just a SoCal thing?).

Thanks John!
