It looks like actual value is going to be offered to Canadian smartphone users in time for Christmas because Bell is going to match Telus’ amazing $99 smartphone plan. Created in anticipation of large sales of the BlackBerry Storm, both Canadian CDMA-come-HSDPA carriers are offering up plans consisting of the following:

  • 1,000 daytime minutes (unused airtime from Bell rolls over to the next month)
  • Unlimited evenings and weekends after 9pm
  • Call display
  • Voicemail
  • Unlimited SMS
  • Unlimited email and data
  • Unlimited BlackBerry Messenger and IM

To many living outside of Canada these plans might not seem like a lot, but in the pathetically uncompetitive and monopolistic Canadian wireless marketplace this is a huge leap towards progress. Huge!
