Good news for Canadians who have been so patiently waiting for news as to which carrier will be offering the Palm Pre — Bell has announced that it will be offering Palm’s first WebOS powered device some time in the second half of 2009. As one would expect, both Bell and Palm are not offering up any specific pricing details or a release time-frame other than 2H. Of particular interest in the press release is the language that Bell used as it noted that the Pre “will debut in Canada exclusively on Bell”, language that could indicate it will not be the sole carrier. Could it be that TELUS will eventually be offering the Pre as well? Or is the mysterious GSM version of the Pre headed to Rogers? Time will tell, but for now we’re content enough with the fact that Canadians finally know where they need to be to get their Pre fix asap.
