It looks like Fido’s corporate security team isn’t having its best month because someone aptly nicknamed “FidoMarketing” has leaked the details of its Q2 handset and price plans. There’s not a heck of a lot of exciting things here, although the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 is listed and is apparently coming very soon:

  • BlackBerry Pearl 9100 – May 4th
  • LG GW300 – April 13th
  • Nokia 3710 – May 18th
  • Nokia X3 – May 18th
  • Novatel Wireless MC988DF – May (singled out for being 28.8Mbps, a sign of things to come to Fido/Rogers no doubt)
  • Sony Ericsson Aspen – June

In terms of plans, Fido is still struggling to find its identity. It has really cheap handsets, yet the plans that go along with them are pretty mediocre for Canadian standards. FidoUNO, Fido’s UMA service, will be decommissioned as of June 1st, but a new CarryOver Minutes plan (not available to City Fido or corporate customers) will be introduced which allows one to accumulate rollover minutes over 6 moths. Data plans will also get a bit of a change with news plans with the introduction of Wireless Internet Options. Basically what it all boils down to according to the documents is this:

  • $15 – Unlimited Email and IM
  • $15 – 100MB/100MB BIS
  • $25 – 500MB/500MB BIS
  • $30 – 1GB/1GB BIS
  • $40 – 2GB/2GB BIS
  • $40 – 3GB
  • $50 – 5GB
  • $50 – 15GB [sic]
  • $80 – 8GB
  • $150 – 15GB

Be honest, people. What are you thinking?
