    So I am probably going to get a Pre from Bell probably this weekend. I checked it on Bell's website, and noticed something strange.

    I noticed right under the 3 years* from 199.95 there was "*Pricing details." So I checked this out, and the last sentence is odd.

    It says "Offer ends September 30th, 2009."

    So this makes me think that the Palm Pre is going to cost more (or possibly less) in Canada after the 30th...

    I went to a bell store to check the Pre out a couple of days ago, and I started to get everything sorted out so I can go in and out (with my Pre) quick sometime this week (when I had the cash ). Now I'm not sure if I should wait and see what happens, or get it ASAP in case of price rise or 5 year contract or whatever...

    Heres a pic:

    (Just get rid of the *'s)

    Does anyone have some insight on this?

    Considering the price DROPS in the US, I very seriously doubt Bell is going to jack up rates.

    If anything I would wait a few weeks and see if you can get it cheaper.
    I'm waiting. Actually I'm waiting for a GSM version, but I'd grab a Bell version if it was cheap enough.

    Grrr... you don't need to rub it in.... j/k...

    If I was in the states I would buy one RIGHT THIS MINUTE. Seriously. I'm not kidding.
    I would get in my car, drive to the nearest 24 hour WalMart and buy.

    As a proud Canadian, I don't often say this but right now "I wish I was American"...
    Now excuse me as I go play some hockey, sing the the National anthem and hug a maple tree...


    But seriously
    I HATE the communication industry here in Canada.
    I know you guys tend to ***** about it in the US, but we have only 2 networks up here.
    We have Rogers (GSM) and Bell/Telus. (CDMA) That's it. Since there's no real competition both sides just screw us over as best they can. ARGHHH!!!!

    Sorry, I just tend to rant when I think about it too much.

    We actually have several different "carriers" but since there's only two physical networks, everyone else is just a small local company leasing bandwith.

    Here it is, October 3rd. Bell.ca still lists the pricing plan ending on September 30th. The suspense is killing me...

    Just to let you guys know the price of the PRE for Bell isn't going anywhere for the next month or so. It will stay at the 199.99 price.
