Palm Pre Takes Off, Eh?

bobanddougpreThe Palm (PALM) Pre is finally taking off in the Great White North.

Canada’s Bell Mobility, which became the device’s exclusive Canadian carrier back in May, this morning announced a ship date and price for the Pre. It is scheduled to go on sale Aug. 27 at a price of $599.95 without a contract and $199.95 with a three-year contract.

“We’re very excited to bring the revolutionary Palm Pre and the Palm webOS mobile platform to Canadians exclusively on Bell’s national wireless network–the largest high-speed 3G network in Canada,” Wade Oosterman, president of Bell Mobility and chief brand officer for Bell, said in a gushing statement.

“Considering the highly successful US introduction of the Palm Pre by Sprint in June and fast-growing Palm Pre buzz among Canadian mobile users,” Oosterman added, “Bell and our retail partners are preparing for high demand for this breakthrough phone.”
