So Canada! Your Pre is Native Now!
In Canada? Waiting in line? Already got your Pre? Giddy as a schoolgirl? Feeling the sting of a brand new 3 year contract? Is that contract offsetting the joy of not having to hassle with a mail-in rebate? We really, really want to know because we're happy for our Canadian readers (we just wish more of them could feasibly use Bell).
Hit us up in the comments, email your photos into [email protected], let us know what you think!
If you're still on the fence about the Pre, be sure to hit up our insanely comprehensive full Palm Pre Review and Guide. Toronto's Globe and Mail (thanks tipster who for some reason wanted to be Anonymous) has an article up on the launch and why it's good for Bell as a network:
“There's no doubt the Pre will have a positive impact on our market share and there's no doubt the Pre will have a positive impact on ARPU [average revenue per user] because it's so easy to use, so our data revenue will grow,” said Wade Oosterman, president of Bell Mobility and chief brand officer of Bell Canada.
Don't you wish you lived in a world where you didn't know what APRU meant? Also, and we say this gently, why do you think Palm decided to start their Pre launch with two smaller (some might say struggling) networks?
