Treo 700wx for Bell Canada
Palm announced today that Canada would receive its first Windows Mobile-based Treo smartphone. Although they have previously received Palm-based Treos and other manufacturers' Windows Mobile devices, Canadians willing to subscribe to Bell Canada only now have access to the Treo 700wx, a newer variant of the 700w that was originially released late last year. The 700wx was first introduced last month through the US carrier Sprint and features double the amount of RAM (64MB) as well as numerous software improvements. Bell Canada users can expect the same EVDO broadband support as their American counterparts. Pricing for the new Treo ranges from $550 CDN with a one-year service to $400 for three years.
