GLENTEL Now Taking Orders for Palm Pre from Bell Mobility

Glentel Wireless, WirelessWave, Tbooth / la cabine T and WIRELESS etc to sell Palm Pre August 27

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/04/09 -- GLENTEL today announced that customers can now order the new Palm® Pre(TM) phone exclusively from Bell Mobility. The much anticipated device, which operates on Canada's largest high speed network and is the first phone based on the new Palm® webOS(TM) mobile platform, will be available in GLENTEL stores starting August 27.

"We are delighted to be able to bring our customers the highly anticipated 3G Palm Pre, a Bell Mobility exclusive that delivers an unparalleled user experience. By placing orders now, our customers can ensure they get their hands on this innovative device that promises to be a "must have" smartphone this year," said Cary Skidmore, Vice President of Marketing for GLENTEL.

Palm Pre running on Palm webOS brings together your important information from where it resides - on your phone, at your work or on the web - into one logical view.(1) Palm Synergy(TM), a key feature of Palm webOS, pulls your contacts and calendars from places like Outlook, Google and Facebook, so everything is right there for you when you need it. Palm Pre also lets you flip back and forth between all the things you have open at once-instead of opening and closing them-so you can flow easily between applications without losing your place. The phone's exquisite design includes a touch screen and a physical keyboard that slides out only when needed for fast access to anything on the device or web.

The Palm Pre will cost as little as $199.95 on a three-year contract or $599.95 without a contract with a minimum 500 MB data plan. For more information on the Palm Pre, visit Bell.ca/pre.
