With HP officially announcing the new Palm Pre 2 yesterday they stated that it will be available in Canada “in the coming months”. Other carriers were announced such as Verizon in the United States and even SFR in France will be the first to launch this on Friday. No Canadian carrier was listed. However, if you take a look into the source code on the Canadian section of the Palm Pre 2 it reveals that “The Palm Pre2 phone is available on the Rodger’s network”. Even though it’s spelled incorrectly it’s a good indication that Rogers Wireless will be taking a crack at the newest version of the Palm Pre.

    Who is Rodgers? ha. Perhaps you mean Rogers? (I’m just being a smart a*s)

    This is a very interesting device. If the build quality is higher then the original Pre, it could be a great phone to have as long as the price is LOW, which is where it SHOULD be.

    Will see if Rogers will have to cost $15/month off the monthly bill to sell this device, just like Bell did we the original Pre.

    • Andy C

      Bell discounted the monthly plan because the original device, just like the original company are obsolete.

      its seems like a interesting device. if the build quality and screen size were upgrades from the original i could be compelled to pick one up. sadly they are not

      now if i can only find a Rodger’s sim card….

      Think about it. Even if this device was as good as other high end phones (which I doubt), it still starts with two strikes, just like the original Pre, because there are no apps for WebOS and it is unlikely to change.
      Palm need to have a superior device (1.5 GHz, 1GB RAM) or a much lower price.

    Wow, I can’t wait. Another sub-standard device. Stop behaving like a discount carrier Rogers and start focusing on some more high end devices…i.e. HTC Desire HD, Motorola Droid 2, etc.

      HTC Desire HD is on the AWS 1700Mhz and Droid 2 is CDMA. Maybe you should b***h at the manufacturers ?

    • zorxd

      Desire HD is not AWS (1700 MHz). It is 900/2100 MHz.
      Droid 2 is CDMA, yes. Just like the original Droid. It didn’t stop us from receiving the Milestone.
