We’re honestly not sure what to make of this so consider it a rumour for now – but if true it’ll bring incredible joy to those over in Saskatchewan. There were about 15 different email addresses on the complete screenshot and they all checked out correctly. According to what’s written it shows SaskTel will be launching the upcoming HTC “Vivo” and a request has been sent out dealers to order dummy devices.  The doc states that “HTC is the latest addition to our device supplier lineup and the new HTC Vivo device is scheduled for release in April – May.”

The “Vivo” is the code name for the mysterious Android device that surfaced last week that had Verizon branding on it. As for specs, runs Android 2.2 and has a 4-inch Super LCD touchscreen (with a resolution of 480 X 800). That’s all that’s known.

Again… rumour for now. More soon.
(Thanks tipster!)

    WHAT?!
    I’ve always wanted an incredible (1 or 2), and Canada gets it, but on Sasktel :S Wow, would have thought it would be one of the big 3 if at all.

    This looks like a nice phone. I hope Wind comes out with an AWS version of the HTC Vivo. Also, I love Wind with all my heart. <3
    Go Wind Go!!!

    Front looks like an iPod touch but without the home button

    I could see this phone being used on Mobi with good voice quality and improving Data transfer,not on Wind where it would be useless considering the way the network is with instability…Wooooo Hooooo…Go Mobi Go!

    weird, the verizon version is not exactly the same as this one. the curves are more (which I find is nicer, this one looks like a phone with an extended battery cover).

    SaskTel??? is it gonna be on QuebTel as well??

    Bell will be launching this phone toward the end of March or early April.
