People of Saskatchewan! Today officially marks the day that you can walk into your local SaskTel location and score yourself a new 3G+ device. It’s looking like the SIM card will cost you $10 and they are updating their website with new devices.
Currently they have listed the following: Nokia 7230, Nokia 6350, BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Pearl 9100. So we’re still waiting for them to put the Samsung Gravity 3, Samsung Gravity Touch and the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant.
Pricing is competitive to other carriers. For example the Bold 9700 has a 3-year contract price of $100, so does the 9100. However, the no-contract/monthly prices are a bit inflated.
Regarding coverage, SaskTel says that “coverage is available in Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Yorkton, Swift Current, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Estevan, Buffalo Pound, White City, Melville, Dalmeny, Martensville, Warman, Hepburn, Waldheim and most of the connecting highways”. If your area is not on the list SaskTel has created a 3G+ Rollout schedule so you know when to expect these devices to be available (check it here)
Update: SaskTel is still in talks to bring the new iPhone 4 out, plus the Galaxy S Vibrant will be launching before the end of August.
We’ll updated you soon with other details.
