It looks like Bell is adding a number of new devices to its lineup. We previously reported that the LG G3 flagship would be making an appearance on August 1st, and that ZTE Grand X would debut on July 31st. Now our sources say that the Alcatel OneTouch 2S is scheduled to launch next week.
Almost eleven months ago, the entry-level BlackBerry Q5 was released in Canada. The device resembled a QWERTY BlackBerry Q10, but sported a plastic body with squared-off corners. With the new wave of BlackBerry devices upon us, it seems that Bell is making space on its shelves, giving the Q5 an “End of Life” notice.
LG declared last week that the new G3 will start arriving at Canadian carriers on August 1st. This new flagship smartphone will be available at Rogers, Bell, MTS, SaskTel and Videotron and Canadians will only see the Metallic Black colour option available at launch.

Wind Mobile and its Chairman, Tony Lacavera, was anticipating such an announcement, claiming it a “significant and important step in encouraging more competition, more choice and more value in the Canadian wireless industry,”
Welcome to the third week of SyrupCast! By now, we’re a lean, mean podcasting machine — except for the fact that each episode has been over an hour. This week, we talk about Android, Android and more Android. Oh, and BlackBerry. And LG. And Bell. Google I/O just ended, but that doesn’t mean we have
Many Canadian carriers charge customers a fee for a SIM card when signing up a new activation, while many others don’t. For example, TELUS started to charge customers $10 for a SIM back in October 2012, and WIND Mobile has priced them at $25 (if you bring your own device). Effective July 3rd, Bell will
The CRTC announced today that the numbers registered with the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) are now permanent.

When BlackBerry unveiled BlackBerry 10 to the world they also brought on Alicia Keys as its Creative Director. That partnership bombed and even saw Keys sport an Apple iPhone and tweet from the device. Prior to this it was revealed that Canadian-born Justin Bieber, who has a massive worldwide following, wanted to be BlackBerry’s brand
