Bell says Palm Pre has “unprecedented demand”

palmpreimageWith the Palm Pre now only a mere 7 days away from launching in Canada, proudly the second country in the world to do this. Claire Gillies, director of marketing at Bell Mobility, says “We’ve seen unprecedented demand on our Web site. The list grows every day as we approach launch.”

We’ve noted in the past that the Pre is “the most important launch in Bell’s history“. It could be a possibility that those wanting and patiently waiting for iPhone 3GS stock to arrive might transition over to the Pre? Only time will tell.

Kevin Restivo, senior research analyst at IDC Canada said “Palm needs to be able to satisfy that initial demand to gain market share. Palm is coming to market with the Pre when people are adopting smartphones en masse. It’s a rising tide that lifts all ships.”
