Maybe the new HSPA network is coming soon than we think! Perhaps they want customers or potential customers to flock to the Palm Pre, but Bell has dramatically increased the prices of some (almost all) of their devices.
For example, the BlackBerry Storm was originally priced at $249.95 on a 3-year term, then we saw a promo price drop all the way down to a low $99.95. However, today it’s priced at the highest ever at a cool $299.95.
The fun continues for the BlackBerry Tour 9630. Even though Bell is putting in strong efforts to sell against Rogers BlackBerry 890, they have increased the price to $299.95 on a 3-year contract. This was originally launched at $249.95 way back in the middle of July.
Want more? How about getting the recently launched LG Bliss for a sweet $99.95 on a 3-year? This was launched at $79.95 a month ago. Or how about the BlackBerry Pearl Flip now priced at an unbelievable $99.95 on a 3-year (released at $29.95 last February).
Ouch. You know things are up when the entry level Samsung m530 gets a price jump. This was just released in Black on August 28th for $19.95 on a 3-year contract, but only after a couple weeks you can now get this for a stellar $39.95.
I’m sure there’s more, such as the LG Rumour 2 now $49.95, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 now $149.95. Thankfully the Samsung Cleo remains at $0.00.
