Roadmap for Bell Mobility: Palm Pre, Samsung Omnia, New Curve

It was certainly with a tear in our collective eyes that we bid adieu to Frank and Gordon some time ago, but Bell Mobility still has more than a few things to pique our interest. Taking a look at the next couple of quarters, Bell has quite a few notable smartphones coming down the chute, including the pending launch of the Palm Treo Pro.

That seems to be one of the first phones that we are going to see any time soon, as the current rumored roadmap is pointing toward a February 26th release of the Palm Treo Pro. As you recall, this Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone gets a 320×320 touchscreen, WiFi, and a QWERTY keyboard.

Looking down the chute, we can also expect a new BlackBerry Curve (codenamed Niagara) that will take on a similar form factor and appearance as the current BlackBerry 8900 Curve from Rogers Wireless. That’s set for release in the second quarter, as is the Samsung Omnia with TouchWiz.

Going a little further, the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 hits up the CDMA side of things for Bell some time in late Q2 to early Q3. Around the same time frame, we may also expect the Palm Pre. That’s got to be the hottest “iPhone killer” to date.
