December 10, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Bell will soon get to boast of its first-ever Android phone, with Samsung attaching its Galaxy smartphone to the carrier’s network. And, this is not all. Bell has gone in for a double whammy by bringing in the Nokia N97 also on to its network.

Thursday was indeed Bell’s day with two smartphones brought under its fold. The Samsung Galaxy, in fact, has given the carrier a place to be noted as it is also the first North America-ready version of the device. An Android 1.5 handset, the Galaxy carries with it 850MHz and 1,900MHz 3G. The Galaxy is a smartphone with a bagful of apps, one among them being the Android Market.

Truly a top of the line Android device, the Galaxy on Bell would bring with it a 5 mega pixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi connectivity and a 480 x 320 AMOLED display. On the storage front is 8GB space tucked along with an optional microSDHC card. The Galaxy on Bell could be yours for a paltry $100, plus a three-year contract. Bell would bring it to you doorstep for a $450, minus the contract.

Meanwhile, the Nokia N97 makes bell the first major North American carrier to adopt the smart device. Besides the 640 x 360 touch display and a 5 mega pixel camera, the N97 boasts of 32GB of internal storage and GPS, Wi-Fi capabilities. Bell attaches the Nokia N97 with a $200 tag for a three-year contract.
