as a CDMA carrier, I've come to expect a year delay of new products. But since Bold was in dev for over 3 years, has anyone heard if this Canadian carrier might get the product sooner than that?
Bell Mobility is stuck with their CDMA network and will never get the option of a Bold Device until they upgrade to dual standards on their network.
Hence, Rogers was first to market with a 'world phone' and Bell followed over 2 years later. They 'bet' on the wrong standard and lost.
While Rogers is pretty much a monopoly (at least in behaviour and pricing), Bell wrote that book.
