Bell Canada gets Mogul in raw HTC 6800 form

HTC 6800 at Bell

Bell Canada has begun carrying the HTC 6800, its custom variant on the original PPC6800 also used as the backbone for the Sprint Mogul. Bell's edition features a radically different front layout with larger front buttons and an easier to hit square directional pad; the carrier's characteristic blue also outlines the phone. Technical features are unchanged but make it one of the most advanced smartphones in Canada, Bell says. The horizontal slider is the first to come equipped with Windows Mobile 6 Professional in the country and preloads Office Mobile and support for the latest features on its 2.8-inch touchscreen.

Its 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, and Wi-Fi support also help its position in the market, although Bell declines to mention whether the 6800's EVDO support will include the Revision A speeds found on Sprint.

The HTC device is available now and sells for $200 Canadian ($192 US) when part of a long three-year contract with data and e-mail use, but can be purchased with lesser terms and goes without any minimum requirement for $600 ($575 US).
