Bell adding Android, Symbian to HSPA mix
Bell is poised to add Android and Symbian to its stable of HSPA phones through a pair of leaks. Sources tell Electronista that the company should launch the Samsung Galaxy as its first-ever Android phone and will accompany this with the Nokia N97 to add Symbian S60 to the new network. Both should be available as of Thursday the 10th.
Pricing details remain unknown, but it's expected that the designs will closely follow the originals with the exception of North America-friendly 3G frequency support. The Galaxy is an Android 1.5 phone with a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal storage, GPS and Wi-Fi, while the N97 has a 3.5-inch LCD resistive touchscreen, 32GB of storage and features otherwise close to its Samsung rival.
