Bell becomes the first carrier in Canada to sell the HTC Desire Z

Bell becomes the first carrier in Canada to sell the HTC Desire Z
Canadian consumers now have the opportunity of experiencing all of the wonders that the HTC Desire Z has to offer out of the box. This powerhouse of an Android smartphone boasts the same wonderful and magnificent design seen with the T-Mobile G2 – while offering the full Android 2.2 experience.

All in all, customers who are interested in buying this handset, which is now available through Bell, will need to cough up $129.95 for the handset with a 3-year agreement. If you don't want to be held captive for such an extended amount of time, you could always resort to paying $449 for the 2-year contract term – which is still pretty steep when you think about it more. But ultimately in the end, it's probably better to shell out the full $499 no-contract price for the handset.

Whichever you decide to go with, just know that you're picking up one of the better Android handsets this fall season.

This is an interesting option for AT&T users. According to this phone will work on AT&T. Anyone planning to get this from Bell?

Don't forget that this version also includes Sense UI, not included in T-Mobile's version. Also, most of Bell and Telus' new smartphones, excluding the Palm Pre (and most phones in general) use SIM cards on their 3G networks. So, most of these smartphones are able to be used in America, after unlocking.
