Default new BB for Bell

got some good news for you mikejb, even though the 7100 is anticipated for Bell(unless the rim reps are lying), it won't be until Q3, which doesn't surprise me.. however, the new BB that Bell is getting is the <start drumroll></end drumroll> 7250, which was predicted by i forget who(before we had to revert to the old backup), and i for one am looking forward to it. charm is cool, but i don't mind the reg QWERTY keyboard..

to put some rumors to rest, let me say that there's a sku for the 7250 in Bell's inventory.. which means it's going to be released soon(almost all new handsets get the skus in the inventory before it is actually released by Bell) i am waiting for the little bird to tell me when the official release date for this will actually be.. end of january would be amazing, but you may not want to hold your breath until then.. but let's cross our fingers and wait..

oh, by the way, you don't want the 7790 variant, cuz it's already here, it's called the 7750, heh.
