    You could get the Sony Xperia X Performance for $699.99 from Bell Mobility in Canada. Or you can get it for free, stuck on a two-year contract with an $80 monthly plan. And you can get $100 off that "price" of free with a trade-in. Those who are looking for a little less intensity in their Xperia experience can get an Xperia XA for $349.99 or free on a two-year term with a $35 a month plan. The Xperia X Performance has only been on Bell's shelves for two months. But apparently, the carrier just isn't willing to give Sony phones the boot like what T-Mobile did with the HTC 10. Heck, the ...

    Without Alexander Graham Bell, you would not be sitting at your computer or with your phone reading Pocketnow.com. It was 140 years ago yesterday that the Scottish luminary made the very first phone call from an office in downtown Boston, telling his assistant Thomas Watson: Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you. But from the start, it took a community of wits, craft and a willing investor to pull it all together and make sounds like the one below possible. After moving to Canada for fear of the tuberculosis that killed his two brothers, Bell found a calling from his father, who taught ...

    O, Canada! BlackBerry's home and native land. And if there's any support for the company's devices, it's got to be at the Canadian carriers. So, with the BlackBerry Priv being teased back and forth across the pond, it's good to know that home will be where the heart is. After we just got done telling you that Bell is opening up to the Sony Xperia Z5, we should first tell that it's also working on selling the BlackBerry Priv as well. It's thanks to a poster promoting Bell's Atlantic region LTE-A service. Carrier number 2 for the phone? A Rogers customer has posted his/her pre-order ...

    After some reprimands for some bad corporate behavior, Bell has some good news to share with us this week. It might seem a little topsy-turvy to what the Canadians' counterparts to the south are used to: the US would get first dibs on new, neat things before they do. But as we're expected to get the Xperia Z3+ down here — maybe only online, if soon doesn't come soon enough — ... not this time. Bell will exclusively carry the Sony Xperia Z5 in Canada starting October 29. It's offering a two-contract price, but if you would like to buy a black or white phone outright, say, to take back ...

    Back in 2009, Apple decided to block over a thousand apps from its App Store in one fell swoop. Most of them had previously been tracked by users and journalists as having been astroturfed — review pages painted with extremely positive, poorly written comments from accounts that only seemed to review a certain developer's products. Mind you, we've covered Samsung's positive and negative astroturfing campaigns before. But the most important things an app has is its star rating and reviews. After all, they're put right up in your face before you hit "install." Some of Bell's employees ...

    April is here, and that means that the Sony Xperia Z2, announced back at MWC 2014 in February, is getting ready to go up for sale. Much of our coverage of this phone lately has focused on rumors of delays and shortages, and while Sony has since confirmed that demand for the Z2 is indeed likely to exceed supply, the phone will still be available this month, even if in limited numbers. At least, that's to be the case in the UK; what can we expect from the Z2 over on this side of the pond? That story is slowly coming together, as North American carriers begin preparing to welcome the Xperia ...
