We're seeing Canadian companies take advantage of smartphones and popular mobile platforms more and more, and it's nice to see UPS Canada joining in. The UPS application is now available for free on Android and BlackBerry, through either Market or App World. If you're someone who ships or receives a number of items via UPS, this app is great as it allows you to track packages, find UPS locations, and get quotes. Those with UPS accounts can also create shipments and send themselves shipping labels via e-mail for printing once on a computer.

Just a few days ago, Research in Motion and Sprint in the U.S. officially announced the BlackBerry Style 9670 - a CDMA flip phone that offers up a full QWERTY keyboard, and shortly afterwards Telus confirmed that they too, would carry the device. While no official availability or pricing has been announced, it's rumoured that they will be launching the device sometime within the first few days of November. The BlackBerry Style will launch running BlackBerry 6 OS, and features an external display for your clock and notifications, along with a standard internal display. Also featuring a 5MP camera with video capture capabilities, the Style 9670 comes with 512MB of RAM and has storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD. While the design of this new device definitely brings some back to a few years ago, it's certainly nice to see an array of options coming to Canadian mobile consumers!

WIND Mobile has launched yet another promotion to entice customers to make the switch, this time by offering up a rebate on device purchases of either $20 or $40 depending on the handset. With the discount, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 is now just $430, and the recently introduced, Android-powered Huawei U8100 is down to $140. Fine print for the offer reveals that the rebate will be mailed to you in cheque form within 10-12 weeks of purchasing the handset, and that you must cash it within 90 days of being issued or it is rendered void, but savings are still savings and should be taken advantage of if you're in the market for a new device from WIND Mobile.

<< Supports Bell's strategy to accelerate wireless and leverage momentum in digital television, high-speed Internet and home phone services Adds more than 750 stores across Canada to Bell's national distribution network >>

MONTREAL, Quebec, March 2 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced it has agreed to acquire national consumer electronics retailer The Source to further enhance the growth of Bell's wireless, digital TV, Internet and home phone services.

"The Source is a respected leader in consumer electronics retailing right across Canada. Its acquisition supports Bell's strategic imperatives to accelerate wireless and leverage momentum in wireline services like Bell TV, Bell Internet and Bell Home Phone," said George Cope, President and CEO of Bell and BCE.

"With its strong national presence, brand, and management team, acquiring The Source represents a competitive and cost-effective approach to ensuring Bell's leadership in delivering the best communications products to Canadians," Mr. Cope said. "Expanding the number of places people can buy Bell products is a core element in the execution of Bell's strategy to achieve our goal: To be recognized by customers as Canada's leading communications company."

In addition to its extensive lineup of consumer electronics products, The Source plans to carry the full array of Bell consumer services at its more than 750 stores across Canada, including Bell Mobility, Solo Mobile and potentially Virgin Mobile wireless products and services, Bell TV's industry-leading High Definition television services, high-speed Bell Internet, and Bell Home Phone products, by January 2010.

The Source will continue to operate independently from Bell following its acquisition and will maintain its well-known national brand, broad range of communications, computing and audio products, and its seasoned management team to be led by Ron Cuthbertson, a respected 30-year retail veteran and most recently President of The Source.

"The Source's new relationship with Bell will make the most of the combined strengths of both organizations in terms of products, service and national brand strength," said Mr. Cuthbertson. "Combining Bell's industry-leading roster of communications services with the brand, distribution presence, and consumer retailing expertise of The Source will contribute positively to the long-term growth of both businesses going forward."

The Source has a track record of profitability over the past seven years. LTM (latest twelve month) revenue as of December 31, 2008 was approximately $643 million while LTM EBITDA(1) (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was approximately $27 million for the same period.

The acquisition of The Source and its more than 750 retail stores, most of them in high-traffic mall locations, is a faster and more cost-effective approach to increasing Bell's national distribution footprint than building out new retail locations. More than 70% of Canadians live within five kilometres of stores operated or licensed by The Source, and more than 80 million technology-savvy consumers shop at The Source each year.

Bell is acquiring substantially all of the assets of The Source, which was acquired by Circuit City Stores, Inc. in March 2004. On November 10, 2008, Circuit City and certain of its U.S. subsidiaries voluntarily commenced bankruptcy proceedings under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code and The Source commenced a voluntary proceeding under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA). Bell is acquiring The Source pursuant to the court monitored sale process being managed by NM Rothschild & Sons Canada Ltd. in connection with the proceedings under the CCAA.

Subject to court approval and other customary conditions to closing, the transaction is expected to close in Q3 2009. Due to the nature of the sale process and at the request of The Source, Bell does not expect to disclose the purchase price until after the completion of the transaction.
