With Telus revamping their hardware upgrade program quite some time ago, and Rogers recently following suit, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Bell is doing the same. Telus and Rogers have stepped up to offer early upgrade options for those who can't wait the full 2+ years to get another device at a discounted cost, and Bell's new program is looking similar.

According to recently leaked information, Bell will be making the changes tomorrow, May 22nd. The leaked document shows that "Select clients will have the opportunity to upgrade early by paying a fee on their Bell Mobility monthly invoice." They go on to say that the early upgrade fee will be calculated based on their eligible hardware upgrade date and can be paid either monthly or in one lump sum. Unfortunately the monthly option won't be available at launch, but should be active shortly afterwards. The monthly payment option is unique in Canada for device upgrades, and will hopefully be the center of Bell's focus when marketing this new program.

In addition to early upgrade eligibility being introduced, the document also makes mention of an "Eligible for Special Hardware" option. Basically, select clients will be able to upgrade to a device from a pre-determined list of special hardware. No word yet on what makes a customer eligible for this special early upgrade, but it's bound to have something to do with revenue generated and the type of device you own.

We've seen quite a few new Android devices launch in the last few months, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Telus has officially discontinued the HTC Hero from their product line-up. The handset, which launched along-side Telus' HSPA network, has been available for almost 11 months, and certainly helped popularize the Android platform in Canada. If you're still looking to pick one up, some retail stores may still have limited stock, though it's been removed from online and call center ordering.

Apple has recently made iOS 4.1 available for download to the public, which fixes a number of bugs, and adds a few features to supported devices. The update, which is available in iTunes now, adds Game Center functionality, which is basically an online gaming community for compatible iOS devices, along the lines of Xbox Live or PlayStation Network. Compatible devices include the iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, and the 2nd-4th generation iPod Touch models, and allows users to play games online with friends, family, etc. Along with the introduction of the Game Center, Apple has also updated the App Store to include a specific section just for compatible games, and though the list is currently small, we should see it grow more and more as time progresses.

What do you think about Apple's "Game Center"? Would you be interested in playing mobile games online with others? Let us know in the forums!

Here is the HTC Shift X9501 of Rogers, a device very difficult to describe in one sentence. We can say that the HTC Shift X9501 of Rogers is a UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC). The computer is running Windows Vista Business and can also operate in a very streamlined version of Windows Mobile, appointed SnapVue. The screen, of course touch is very good and the keyboard is very well designed. The HTC Shift X9501 of Rogers does not call, but rather uses the SIM card to provide internet 3G provided in Windows Vista as Windows Mobile and thus enable push mail on Windows Mobile. It is still expensive camera as if you buy at Rogers but it is still affordable at CellEngros.com no contract.
