I wonder...

...how many units they're selling. Being from Toronto, I know Bell isn't exactly the go-to company for the "young, hip" crowd Palm is targeting with the Centro. In any case, it can't hurt to have the Centro on both a GSM and CDMA network in Canada. They'll need all the revenue they can muster to make it through to the Pre's release.
