Palm and Bell Mobility have been teasing our Canadian cousins for weeks now, but the webOS smartphone has finally arrived.  The Bell Palm Pre is priced at CA$199.95 with a new three-year contract, and delivers the same EVDO Rev.A connectivity, slide-out QWERTY keyboard and capacitive touchscreen as the Sprint US model.

Both online and in-store orders are possible, and Bell will be showcasing the Pre at the Eaton Centre in Toronto through September 5th, complete with running daily giveaways.  Meanwhile voice/message/data plans start from CA$45 per month (with a 500MB allowance), though you'll need to step up to at least CA$60 per month if you want unlimited data.

The launch coincides with the addition of several new webOS applications to the Palm App Catalog, including the Yelp restaurant guide, a language update for Twitter app Tweed, and a Canadian news app.  There are also some new games, including Tetris Mania and Yahtzee.
