Default Bell S3 Discontinued?

I was checking out the S3 on different carriers, when I noticed that Bell has removed the S3 information page from their website, as well as making it not available for purchase. Any links pointing to the S3 on Bell are dead. I'm wondering if this could point towards an imminent launch of the Galaxy S3?

The Bell s3 is definitely discontinued according to two Bell stores I visited.

Isn't it kinda early for Bell to discontinue the S3? The S5 hasn't even been released, and Bell has sold older phones before. It doesn't seem like any other carriers are following suit.

The s3 has been around for a long time and Bell now has the 5" 1080p Alcatel quad-core Meaditek phone on voice-only for $49.95.

I was thinking of getting that, but it's kinda a lesser known phone and I was worried about dev support for it.

I am hoping for better support well. Hopefully, that will happen as I am interested in the phone as s potential HUP.

It seems like a good phone too...maybe I'll pick one up in a couple of months.

Back on topic....

The S5 is going to be revealed at Feb.24, perhaps the S4 will drop in price to around the same price the S3 maintained in the past year.
