bell blackberry storm

WOW Huge news coming via BlackBerry Cool commentor LouTreize who has tipped us off that the BlackBerry Storm will be coming to Bell as well in Canada! Read what he has to say below:

Now these!

“Balsillie said the new touchscreen BlackBerry will also be available in Canada on Bell (TSX:BCE) and Telus (TSX:T) networks later this fall.”

RIM will be launching the device with partner carriers Verizon Communications Inc. in the U.S. and Vodafone Group PLC in Europe. Mr. Balsillie said BCE Inc. and Telus Corp. will be selling the Storm by the end of the year.

The question here is whether or not Balsillie/mainstream press screwed up, or Bell is really slow with their PR… If someone from Bell would like to drop us a line, it would be greatly appreciated!!

Seriously, I’m expecting the UPS guy to show up with a Storm at my house any minute now. What other news could possibly go up tonight?

    Hahaha, it’s 2am and this is driving me insane. And a broken 8830 doesn’t help the situation. Love the picture but i’m still wondering what’s going on with all these claims.

    I tried it a half hour ago and it brought me to a “doesn’t exist” page. Interesting!

    “”This is meant to be on (high-speed) CDMA networks in North America,” said Balsillie, who declined to discuss the Storm’s pricing.

    While the Storm smartphone also runs on GSM networks, which account for about 80 per cent of the global market, the device will only be available initially on GSM carriers in Europe, India, Australia and New Zealand, RIM said.”

    The Bell site referenced before (www.bell.ca/storm) now goes to the mobility page. No dedicated Storm page, but at least they have heard of it! LOL.
