Sad news for Telus fans hoping to see the BlackBerry Storm 9530 on the Canadian carrier sometime near the impending Vodafone Storm launch (somewhere between November 14th-18th). We received this email today from a faithful member of the BlackBerry Nation:
Hi, I’m currently a Telus Corporate Store employee and I can guarantee you that the release date WILL NOT BE Nov. 17. I had just attended a Q4 Rally which was at the Ontario Science Centre in which on our PowerPoint slide, the indicated date will be in fact, Dec. 8th. I was unable to photograph the actual slide due to security reasons but the loot and goodies I picked up from the event should be sufficient evidence that I am in fact telling the truth. Within the picture is my lanyard needed for the night for entry to the Rally, and plenty of goodies from the companies which are under the Telus brand and useful specification information sheets.
So there you have it, folks, December 8th. A month away, but still in time to make the Storm a perfect stocking stuffer. I guess that’s why Telus changed their BlackBerry Storm Page to read “in time for the holidays” from “coming soon”.
