Telus BlackBerry Storm Application Center – it does exist!

24 Comments

Well colour me wrong. In my Telus BlackBerry Storm unboxing post, I mentioned that my Storm did not feature the BlackBerry Application Center. It appears I was only half right: while my Storm did not contain the aforementioned App Center, the video above proves that it did launch with the device yesterday.

I’ve contacted Telus and they’re not sure what the problem is (possibly that my Storm was activated before launch?), as I was the first to call in. Of course, the Storm has only been out for a day in Canada, and many new users might not even know what the App Center is to miss it. Post a comment and let us know if your Telus (or Bell) Storm came with the Application Center.

Special thanks to Greg for the video!

    Cool, though I’d have thought on the Canadian version it’d be called the “Application Centre”

    My storm’s aplication centre was almost empty when I got the phone. After I connected it to my PC it did an update and alot of aplications were loaded such as BB Maps and such.

    Every device comes loaded with the application just some devices you have to refer to it as http://mobile.blackberry.com lmao!! :P
    Here’s to hoping RIM shapes it up and makes GOOD use of the app center soon, cause mobile.blackberry.com is looking really frack’n lame as of late, all these new devices and sweet frack all for em. Not even any themes for the Bold yet? Just some link to bPlay, colour me unimpressed.

    My Telus STORM has the menu option for the Application Centre but is only currently populated with FREE apps you can get on the BB mobile site: Facebook; Yahoo Messenger; Google Talk; Windows Live Messenger and MySpace. I assume that the app store will officially launch in March of 2009 if rumours are correct.

    Hey guys,

    Telus got back to me with an answer on the application center. Essentially, if you are a BIS user, it should appear upon activation. If not, call Telus.

    If you are a BES user, have your IT admin or hosted BES company hook you up, as they control whether or not you get it.

    I just got my Blackberry Storm through Telus…however, my Telus plan still has Navigator and Telus recommended that I still used this Navigator, when I tried to log on and download the application from Telus using my Blackberry, an error message comes up xtml or something like that not-formed, should I cancel the navigator subscription or is there something I’m missing?
