TELUS have recently launched the BlackBerry Curve 8530 for $49.99 on a 3 year plan. You can also get it on 2 and 1 year plans for $249.99 and $349.99 respectively. The 8530 is a really solid phone with a trackpad and OS 5, and I’m expecting a lot of TELUS users to pick this one up. The downside here is that while many carriers are offering the 8530 for free, TELUS still want to offload their old 8330 stock and are offering that device for $0.

When you see Nan Palmero punching out the air like a BlackBerry-enhanced Adonis, it can only mean one thing: OS 4.5 is available for your BlackBerry. Today it’s the BlackBerry Curve 8330 and BlackBerry Pearl 8130 on the Sprint network. We have a quick rundown of new features in OS 4.5, as well as download instructions for your BlackBerry enjoyment.
OS 4.5 Features and Improvements:
- OTASL (Over The Air Software Loading) This enables all future versions of handheld software to be downloaded and installed wirelessly
MMS (Audio, pictures, text, or all three in the same message)
Docs to Go (device-side Word, Excel, and Powerpoint document editing capabilities)
Sounds pretty great, right? Download instructions for BIS and BES users are after the jump. We’ve also heard that OS 4.5 will be released for the BlackBerry 8830 in a few weeks, with an 8703(!) release coming at the end of Q1.
Thanks for the tip, Rob!

Virgin Mobile Canada has officially released their second BlackBerry handset, the BlackBerry Curve 8330. Virgin seems hell-bent on locking Canadians into a three year contract, but the price seems about right at $49.99 on a 3-year contract (with any BlackBerry Bundle). Otherwise, our fellow Canucks will have to shell out $329.99 on a 2-year plan, $379.99 on a 1-year plan or $429.99 for 30 days (read: not worth it).
To sweeten the arrangement, Virgin is throwing in an 8GB MicroSD card while supplies last. Hopefully they will also make a new video promoting the ‘Virgin Lifestyle’.
