Telus to get EXCLUSIVE Canadian rights to BlackBerry Thunder

August 7, 2008 | By | 7 Comments

This is great news for Telus customers! The latest word is that Telus will be getting an exclusive on the highly anticpated touchscreen BlackBerry Thunder 9500. This means that Telus would join Verizon and Vodafone for a World Wide exclusive. Apparently the rumor has been confirmed by three separate sources, including one from the Globe and Mail stating “On the other hand, Telus is expected to launch (exclusively) a new touch screen BlackBerry this fall, which could steal some of the Bold’s Thunder, albeit temporarily.” in an article called “10 Reasons to Buy Rogers“.

It is expected that the Thunder will launch sometime in October (possibly Oct. 8th) on Verizon and hopefully Telus.

    Telus will not even get the Thunder. That’s what i actually heard from one of their employees…..

    I would look to Bell for the best Blackberry ever…..

    i also work for telus and we are getting it, can some one correct me but i herd that there are 2 the thunder and the storm one is a full touch like the HTC diamond and the other is a touch with a slide out qwerty keypad like the HTC touch dual, is this correct ?

    Will the storm playback video with existing hardware? And will there be a discounted price point for existing pda (blackberry) users?
