So the question this morning for Canadians is who will be launching the BlackBerry Storm 9530 first? Rumors over night claim Bell will have a 6 month exclusivity on it, however we don’t think that is true.
BlackBerryNews is reporting that they received a tip from a reliable source saying “Bell Mobility will be in fact releasing the Storm in mid Q4/early Q1. Also it will be exclusive for 6 months to the Bell system. So Telus will have to wait.”
After hearing of this we checked with several sources, which have helped us in the past with Telus’ launches. They claim that Bell has no exclusivity on the Storm and that Telus should be releasing it just in time for Christmas or shortly after Verizon. Furthermore they can’t confirm that Bell will even be getting the device at all.
Therefore we aren’t too sure what to report for now. Bell may have a new advertising campaign, but we can’t seem them getting an exclusive on such a hot product. Stay tuned for more details when they come in.
