Canada’s big three networks – Bell, TELUS, and Rogers – have announced that they all will be carrying RIM’s new BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone. While no one could give an exact date, Rogers did say “in the coming weeks” while the others said stuff like “later this year” and the simple “coming soon”.
Bell, TELUS, and Rogers all run similar 3G/HSPA networks in Canada, and we expect they will all launch this hot new device around the same time. Bell also took advantage to say their sub-brand Virgin Mobile will also be carrying the Torch soon. Sadly no one would confirm the exact date or pricing, but its expected to be anywhere between $149-$199 with three year contract.
So who’s going to grab a BlackBerry Torch in Canada? I know I am.
