BlackBerry Storm non-exclusive at Telus in Canada

updated 08:20 am EDT, Wed October 8, 2008

BBerry Storm for Telus

Quickly following the American launch, Telus on Wednesday also said it would be one of the first to carry the BlackBerry Storm in Canada. Its version is an exact match for the Verizon model and includes both CDMA plus EVDO Revision A for Telus' own network as well as the quad-band GSM plus EDGE and single-band HSPA that let the device roam on world networks. The GPS mapping, 1GB of internal storage plus microSDHC and 3.2-megapixel camera likewise port over to the Canadian edition.

Like Verizon, Telus declines to provide specific release information other than to say its Storm edition will be available "just in time" for the holidays. However, the carrier doesn't claim a national exclusive as with its American counterpart and opens the door to a version for Bell.

A version for Rogers is possible and would represent one of the few BlackBerry Storm introductions to appear on an iPhone provider, though Rogers' version would need to be modified from the Vodafone model if it were to support North American 3G bands.
