Not wanting to be left out of the party, Bell has followed Telus’ lead and announced that it too has released the BlackBerry 9530 Storm in Canada. Available today in the Greater Toronto Area, the Storm will be “widely available at stores” across Canada tomorrow. If you live in a more rural area and prefer to order your phones online, then bell.ca won’t be listing the Storm until tomorrow. As for the cost of the phone, Bell is asking for 3-years and $249.99 in conjunction with a minimum of $45 of voice and data per month. ($5 more per month than Telus requires.) As for the levels of stock that each store will receive, we’re afraid that it’s not a whole lot because Bell has been emailing their most valued customers $50-off coupons for the Storm that are valid for all of January. All things lead us to believe that Bell is doing what Telus is doing — only offering the device to new customers until adequate levels of stock arrive.
Thanks, to everyone that sent this in!
