Following this mornings official announcement of the BlackBerry Pearl 3G, Canadian carriers Telus and Rogers have proclaimed, via press releases, that they will be carrying the Pearl 3G in the coming months. The Telus announcement reads:
Starting in May, this smartphone will be available from TELUS in pink and in black for as little as $29.99 on a three-year plan. For more information about the new BlackBerry Pearl 3G smartphone, please visit http://www.blackberry.com/pearl3
The Rogers announcement was a bit more non-committal as far as dates go:
Pricing and availability will be announced in the coming weeks. For additional information about Rogers’ lineup of BlackBerry smartphones, please visit www.rogers.com. For more information about the BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100, please visit www.blackberry.com/pearl3G
Any folks north of the border planning to pick up one of these hot little — and we do mean little — numbers?
UPDATE: The PR team from Bell Canada just sent us a little note and would like to be included in the Canadian BlackBerry fun: “Bell Mobility will carry the device is May and it will operate on our HSPA network.”
