Best Buy Canada Now Taking Pre Orders For TELUS BlackBerry Pearl 3G

While at Best Buy today I happened to notice they had the Rogers BlackBerry Pearl 3G on display with a "coming soon" note below it. As per normal while perusing devices in store, a representive approached me to ask if I needed any help so I asked about the BlackBerry Pearl 3G release dates knowing they were not solid at this point.

The rep informed me that Best Buy was taking pre orders at moment for the TELUS version with a $50 deposit. TELUS will be releasing in two colors, black and pink with the pricing set at $29.99 with new three year contract and $449.99 without contract. You can place your pre order at any one of your local Besy Buy locations.

Where the carriers takes it all.

If you choose a 2 years contract Telus will only deduct 50$ from this handset.

So its $400 on the two-year? What a waste. I'm only a year and a half in and really want an upgrade but even with the loyalty offers that isn't worth it.

Wow. Soon five years... then decade... then lifetime?! I know, a slippery slope argument, but still.

Three years is a long time... new technology about every year and a half. Economic booms and busts can happen in less time!

Oh, I can't wait to see it in pink! I'm sure it will take a while before it gets to Sprint, though. :(
