Last week we collaborated with TELUS to give one lucky CrackBerry reader a free BlackBerry Q5. This QWERTY edition of the BlackBerry 10 OS just launched last week on TELUS, and it's a great option for both newcomers to BlackBerry and those who may be looking for a lower cost introduction to the new OS. The Q5 has all of the BlackBerry 10 goodness you've come to love, or been hearing all about, but it's packed in a QWERTY form that's reminiscent of the Curve line. The Q5 is running BlackBerry 10.1 and does it well thanks to the 1.2GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. Believe it or not, the Q5 has the same 3.1" 720x720 display of the Q10, the only difference being the Q5 is an LCD compared to the SuperAMOLED screen of the Q10.

We also wanted to remind you that TELUS has a fantastic program for those new to BlackBerry or who might just need a little extra help with their device. As a TELUS customer you get a complimentary 15 to 45 minute learning session tailored to your needs at the the TELUS Learning Centre. With the option of either a one-to-one learning session or a group session, you're sure to get the hands on help that you need to help you get the most out of your new device.

Without further ado, the winner of the BlackBerry Q5 from TELUS is...

Marco Mecelli

Congrat Marco! We'll be in touch soon. Didn't win this time? Don't let it get you down, there's always another contest just around the corner.

It looks an awful lot like the legacy devices, especially with the pop-out buttons. I saw a lot of similarities to it and the recent 9720- which is also touting some BB10 features within OS 7.1

thats what makes it appealing. a legacy style phone with bb10

Now I wouldn't go as far as say it looks better than the Q10, but there is a tech store here that has the Q5, even though it isn't officially out in the USA, and sure, it does look nicer in person than in the pictures, but the Q10 is damn sexy. I think I feel about the Q10 like when I first saw the 9900...

i still have yet to see a Q10 in person.. i believe it's releasing in 2 days through Verizon. looks damn sexy i never even owned the same style while using BBOS but then again I only started using BBRY in 2010 when i got the 9800 then upgraded to the 9810 and now the Z10. I don't even know if AT&T will get the Q10... but I already upgraded and got the Z... sucks. You got the white Q10?

Didn't enter. Would be too embarrassed to be seen with a Q5. An I'm a huge BlackBerry fan! But the Q5... just hideous IMO.

Finally got my Q5! Love it. Phone seriously feels and works great. Does not feel "cheap" at all. The keyboard is quite nice, all around awesome device. Q10 is still my favorite though, but this Q5 is definitely a sweet choice. I don't think people would feel like they have any lesser of a device by choosing the Q5, I mean the specs are less - of course, but it doesn't feel less somehow. To me, this phone would be perfect for so many people as a first smartphone experience, definitely.
