    It just pisses me that it's not an hspa friendly device. I'm gonna hold off on this one I think. LTE should be here by the summer.

    Not to mention telus has altered there plans and mine is way to good a package to give up. I'm a full retail guy from now on!

    Honestly LTE by summer, thats a dream. Ignore what verizon keeps saying. few things to know about LTE

    1. all network launches are usually aircards and stuff first

    2. LTE is strictly data. different carriers initially will have different ways to go about their phones. some will do gsm/lte, some will do cdma/lte might be other options too

    LTE wont be good and ready before 2011 and u can quote me on that and more than likely it will be summer 2011

    I'm still holding out for an HSPA Storm2 to drop.
    If Telus officially announces the 9550 instead of the 9520 i'm gonna be pissed.
    Rogers might get it Q1 2010 also.

    No hope of this. I have explained this on various sites. Verizon paid for the exlcusive rights to the storm in North america. This locks out any possibility of a hspastormwith north american bands. they dont want unlocked ones going to at&t.

    think of it theway at&t and the iphone have a contract. That contract is the reason there is no cdma iphone.

    Yes I live in canada too. Telus will NOT launch LTE before verizon. Especially after they gave 800 million toward the 1.6 billion dollar cost of putting up that hspa network.

    You would be pissed anyways, the 9520 doesnt work with north american hspa either. Only the 2100mHz European band. That is why telus is launching the iphone.

    RileyFreeman is right LTE wont be launched in 2010 most likely late 2011 early 2012. And its true 9520 hspa wont work with the telus HSPA network. For this reason telus will be releasing 9550 and yes the date on mobile ninja is suppose to be right november 24. IMHO if you are on Telus and want the best BB get the 9700 if you are looking at a touchscreen i suggest trying out the HTC Hero its a wicked phone and its HSPA too bad it isnt a BB
    Have a Telus related question? Just ask!

    Just to add some back up to this photo

    BGR is reporting that Telus announced that their handsets will be available for purchase at Black's. And if you go to Black's website and search for Telus handsets this is what you get

    I was in a Telus store 3 days ago and asked about it. The guy told me they were told that they would be getting them by the end of the month. I think Nov 27 was the day he mentioned.
