The Telus news release states, "The BlackBerry Storm smartphone will be available at select TELUS
stores across Canada in limited quantity starting today, with
availability in additional TELUS stores in January."
BlackBerry Cool advised orders placed after December 17, will not arrive in time for Christmas.
It has been suggested that the full-launch of the BlackBerry Storm was delayed until January
because RIM can not deliver enough stock. Current estimates report
that Telus only has
2,500 units for all of Canada, reports Boy Genius. BGR also states that
the few BlackBerry Storms who find their way to Telus stores will only
be sold to new customers.
