Telus brings CDMA version of BlackBerry Storm2
Still adding to its CDMA smartphones, Telus today gave that side of its network an upgrade through its version of the BlackBerry Storm2. The successor to the original Storm has made some improvements, including replacing the mechanical click-down touchscreen with a piezoelectric system. It still generates a physical response but still allows for basic multi-touch inputs to speed up typing.
There is also a Wi-Fi radio built into the handset. Telus will sell the BlackBerry Storm2 for $200 CAD (about $190) on a three-year contract, $500 ($477) on a two-year deal, $550 ($525) with a one-year commitment or $600 ($573) contract-free.
