Bell also announces BlackBerry Storm launch

RIM BlackBerry Storm

Just hours after TELUS launched the BlackBerry Storm, Bell followed suit.

“Smartphones just got better at Bell as earlier today we sold our first BlackBerry Storm. Bell is offering an unbeatable 3G BlackBerry line up with the addition of the BlackBerry Storm. The BlackBerry Storm delivers a robust combination of multimedia capabilities, improved business tools and international roaming capability – all supported on the proven and trusted BlackBerry platform, and all available with a few simple taps of the screen," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Chief Brand Officer for Bell.

Bell indicates that the BlackBerry Storm is available today at select Bell Mobility stores in the Greater Toronto Area and will be available nationally and online at tomorrow (the product page still shows it as "Coming soon" today). It will be available for CAD$249.95 with a three-year voice and data contract (with a minimum of CAD$45 per month).
