Back on February 7th we posted an article of a rumour that stated Koodo Mobile was going to jump on the bus and add smartphones to their lineup in the April/May time frame. We hear this is still on track and more news today from straight from BlackBerry BIS as it shows the Koodo logo.
We’re not 100% sure on what BlackBerry device/devices they’ll launch but early rumours are the Curve 8530. In addition, we can see Koodo launching the Pearl and the Pearl Flip as these will fit well with their Tab system (all CDMA devices). Regarding the Tab they have in place and smartphones, we were also informed that “there would be an increase in the Tab on data phones/packages above a certain price point (similar to the carriers and how they subsidize pricing on a 3-year contract with a minimum $50 Voice and Data plan).”
We’ll have more info soon with specifically what device/devices they’ll be adding.
