The “coming soon” label for the BlackBerry Curve 9360 and Torch 9860 are showing its pride on the TELUS site. Internal docs revealed the 9860 having a launch date scheduled for August 29th, but a new doc we received today highlights the 30th, possibly caused by shipping delays.

In addition, the Curve 9360 was announced yesterday, RIM said this new entry-level QWERTY smartphone would be release by the end of the month and it seems they’ll follow through. The screenshot shows TELUS is getting the Curve organized and “will be available for sale as of August 26th”. No word on prices, Koodo will be releasing the 9360 for $300 outright and $150 on the Tab.

More soon!
(Thanks tipster!)

    The keyboard on the curve and bold are bigger than the screen. This is a proven and verifiable FACT.

    BB’s are nice to use when you have no other option and its the last device on earth

    I had a blackberry once, in a nightmare, then I woke up and kissed my iPhone

  • Mr. Hens

    Curve 9360? LOL

    Get real. Show us new REAL devices like Samsung and HTC or new iPhone. Not repetitive made phones from year 2005

    The keyboard on the curve and bold are bigger than the screens.

    Alternatively stated, the screens on the curve and bold are smaller than the keyboards.

    These are scientific and mathematically verifiable FACTS.

    Why do carriers even bother with crap like this? They just lead themselves to carrying excess inventory

  • Ethels Lounge

    All of our employees use iPhones and Android devices

    I would use a BlackBerry but my fingers are tired from typing on plastic keys all day at work and the last thing i want to do is type on a plastic keyboard mobile phone.

  • Afif

  • JSmith

    So, I will admit to the folks on here. I use BlackBerry and I am stuck on a 5 year contract with my carrier using the BlackBerry pearl Flip phone. They said it was a good phone and it was a good deal, but I was tricked. I guess I fell for it and now I am stuck. I also paid $399 for the phone so is that a good deal? IS IT!?!?!

    • Ryan Roeder

      What carrier? I’d kill to get that deal!

  • Harold the Barber

    I like. You like? We like.

    • Alex Perrier

      No like.

      Make it prepaid priced RIM! :-O

  • Afif

    I want to get the curve 9360!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mr. Cloutier

    Who uses a blackberry?

  • steven

    WTF!! I switched from Iphone 3g to BB 9900. The greatest move i ever made. Its fast, secure (BB has the best security), how can you trust Android for banking security? The keyboard is smooth like butter!!!! I love BB. The new curves look sweet!!

    I went to a wedding last week 8 out 10 people at my table had BB, not one Android device or Iphone. Went on vacation, all the kids had BB’s, saw one Iphone crap.

    @Simon, you’re doing something wrong if you’re on a 5 year contract.
