Koodo Mobile is on deck to release RIM’s new BlackBerry 10 device. According to this internal doc it reveals that employees have started their training, specifically soaking in all the info in a course called “Selling BlackBerry 10 to End Users.” Still no word on the exact launch date or pricing.

In addition to scoring BB10, Koodo seems to be prepping to bring on their first Windows Phone 8 smartphone. Employees have also started training on this OS with several course outlines. This is a tricky one as TELUS (Koodo’s parent company) currently only has one WP8 device, that being the high-end Samsung ATIV S. Perhaps Koodo will intro a new Nokia device, or possibly release the HTC 8X or 8S. We’ll update you once we find out more info…

(Thanks tipster!)

    Tel us was supposed to release the lumia 820, maybe that’s the one koodo is getting

  • Darth Paton

    i’m hoping 620 or better yet, 820. 8X would be decent too, but probs no 920 🙁

    • Frederick Edwards

      620 is just suppose to be hitting Asia this quarter, even though I want that too. Likely the HTC 8s or a budget Samsung like the ATIV Odyssey.

  • Oldschool

    Nokia lumia 620 in black is on its way to telus for February.

  • cobwiggy

    I bet it will be the Nokia 820

  • Mark

    Would be nice if they got the Nokia Lumia 820

  • Waiting for Razr M HD w/3300mah

    Bet they won’t mention that the battery lasts only 1/2 day!

    • Nothin But RIM

      Bet you will mention it because you are waiting on a phone that has a 3300mah battery.

  • Blas

    Would be cool if they got the 820, but it’ll probably be the 620 if anything.

    If it’s gonna be a Nokia phone i might upgrade my Lumia 610, if it’s gonna be a Htc phone i’m jumping ship to Rogers for a red/yellow Lumia 920

    • Darth Paton

      You are upgrading from a 610 on koodo to a 920 on Rogers? Talk about a price leap!

    Was playing with Gladiator this morning. Not impressed at all
