BlackBerry announced that their entry-level BlackBerry Q5 will be coming to various Canadian carriers on August 13th. The press release omitted carrier pricing, but thankfully, we now have this for those interested. According to an internal TELUS doc, the Q5 will be available for $49 on a 2-year contract or $425 outright.
This QWERTY/Touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone has a 3.1-inch display (resolution of 720×720), 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear-facing camera and 2MP front-facing camera, 8GB internal storage and LTE-connectivity. Have a quick look at our hands-on of the TELUS BlackBerry Q5 here.
Update: We have now received pricing for the Bell and TELUS BlackBerry Q5. Both carriers will have the Q5 available in black and white, plus Virgin will have an exclusive red version, for $399.99 outright, or as low as $49.95 on a 2-year voice and data plan.
