Apart from the 113 locations, land and brand awareness we’re still questioning the reason behind the $28 million TELUS buyout of Black’s Photo. However, the more places to buy mobile devices is all good and today, what’s being called the “future of wireless”, your local Black’s Photo is getting prepared to offer TELUS products and services “in time for the holiday shopping season”.
Joe Natale, president, TELUS Consumer Solutions said “The future of wireless begins today with the launch of the largest and fastest network in Canada. Our customer’s needs are evolving. More and more wireless devices come complete with high quality photo and video capabilities, and through our distribution at Black’s, TELUS customers who are passionate about photography will be able to easily select the device that best suits their needs. We’re excited to launch TELUS’ best-in-class wireless devices at Black’s, Canada’s premier national imaging and digital retailer.”
The best news comes when you look through the device lineup! They have listed the unreleased TELUS BlackBerry Storm2 9550 and describes it as “You don’t have to sacrifice functionality for entertainment with the BlackBerry Storm2 9550 smartphone. Quickly and easily message your friends with the enhanced virtual keyboard on the high resolution clickable touchscreen.”
Ethel Taylor, president and general manager of Black’s, said, “Canadians will never again have to say ‘I wish I had my camera‘. Now they will always be ready to capture special moments with their TELUS camera phones. Today’s wireless handsets offer high quality photo and video capabilities and are the perfect fit for Canadians looking to stay connected, informed and entertained on the go while enjoying their love of digital imaging. Our team has the expertise to meet the wireless and digital imaging needs of Canadians in one convenient location, with the client experience they have come to expect from both Black’s and TELUS.”
