Almost eleven months ago, the entry-level BlackBerry Q5 was released in Canada. The device resembled a QWERTY BlackBerry Q10, but sported a plastic body with squared-off corners. With the new wave of BlackBerry devices upon us, it seems that Bell is making space on its shelves, giving the Q5 an “End of Life” notice.
This is not too much of a surprise as the device can now be purchased for as low as $150 outright. However, it could be a sign that Bell and possibly other Canadian carriers will be on deck to support BlackBerry with the upcoming Passport and Classic launches.
The BlackBerry Passport is due out in September, followed by the Classic in November.
