As a limited promo until December 25th., Telus plans on pricing the BlackBerry Storm for $249.99 on a three-year contract, so long as combined voice and data costs are over $45/month. That’s still a far cry from Verizon’s $99 offer, but it is a step down from the $299.99 that we had been hearing from Best Buy. If you’re not the contractin’ type, you’ll also be able to pick up the Canadian BlackBerry 9530 for $599.99. Bell is supposedly releasing the Storm too, but we have heard very little from their end in terms of pricing or release dates. We’re still clinging to a December 18th. shipping date, but as usual, no promises.
