Canada's Telus gets a "me too" with its launch of the BlackBerry Curve 8530 on the heels of Sprint and Verizon. As a refresher, Telus' Curve features that cute little optical trackpad, a slimmer profile, a microSD slot to boost the devices memory up to 16GB, and will ship in red or silver. Pricing on the longest term basically matches both Sprint and Verizon at CAD $49 -- though the term is a year longer -- while a commitment-free purchase runs you $349, one-year at $299, and two years goes for a full $200 more than its US neighbors. Nice to have options, we suppose, even if they are a bit on the steep side.
