We have heard many rumors about BlackBerry 10 release dates in the US and UK, however, we haven’t heard anything from the Canadian carriers. Sure, they all have up preorder pages and we know they are planning on launching it, but we didn’t know when. Now we have a speculated release date for both Bell and Telus. That date is February 5th and it lines up perfectly with what we are hearing from both RIM and supply side sources. There’s no confirmation of a launch date for Rogers, but we would assume they would be launching the same day as the other Canadian carriers. We’ll get official confirmation of these dates in just 5 days, when RIM officially unveils BlackBerry 10 and announces all the release specifics.
