Well it's being released in November, I'd say carriers will know soon if not already if they're gonna be selling it or not.

If they don't offer the Priv I would have to guess that they will be the only Canadian company not to. How to support a struggling Canadian company eh! Certainly will be shame on KOODO.

While we are passing around Shame, shame on BB for manufacturing this through Foxconn in China.

Surely 90% of phones are made in China? Maybe not Nokia!!

So it's okay for BlackBerry to not support Canadian manufacturing (a struggling industry) but not okay for Koodo to not carry BlackBerry (a struggling Canadian company). Seems legit.

BB always outsourced most tech companies do. A few huge manufacturing companies (mostly in Asia) make pretty much everything. RAM, CPU, screens you name it. BB was never made in Waterloo or elsewhere in Canada. Just software and servers was ever in Canada and is still here. Food for thought Chad Burr

Tristan, Blackberry devices WERE actually made in Canada. I bought a Curve in 2008 that was manufactured in Canada.

Actualy they werent Kit. They got the right for the Maple Leaf sticker because they meet the 15% req which came from using chips from ATI in Ottawa which were made in Taiwan. Which no longer meets specs because ATI is now owned by AMD and BB cant make the made in Can claim anymore

I'm in, me and Chad and a few other MM have been definitely showing Koodo intrested in the device so we're trying to pursue them into carrying it if they take our suggestions at all that is lol.
Chad and anyone else who hasn't hit the "Me To" icon up top to make it more visual that there's definite intrested in the Priv

apple 6s plus $800.00    BB priv $ 900.00    I don't see much of a difference in price ?
I guess I would want to know is if I bought a BB priv would it work on Koodo ???
