Koodo never announced anything about the Q5, Mobile Syrup said they're getting it but koodo never said anything . As Mobile Syrup has been wrong before I wouldn't say it's official in the slightest yet. Koodo does however now have the Samsung Discover now in the lineup.

I agree with Paul. Although it seems pretty likely that Koodo will get this since Mobile Syrup revealed the news - we can't be 100% sure since Koodo hasn't released the news themselves and Mobile Syrup has been wrong a few times. However, if this is true; that's great! That's a good price imo. :)

It would be great for koodo and great for BlackBerry, more ppl need to be able to experience BB10 as its an amazing OS. I can't believe all the ppl that bash Blackberry who obviously haven't tried the OS short of in stores which you can't get a true read on the OS. The BB10 OS needs a week or so to bring all your accounts together into the hub to see just how great it is. It's the best OS for getting things done fast which makes it amazing for business oriented ppl and I wish ppl would see that instead of bashing something they really don't have any idea about. If this indeed does come to Koodo it will be great because it means more Blackberry 10 devices in ppls hands & more ppl to spread the word of how great it actually is.

That's great news, this will hopefully help Blackberry gain more customers to help spread the word of how great BB10 is when you actually give it the time needed to bring your life together. I'm still waiting for the A10 & it's 5" display, I think the OS is best suited for a large screen device. I've always wished someone would make an Android launcher with swipe gestures to control the device as I love large displays and always thought swipes are the best way to control a device with a large display so the next best thing is BB10 & it's an awesome OS so it could very well pull me away from Android if built like the Z10.

Yeah I agree, I think the A10 is what a lot of people are holding out for. I hope they offer a Z10 refresh as well though, or another device that's in the standard 4"-4.2" range, 5" is a little too large for me.

I just hope BBRY steps up its OS and work with app developers to get more high quality, wanted apps.
