Best Buy Canada's Free Phone Friday premieres with the BlackBerry Torch 9800
Canadians and those American crossing the border can take advantage of the debut of Best Buy Canada's Free Phone Friday. The lucky phone that can be brought home at no cost with a 3-year contract is the BlackBerry Torch 9800. Originally launched in September, the handset was designed to compete with the Apple iPhone and the best Android devices. With BlackBerry 6 OS and a new WebKit browser, RIM might have been listening to what their loyal customers wanted from a Berry, but the execution came up a bit short (although RIM has said that it got things right with the new BlackBerry 7 OS which has what RIM calls an "industry leading browser").

Best Buy Canada offers the BlackBerry Torch 9800 for TELUS, Virgin, Rogers, Bell and SaskTel versions. After today, the Canadian big box retailer will have 3 more Free Phone Friday's before the promotion ends. Anyone want to reveal which phone they hope will be free next week?
