Telus BlackBerry Q5 on sale for just $80 USD from Best Buy Canada
Those living in Canada have an opportunity to take advantage of a price cut for the Telus version of the BlackBerry Q5 from Best Buy Canada. The big box retailer will sell you the handset for the equivalent of $80 USD. That is a savings of $24 USD from Best Buy Canada's regular price. It also is a massive $160 USD discount from BlackBerry's own online price of $240 USD for the unlocked version of the phone. That works out to a 67% price cut.

The BlackBerry Q5 is equipped with a 3.1-inch screen with a 720 x 720 resolution. This works out to a pixel density of 329ppi. The 1:1 aspect ratio means that the device has a square display. Powering the phone is the Qualcomm S4 SoC which features a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage. Those needing more memory can access the 32GB capacity microSD slot. A 5MP camera adorns the back of the Q5 while a 2MP snapper graces the front of the unit. A 2180mAh battery keeps the lights on, and BlackBerry 10.3 is pre-installed.

With BlackBerry 10.3, the Q5 offers BlackBerry Assistant, the platform's virtual assistant. BlackBerry Blend allows users of the phone to access the content of their device on their PC. And of course, BlackBerry Hub allows you to find all of your social media notifications including tweets, BBM messages, texts and conversations, all in one place.

Unfortunately, the device is sold out on Best Buy Canada's website. The site, however, will show you which Best Buy stores near you have the phone in stock. The site will also let you reserve a unit at the sale price. The deal ends June 4th or until inventory is all sold out.
