It's scheduled to roll out in Europe in Q4 though pricing is still yet to be known. There’s no info yet on whether this will be released in Canada or not, but if it does, we’re looking at Telus as the likely carrier who will be offering this one up since they were the ones who launched the Motorola Milestone locally a year ago.
