    It would appear that Telus is NOT getting the same model listed on ShopBB.

    Telus' model does not support band 1 LTE, whereas ShopBB does.

    So maybe shopblackberry Priv has wireless charging or they messed up their page?

    Yeah, but the Telus one have more bands into it. Like 13, 25, 26...

    Missing band 1, which when roaming in Japan would be tricky. However raino seems to think this is the Sprint model, which I have no idea why Telus would do this. Even more interesting if it has CDMA radios....

    It might even be all the Canadian carriers?

    Which one you say is better?

    I would go -3. So far all evidence says -3 is the superset model with the exception of CDMA.

    The Telus version looks to be STV100-3. However, this is just based on the closest match. Overall, the specs on the Telus site have issues. They list the processor as a 1.8GHz quad-core. It's technically a hexa-core, though it has a 2/4 core distribution.

    So Telus would have the -3 and shopBB -1??

    I'm almost certain it's not 3. Either 5 or 6.

    Are these even available? Where is the rationale in having so many different radio versions.

    Oh I'm certain they are in labs or something somewhere.

    STV100-6 was the model Android Authority reported on in their "eyes-on". And for some reason I keep thinking Baka's unit is the same one.

    Depends on if you travel with your phone and like to use local networks. If you do, then the more bands you have the better. More bands equals more compatibility with various carriers around the world.

    Think channel numbers. Carrier A, B builds their network to use channel 1, carrier C uses channel 2, and so on. If your phone only supports channel 1, you can't use it on carrier C.

    Generally the bands are distributed geographically.

    Well if you're not leaving Canada you're fine. Just unlock it, both models listed on Telus and ShopBB will work with all carriers, so you can switch for cheaper plans when they pop up.

    If Telus is getting a different model, maybe we may luck out and it will have wireless charging.

    I contacted shop blackberry and they said the Canadian model does have wireless charging. They recommended a Samsung charger as blackberry wasn't making an oem one.
