Leak hints Telus will offer NFC-enabled SIMs on October 10th

After nearly a year of being the only NFC-based SIM supplier in Canada, it seems that Rogers is about to get some competition. An internal document spotted by MobileSyrup appears to indicate that Telus is planning on launching a new $15 NFC-enabled SIM card on October 10th. It's said to be compatible with the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the Samsung Galaxy S III at launch, and should deliver LTE and HSPA+ speeds. Like the CIBC and Rogers deal, customers will require a credit card and a downloaded app from an eligible bank in order to make those over-the-air transactions. We don't know more details than that, but here's hoping you'll be able to use it at your local Tim Hortons.
