We don’t know too much about Primus and their wireless capabilities – other than they’re a MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) through Rogers which is GSM. A MNVO is a company that provides mobile phone service but doesn’t have its own license spectrum allocation or infrastructure… so they basically rent the infrastructure from a MNO (Mobile Network Operator)
Ok – Primus launched the Motorola W510 and is available from $19.95 on a 3-year contract. There are also different plans that range from $50 for 2-year, $130 for 1-year and a whopping $200 month to month.
The Motorola W510 is a solid basic entry flip phone that comes in “dark grey” and has a 1.3 megapixel camera and 8x zoom (can also record videos). It is lightweight (107 grams) and measures 4.6 x 9.9 x 1.8 cm. The W510 has a good battery life with about 8 hours of talk time and standby time of up to 14 days. Here are some additional specs you might want to consider:
As for Primus they do a great job of comparing all their phones (Nokia 6085, Nokia 3220 and Motorola W510) along with two rate plans to choose:
