It looks like Wind Mobile and Mobilicity are not the only ones looking to compete in the Canadian wireless scene. Calgary-based Airtel Wireless recently re-branded their offerings with new plans and devices and today they have released the iDen friendly Motorola Brute i680.

You might remember last week when TELUS’ MiKe Network released this for $229.99 on a 3-year contract or $429.99 with no contract. However, over at Airtel you can pick this same device up for $209 on a 3-year contract or a low $309 with no contract.

The Brute as described by Airtel allows you to “Make a mockery of the elements”. This can handle all sorts of nasty elements such as rain, dust, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, salt, fog, humidity and solar radiation. The Brute has a 1.3-inch external display and a 2.2-inch internal display (resolution is 176×220), comes with a 2 megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth, Music Player, 2.5mm headset jack with overall dimensions are 100 x 53 x 26 mm with a weight of 159 grams.
