For those interested in giving Primus a go – or if you’re already with them – they have just added two devices to their lineup. Certainly not the newest phones on the block but a great addition.

The first is the Nokia Surge 6790, a good messaging device. This was launched by Rogers way back in October of last year and has a 2.4-inch screen, full slide-out QWERTY keypad, 2.0-megapixel camera, IM, 2.5mm jack, Bluetooth 2.0 capabilities, holds up to 16GB with a microSD card and weighs in at 124 grams. This can be yours for $50 on a 3-year; $149.00 on a 2-year; $199.00 on 1-year and an OK price of $249.00 no-contract.

Next up is the addition on an Android. The HTC Magic+ hits Primus for the following price plans and comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen display (resolution of 320 x 480), full QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi: 3-year contract: $79.00; 2-year contract: $399.00; 1-year contract: $449.00 and No contract: $599.00

    $599 no contract price? they must be crazy. i mean virgin is offering a legend for $349 which is a lot better and a newer phone not to mention it’s way sexier!!!

    Rogers has a similar pricing issue with the Magic+ since the Liquid E came out.

    Liquid E – 2.1 with a snapdragon – $425
    Magic+ – 1.5 with ~400Mhz – $599

    I recently upgraded to the Liquid E and there is no comparison when it comes to the snappiness of the OS.

    Consider those old Android phones legacy and move on…

    Magic+ has a 528Mhz processor and the Liquid E’s Snapdragon OS underclocked to 768Mhz (or something like that).
