The second generation of the Neon has officially landed at Rogers. The Neon2 has some improvements from the original, mainly the increased screen size, memory and the overall design looks cleaner.
The Neon2 packs a slideout QWERTY keyboard, 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display with a resolution of 240×400 (was a 2.4-inch display with the fist Neon), can hold up to 8GB with a microSD card (was only 4 before), 2 megapixel camera with video, FM radio, MP3 player, Bluetooth. Overall dimensions are 107.5×52.5×15.9mm with a weight of 122 grams (was 109 grams before).
The Neon2 is priced at a low $19.99 on a 3-year contract, but we’ve already seen this hit a low $0.00 at Future Shop. Other price points range all the way up to a decent $174.99 no-contract. This will probably find it’s way over to Fido soon.
