This new LG Wink that’s available at Mobilicity pales in comparison to the Google Nexus One or the recently launched Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. However, if you’re cutting out your home phone it’ll be a great first device. Specs are basic as it comes with a 2-inch display (resolution of 240 x 320), 3.5 mm headphone jack, 1.3 megapixel camera, FM radio and can hold up to 4GB with a microSD card. Price is $99.99 outright.

    Another crap phone from Mobilicity. 2 inch touchscreen, 1.3 mp camera, seriously?

    @Fake JAWG:

    Try using your real handle for once…I still agree as I hate LG’s.

    I was in the mobilicity store by metrotown and I can tell you they have a lot of people signing up. If this continues I think the big three will get desperate soon.

    JAWG, I signed up last week with Mobilicity (I kept my telus phone) and I have to say that the coverage is much better than I thought it would be. I can only make preliminary comments about the service because I have not tested everywhere. Downtown has very good reception. The farther you get from the downtown core it gets weaker. I find that south of 41st avenue there are holes. In my basement I have no bars but most of the times I am able to make calls. I was in an elevator today and it worked fine once but later did not.

    I don’t recommend anyone giving up their contract if they need it for business but for the average person mobilicity would be just fine. I will comment to you when I have had it a bit longer to test it out.

    Got a phone exactly like the one above. It does not come with a radio. It is suppose to have an mp3 player but I can’t figure out how to download the music into the phone. The user guide that I had to download is of no help. Help!
