This could be a very interesting move. For months it’s been rumoured that newly created Rogers discount brand Chatr Wireless would be coming out with an unlimited data offering. The time just might have arrived. According to one of our sources it seems that the LG P505, otherwise known as the LG Optimus Phoenix, is heading to Chatr. Sure, you can still use this device without data but why bother? It’s loaded with the web, quick access to Facebook and email… Still no word on when this will officially launch but the price point looks to be coming in at $190 outright.
This will probably be released in August for the back-to-school time frame and blow everything away that’s currently in the Chatr lineup. The Phoenix is an Android-powered device that runs OS 2.2 Froyo, 600 MHz processor, has a 3.2-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 320×480, 3.2 megapixel camera that can shoot videos, Wi-Fi and can also create a Wi-Fi hotspot.
We’ll have more info soon!
