Chatr Wireless will not only launch their first Android device soon, but also make data available to customers. The data add-on will most likely be the $10/month 100MB plan. As for what you can expect the price of the upcoming LG Phoenix to come in at, we’ve received word that this have the no-contract cost of $190. Pretty decent price considering parent company Rogers is selling the Phoenix for $224.99 no term.

Android devices are surely making the way into all Rogers brands. Chatr will have the Phoenix, the upcoming Fido Android devices are the LG Optimus 2X, Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Q. Meanwhile, Rogers will clearly bring on the premium devices such as the HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D. Three different brands hitting 3 various price points: low end (Chatr), mid range (Fido) and higher end (Rogers).

(Thanks tipster!)

    Sound expensive if i compare that to the optimus one.

    hmmm so $35 for province wide calling, 50 text and 100mb data or would you want $35 for unlimited talk, text and data? Chatr has zones too and no different than New Entrants

    Make it $5 for 100mb!!so it can give us a cheaper option($30 a month instead)

  • NagoyaX

    i agree with terry… since the phone is the exact same device as optimus one… its way too much to charge!

    Just go to Koodo, buy the $150 Optimus One, get the $50 gift card, get it unlocked, and it costs less than Chatr! :-D

    @alex perrier, why not just stay with Koodo, Koodo has unlimited canada wide calling, 2gb of real data, and if you talk to retentions they could give you 6gb and throw in caller ID and Voicemail, and just add unlimited text and picture messaging with NO ZONES. can take your phone with you anywhere in Canada.

    Not a bad deal. I know the kids in the schools will be eating this up! With the credits you can get with Chatr the data is free for 6 months. Niiiice hmm a phone that works, data that works, on a network that works! Shocking

    jabronied and Outsourced yet again! and now contracts!

    Oh wait thats WIND!

    so gotta love tony saying he was misquoted about the day they offer contracts is the day the close up shop! he now says he never said that! never say never jabroni!

    Mike,

    Getting the gift card requires a credit check. Besides that, they’re among the best providers. First to eliminate long distance on all non-City plans, and the 5pm clock is rather generous.

    Will Fido bite back? Virgin become a virgin again? They haven’t blinked yet to Koodo’s power punches. Here’s to hoping for the best…
