Chatr Wireless just released their first smartphone, the LG Phoenix, and its data offering. It now seems the discount carrier is getting ready to unload another entry level smartphone to their lineup. The Sony Ericsson txt pro CK15a will retail for $125 outright and targets those heavy texters as it comes with a slide out QWERTY keyboard. This basic device has a 3-inch display with a 400 x 240 resolution and has a decent 3.2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM radio. We have no info on a release date but should be available soon.

(Thanks tipster!)

    Android ?

      No android. I think this is the same phone than Sony Ericsson xperia mini pro but not android. The price is ok for 125$ Probably future shop or best will have some discount like the Nokia C3

    • John Wang

      It runs “Sony Ericsson proprietary OS”.

      Connectivity: 2G (no 3G) + wifi.

    At that price point it’s a damn shame they don’t make a CDMA version. Do you have any idea how wildly Public Mobile customers would flip out (no pun intended) to get a Sony phone for $125? I’d be the first one in line.

    @eric….. Not quite understanding your logic…..CDMA is bell/telus ONLY!!!!!!!! And the tech is old and on it’s way to the landfill. Rogers and all new entrants are gsm/hspa/aws including telus/bell as well (since 2 years ago). So why would anyone want CDMA devices….. Because they live in a closet from the year 2000 with waiting for the earth to end. Gee…….

    • Victor

      Public Mobile uses CDMA.

    How quickly will this eat up your 100MB data allowance?

    Jonesy, Mickey the fat uglu f**k-why donèt you go eat Wind Mobile’s a*s. You’re such a pathetic moron and no one listens to you. You’re an i***t.

      Wow, not only is your grammar and spelling astonishingly atrocious but you had to cowardly hijack someone else’s ID to take a pot shot at me! A proverbial trifecta of fail!
