Calgary-based Airtel Wireless launched their iDEN network back in July of last year, their major competition is TELUS’ Mike Network as they both offer “Push-to-Connect” services. They haven’t officially released a new device for what seems to be months but that’s all about to change soon.
We received an e-mail from Airtel stating “Airtel Wireless in Calgary was approved this week by Google to offer the new Motorola Android i1 in Canada. We will receive our first order in approx 4 weeks. We are very excited to offer the newest Android products on our iDEN network in Calgary.”
No word on pricing but it’s always good to have another option of where you can pick the i1 up. This will be available “sometime this fall” on the Mike Network too.
Update: Regarding the pricing, you can expect this to be priced at $399.99 no contract.
