Way back in the middle of October of last year we let you know that TELUS’ sub-brand Koodo Mobile was going to be releasing an Android-powered device. This move would make perfect sense because Android devices are becoming more popular in Canada… but more importantly is that Koodo’s competition already offers customers at least one Android in their lineup: Virgin Mobile has 3, Fido has 1, Mobilicity has 3 and Wind Mobile has 3.
Great news has come forth today. We can confidently say that Koodo will be releasing their first Android device shortly, the actual release date is still unknown. However, the device of choice that will be landing on Koodo is the LG Optimus One. As for specs, the LG Optimus One runs Android OS 2.2, has a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen (resolution of 320×480), a 600MHz processor, 3 megapixel camera (auto-focus and video capabilities), GPS, Wi-Fi and can create a Wi-Fi Hotspot for up to 8 devices, Bluetooth and can hold up to 32GB with a microSD card.
TELUS currently is selling this for $199.99 no-contract and as you can see by the screenshot there are several no-contract prices listed that range from $225 – $150.
