Fido Gains LG Xenon Touchscreen QWERTY Phone

Fido Gains LG Xenon Touchscreen QWERTY PhoneWith the noted exception of the Apple iPhone 3G and 3GS, the Fido brand is largely known for being a budget-oriented place for people who need basic cell phones. The current selection isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, so it’s good to see a decent phone join the mix. Here is the LG Xenon.

While the touchscreen display and slide-out QWERTY keyboard are reminiscent of the LG Neon, which is also available through Fido, the LG Xenon is a little more substantial both in stature and features.

It’s not quite a true smartphone, but you do get a widgetized home screen that you can customize as you see fit. It also has a built-in web browser, email client, IM client, quick access to Facebook, and threaded SMS. Other highlights include a 2.0MP camera, MP3 player, stereo Bluetooth, and microSD expansion.

Find the LG Xenon at your favorite Fido retailer for $75 with a two-year Fido agreement. Alternatively, you can find the same phone over at Rogers where they’re also selling a blue version.

    I’ve had my LG Xenon for the last year, but I only lately discovered this web site, Up right up until now, I certainly not genuinely looked into utilizing the telephone as anything but a voice and SMS device, but although it was out for repair I was using a Motorola KRZR as a back-up and I definitely hated it. I’m also a former employee of Rogers Wireless, exactly where I had been a member in the Network Operations group; they would be the ones accountable to the inter/intra-site transport, switching and base-station network. Though we in no way got to play with too much consumer hardware, I do know for any actuality there exists ‘un-branded’ firmware obtainable for each cell phone out there. Ahead of a carrier decides to carry any mobile phone they get a base design in the manufacturer that they demo and put through tests – acquiring a single of these demo units would possibly be simpler stated than carried out even so. Most of the time, they just get passed of to buddies or family members who do not even understand that the telephone is unlocked and unbranded.
