Canadian budget wireless carrier Mobilicity today announced they will be “carrying” the Android-based Google Nexus One phone. We know Google took the Nexus One off the distribution line for wireless carriers around the world this summer, and Mobilicity being an unlocked, outright purchase resale provider of mobile phones leads me to believe they’ve just bought a crapload of Nexus Ones from Google and are simply reselling them to their network of customers. The phone will set you back $549.99 CAD and is “available soon” in Mobilicity stores. Just a refresher, the Nexus One has a 3.7-inch touch-screen display and 1GHz Qualcom Snapdragon core processor.
Wireless carrier to debut its first Android device; continues to enhance handset lineup with popular smartphones for unlimited data customers
Toronto, ON – September 30, 2010 – Mobilicity today announced it is carrying the Nexus OneTM by GoogleTM smartphone, a state-of-the art AndroidTM 2.2 device known for its sleek form factor, fast performance and Google enhancements for seamless integration with Gmail, Google Earth and live desktop wallpapers.

Available soon at select Mobilicity stores for $549.99, the Nexus One features a spectacular, 3.7-inch brilliant touch-screen display and a 1GHz Qualcom Snapdragon core processor – the fastest on the market. Considered a multi-tasker’s dream come true, the device is designed to simultaneously run 3D graphics, online applications and multiple programs running in the background without slowing down.
The Android device also features Google’s voice-activated keypad – voice recognition software that automatically converts speech to text messages, email, social networking updates and built-in GPS and mapping applications.
