Early Device Upgrade Fee (EDUF) introduced at Telus

telus-upgrades

Unlike our American counterparts with their typical two-year contracts, us Canadians usually get stuck with a longer three-year service agreement if we want the full hardware subsidy on a new cell phone. That’s a long time to wait between handsets, so Telus is making it easier for you to upgrade mid-contract with EDUF.

Ever since Telus decided to embrace HSPA, its assortment of smartphones has become much more desirable in my books. One of the newest phones bound for Telus is the Nokia E72.

As a proud owner of the Nokia E71 myself, I guess you could say that I’m a little biased toward this news, say, but no more so than an iPhone owning news reporter

android2.1

Last month, we took a look at the recently released Motorola Milestone. The hardware seemed pretty good, but it was still running an older version of Android. Well, there’s good news for all the Milestone owners in the audience, because Telus is ready to give you an upgrade.

You won’t be able to get the upgrade over-the-air (OTA), but a free upgrade is a free upgrade. You can now get Android 2.1 loaded onto your Motorola Milestone. The process is reasonably straightforward.

BlackBerry service coming to Koodo Canada?

koodomobile-bb.200

The approach taken by the so-called “budget” carriers in Canada is quite interesting. They start out saying that they want to be as affordable as possible, but they slowly creep up into the territory of their parent companies. It seems that the Telus-offshoot Koodo Mobile could be expanding its business beyond their initial focus of cheap phones with cheap plans. They got a little better with some QWERTY-packing “feature” phones, but it seems that the latest plans are hinting at BlackBerry service too. That’s quite a step up from a simple keyboard-equipped “dumbphone.”

motorola-milestone-tel-1

It may have taken a little time to find its legs, but the Google Android platform is really starting to take off. One of the hottest handsets to feature this operating system is the Motorola Milestone, available now through Telus Mobility.

In many ways, you could say that it’s the same as the Motorola Droid through Verizon, but you don’t get the MOTOBLUR user interface, you would have to wait for the Motorola Backflip in that case. The Milestone is configured to use the Telus 3G+ network so its very fast.

The Android evolution continues north of the border. You can already get your hands on such handsets as the HTC Hero, but you will soon have access to the winner of the 2010 CNET Best of Consumer Electronics Show award. The Motorola BackFlip is indeed enroute to Telus Mobility.

This isn’t the first Google Android phone to be sold through Telus, of course, nor is it the first Motorola-sourced Android phone. In addition to the Motorola Milestone, you will be able to flip out with the Motorola BackFlip.

Motorola Milestone not coming to Telus on February 18th after all?

moto-milestone-TELUS

We had high hopes. While our wish for a January launch got dashed, we figured that the Motorola Milestone would hit the Telus lineup by mid-February. Now, it seems like the Android-touting smartphone has hit another delay. At least, that’s what a change on the Best Buy website is leading us to believe.
