Rogers Wireless, Canada’s largest mobile carrier, has launched the Nokia Surge – a QWERTY S60 phone that’s already available in the US from AT&T.
The features of Nokia Surge include a 2.4 inch QVGA display, HSDPA, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, GPS, Bluetooth, 2.5mm headset jack, 2MP camera and MicroSD card support.
Rogers sells the Surge for as low as $29.99 with a 3-yr contract agreement. Without a contract, the phone costs $279.99.
According to PhoneModo at the Howard Forums (via Mobile Syrup), Rogers is also getting ready to launch the Nokia N86 8MP (as rumored before), and the LG Eve – which is actually the Android-based LG GW620.
The Nokia N86 should cost $99.99, while the LG Eve will be only $49.99 (both with 3-yr contract agreements).
Rogers will also offer the BlackBerry Bold 9000 in white for $99.99, and the Xperia X1 for a lower price than the current one – $99.99.
Apparently, the Canadian carrier will rebrand its smartphones and call them Webphones.
