Motorola Charm with Android 2.1 launched by Telus in Canada

Sorry, T-Mobile USA customers, but you won’t be the first to get the Motorola Charm, because Telus customers over in Canada can buy the Android 2.1 smartphone as of yesterday.

Running Android 2.1 with MotoBlur, the Charm is – in case you don’t know yet – a candybar with a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display and a full QWERTY keypad.

The Charm also comes with a touch-sensitive “BACKTRACK navigation pad, located on the back of the smartphone directly behind the home screen, which works like a laptop touch panel, enabling an unobstructed view of the screen as you scroll through the web, texts, e-mails and news feeds.”

Other features: 7 homescreens that can be personalized, resizable widgets, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, CrystalTalk PLUS technology “for enhanced audio and call quality”, 3MP camera, and a 2GB memory card in the box.

Motorola Charm’s prices at Telus are as following:

  • No term – $249.99
  • 1 year term – $199.99
  • 2 year term – $149.99
  • 3 year term – $29.99

You can buy the Charm online here at Telus.

The exact launch date of Motorola Charm via T-Mobile USA is still not known, but it’s rumored that the carrier will offer the smartphone starting August 25. It’s coming soon on T-Mo’s website anyway.
