LG Optimus 3G launched by Telus in Canada: CDMA flavored Android
Although it already offers the LG Optimus One, Telus has decided to release another version of it, dubbed LG Optimus 3G.
Unlike the Optimus One, which is a GSM / HSDPA phone, the Optimus 3G is a CDMA device (it’s actually a renamed Optimus S – launched by Sprint in the US last year).
With a new 3-yr agreement, Telus’ Optimus 3G can be yours for free (just like the Optimus One). The off-contract price of the new handset is, curiously, $529.99. That’s outrageously unjustified, since the Optimus One costs $199.99 off-contract, and has the same features, including Android 2.2, 3.2 inch HVGA display, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3.2MP camera.
Anyway, you can buy the Optimus 3G here at Telus.
