Two new phones are now available at Rogers - the Samsung Flight and LG Pop.
The Samsung Flight is a slider phone that packs 2.8-inch 240x320 resolution touchscreen complemented by a full QWERTY keypad. It also features a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, media player, and supports microSD cards with capacities of up to 16GB. The Samsung Flight is retailing for $69.99 on a 3-year contract, $119.99 on a 2-year contract, $219.99 for a single year, and $274.99 outright purchase. There’s no WiFi or HSPA connectivity on this baby, but this should be nice option for those looking for an affordable touchscreen-equipped messaging phone.
The LG Pop GD510, meanwhile, sports 3-inch 240x400 touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and microSD card slot (up to 16GB). This actually debuted last September 2009, and now, it’s finally here in Canada. The LG Pop can be had for as little as $19.99 on a 3-yr contract, and is priced at $69.99 on a 2-year contract, $124.99 for a single year, and $174.99 outright purchase.
