Amp'd Mobile Canada

Telus today helped introduce Amp'd Mobile Canada. One of the first virtual networks to operate in the country, Amp'd is like its American counterpart in emphasizing Internet access and media over typical calling. In Canadian form, the service will depend on Telus' phone network and will have streaming TV clips from both familiar American networks such as The Comedy Network and Canada-specific stations, including MuchMusic.

Set to launch today, Amp'd Mobile's pricing has not yet been updated but is expected to be competitive, with the emphasis on relatively affordable Internet plans. However, the company is now officially selling the Amp'd RAZR V3M, a customized version of Motorola's music-oriented clamshell. The Amp'd version adds a 256MB microSD card as well as a custom black-and-red color scheme. It sells for $300 Canadian ($257 US) without a contract.
