Samsung m620 at Telus

Echoing the steps of its American neighbor Sprint, Canadian cell provider today began carrying the m620 music phone in its stable. Better known as the Samsung UpStage or the F300 Ultra Music, the device includes the characteristic dual-sided design that flips to one side for calls and text messaging and another for media playback and Internet use. What separates the m620 from other versions is software, Telus notes; in addition to accessing the Telus Mobile Music Store, the device taps into the provider's Mobile Radio service that provides 22 XM radio stations streaming over the Internet.

Internal features are also identical to the UpStage and deliver a 1.3-megapixel camera, a microSD slot with up to 2GB of storage for music and videos, and EVDO broadband. Like Sprint, Telus packs a 64MB microSD card for basic memory as well as stereo earphones and a battery wallet that extends the phone's call time to over 6 hours. Telus discounts the phone to $150 on a three-year plan but will sell the phone for $350 outside of any commitments.
