Fido adopts Jack, Q9h

Canadian carrier Fido has adopted two high-end smartphones, which are now on sale. The first is Samsung's BlackJack II, which like the version at Fido parent Rogers, has been simply renamed as the Jack. The phone features items like a QWERTY keyboard, a two megapixel camera and a built-in GPS receiver, with storage provided by 155MB of internal memory and external microSD cards. Its major highlight however may be support for Fido's burgeoning 3G service, which here allows 3.6Mbps HSDPA. The Jack costs as little as $225 CAD after a three-year contract, a data plan and a $100 rebate; contract-free, it can cost as much as $425.

Motorola's Q9h supports the same 3G speeds on Fido, and likewise features a QWERTY keyboard and microSD expansion. Internal memory is reduced to 96MB, but the phone's two-megapixel camera is equipped with flash, and it supports push e-mail delivery through several methods, including Research in Motion's BlackBerry Connect. The phone starts at $275 with the same restrictions as the equivalent Jack plan, and hits $525 without a contract. [via the::unwired]
