Telus takes Motorola Q9c
In addition to the BlackBerry 8330, Telus has also introduced the Motorola Q9c, an evolution of the popular Q9 smartphone. The Q9c is a CDMA companion to the GSM-based Q9h, and sports EVDO broadband, built-in GPS functions, and a 1.3-megapixel camera. As with the 8330, the Q9c can access apps and information through various Pocket Express portals.
Bluetooth allows data and stereo connections, and a miniSD slot provides up to 32GB of extra storage. The phone is available on a sliding scale, starting at $450 without contract, and shifting to as little as $150 on a three-year contract.
