Fido handsets revealed

An image that surfaced last week reveals the approximate release dates and pricing information for several handsets that are coming to Canadian wireless provider Fido, a subsidiary of Rogers. The Samsung F266 is due for a February 10th release, priced at $150 CAD contract-free, or $25 on a two-year term. Little is known about this handset, which would make its debut at Fido in North America. It has a camera, music playback capabilities, Bluetooth and an LCD screen with 176x240 resolution.

According to the leaked image, the Sony Ericsson T303 will be launched early in March, priced at $110 unlocked or $10 on a two-year term. The entry-level slider phone has a 1.3-megapixel camera, just 8MB of onboard memory and no external card slot and relies on a built-in FM radio for any form of audio entertainment.

The LG TE365 is an adaptation of the KS360 clamshell QWERTY phone that is already coming to AT&T as the Neon. As such, it is expected to sport the same QWERTY keyboard and 2.4-inch touchscreen with virtual keypad that allows the dialing of numbers when the handset is closed. There should also be a 2-megapixel camera along with Bluetooth support and an FM radio. Fido is expected to get the handset at the end of March, with pricing set at $175 contract-free or $50 with a two-year term.

Finally, the carbon-neutral Motorola W233 is due for an April 22nd release, priced at just $70 contract-free or $10 on a two-year term. The phone has dual-band GSM support and sports a media player that gets content from a memory card in its microSD slot. [via HowardForums]
