Moto Rival at Telus

Telus this morning became only the second North American carrier to adopt the Motorola Rival on its network. The QWERTY slider is built for messaging with quick access to e-mail, Facebook and IM across Windows Live and Yahoo. It occupies the entry- to mid-range category among non-smartphones with a 2-megapixel camera, 3G data, a 3.5mm headphone jack and microSDHC support up to 8GB.

The Canadian carrier's edition hooks into Telus' Navigator service for assisted GPS and its mobile music store. Pricing starts at a relatively high $100 when the Rival is joined to a three-year plan but tops out at $300 for a contract-free version. Units should be in stock today.
