If you’re looking to sign a contract with Telus, then you may want to consider picking up the LG Optimus LTE, which is set to launch tomorrow. The Optimus LTE is a very capable Android smartphone and will feature blazing fast LTE speeds thanks to Telus’ new LTE network launching tomorrow as well.
The Optimus features Android 2.3, 4.5 inch touch screen True HD Display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear facing camera, and a front facing camera. The Optimus LTE will be upgraded to Android 4.0 at some point in the near future.
In terms of pricing, the LG smartphone can be had for $629 off contract, $579 on a one year contract, $529 on a two year contract, and $99 on a three year contract. Clearly, the three year contract option is the best, unless you do not want to be tied down to a long term contract — in which case the off contract option is probably the best.
