Telus Does Backflips

by Jordan Richardson on March 10, 2010

As Canada’s exclusive provider of Motorola’s Backflip, Telus is sitting pretty. The Backflip is an Android-powered smart phone and it will help boost Telus’ profile as a company offering cutting-edge products.

Telus announced that it would be airing the Backflip after Motorola announced the release of three Android-driven handsets to Canadian markets. With Telus getting what some critics have called the “ultimate smart phone,” this could mean big things for the service provider.

The device will be offered on the Telus 3G network and offers an innovative backward flip design that has many customers singing its praises.

Perhaps the biggest and boldest selling feature of the Motorola Backflip is the Motoblur technology. Motoblur is a convenient way to sync friends, posts, feeds, emails, updates, messages, and other types of content with updates that deliver them in convenient packages to the home screen. Motoblur is a great way for users to integrate content from Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, email services, and other networking sites.

The Backflip also features a 5.0 megapixel camera with 4x zoom, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, and Wi-Fi. We hear it can also, amazingly enough, place telephone calls.

“Leading the smart phone market means offering Canadians the best-in-class devices such as the acclaimed Motorola Backflip,” said David Fuller, senior vice-president of Product and Services at Telus. “Telus’ state-of-the-art 3G+ device line-up already includes industry leading Android-powered smart phones that helps Canadians stay connected and entertained on-the-go. We’re thrilled to add the Motorola Backflip to our list of Telus exclusive devices.”

Telus is the only major carrier in Canada to offer the major Android-powered phones. It also features the HTC and the Motorola Milestone.
