Some people – not many of us – like the cheap price of a signing a 3-year contract. Hopefully these will end soon… TELUS launched the Android-powered Motorola Backflip on April 28th (2 weeks ago) for the promo price of $99.99 on a 3-year contract, this has been now dropped in price to a reasonable $79.99 on a 3-year.
The other price plans have stayed the same at 2-year contract: $299.99; 1-year contract: $349.99 and No-contract: $399.99.
The only reason we can think of for the drop is to offer the Android OS 1.5 smartphone at the same price as the upcoming Bell Dext and Rogers Quench that will be both priced at the $79.99 mark.
