Labels: , , , , ,

Canada is looking like they just got another handset from Samsung, special thanks to Telus. This handset, dubbed the Elevate, is looking a lot like the Samsung T359, which is the T-Mobile :). I believe that this is pretty much the same phone, but it's really the T356. The handset's specs seem to line-up the same with its 2.6-inch QVGA display, a 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity. This handset is now available on Telus' site for $49.99 on a 3-year contract, $99.99 on a 2-year contract, $149.99 on a 1-year contract, and $199.99 contract-free. Check it out here.
