Fido Gains LG Xenon Touchscreen QWERTY Phone


Fido Gains LG Xenon Touchscreen QWERTY PhoneWith the noted exception of the Apple iPhone 3G and 3GS, the Fido brand is largely known for being a budget-oriented place for people who need basic cell phones. The current selection isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, so it’s good to see a decent phone join the mix. Here is the LG Xenon.

While the touchscreen display and slide-out QWERTY keyboard are reminiscent of the LG Neon, which is also available through Fido, the LG Xenon is a little more substantial both in stature and features.

It’s not quite a true smartphone, but you do get a widgetized home screen that you can customize as you see fit. It also has a built-in web browser, email client, IM client, quick access to Facebook, and threaded SMS. Other highlights include a 2.0MP camera, MP3 player, stereo Bluetooth, and microSD expansion.

Find the LG Xenon at your favorite Fido retailer for $75 with a two-year Fido agreement. Alternatively, you can find the same phone over at Rogers where they’re also selling a blue version.
