Telus Launching LG Optimus Black “Skype Edition”


So here is a news i’d never thought i would hear, Telus is about to release a new LG Optimus Black called “Skype Edition”, Skype which was bought recently by Microsoft, but the phone will run Android.

The device has a 4inch NOVA touchscreen,with Android 2.2 Froyo, upgradeable to 2.3 Gingerbread, 9.2 mm thin, 1500 mAh Li-On battery, 5mpx rear camera with flash and a 2 mpx front facing camera and Wi-Fi.

“TELUS and Skype have signed a deal that makes this the “first Skype-branded phone on the Canadian market” and comes pre-loaded with a Skype app where users can download the latest version of Skype Mobile (via the Android Market).”

Now thats a “well done” deal, haha (sarcasm), between Telus and Microsoft, using Android as operating system for the phone. Id like to hear some comments on this subject.
