Canadian Android fans can purchase their first Android 2.0 phone now that the Motorola Milestone (aka Droid) is on sale with TELUS. Customers can pick up the device for $199 with 3 year agreement or pay $599 for full price.
Telus just launched their HSPA+ network in November which now covers 93% of the Canadian population. The network offers theoretical peak download speeds of 21.6 Mbps, but a device like the Droid (HSPA 7.2) will see typical speeds that range from 4-6 Mbps (download) and 2-4 Mbps (upload). This is the same type of network that T-Mobile USA will launch in mid 2010 so I’m a little jealous Canada gets these blazing fast mobile speeds first.
If you live in Canada and pick this phone up, let us know how it performs on the Telus 3G+ network.
