It is well known that the Canadian cellphone market sucks right now. We have effectively one provider
that does GSM, and so as a result they get a monopoly on all the pretty phones
. I have a pay as you go service right now that I'm pretty happy with, but I seriously ache for some Android-y goodness that I don't have to get a 3 year contract and pay out the nose for.
I've heard that there are some new players coming up in the Canadian GSM cellphone market in 2009-2010, in particular these these guys
(who may or may not be planning this
). People who are more plugged into the current state and future of Canadian mobile telephony, can you shed some light on the near future of GSM and Android phones in Canada? I'd really love to get an Android GSM phone with reasonable rates and a sane contract length.
