Vidéotron, a subsidiary of Quebecor Media Company, today unleashed new airwaves on to the people of Québec. The wireless service provider's President and CEO, Robert Dépatie, is promising customers, "the best possible customer experience through one-stop shopping to make life easier for consumers. Not only is our offering highly advantageous in this respect but it is particularly attractive for our existing customers, who can get exceptional rates. We remain true to our policy of offering substantial discounts to customers who choose our service bundles."
To coincide with the launch of the new network, Vidéotron is releasing 12 handsets, including four firsts for Canada. One of those is Google's own bread and butter, the Nexus One. Along with the Nexus One, Motorola will also be on board, shipping the XT720. Both the Nexus One and Motorola XT720 will ship with Froyo. With these devices launching with Froyo from the get-go, Vidéotron will become the first Canadian provider to carry a phone with Froyo preloaded.
And for those of you still wanting to purchase the pseudo dead Nexus One here in the states, it is now available... again. It is now in stock again for you developers.[Canada News Wire] Thanks, cracktight!
