As some of you may know, I'm lead advisor at the Uxbridge Mobile Shop location and Koodo is our #1 seller, hands down. Canada-wide calling is key because virtually everything in the Durham region is long distance from each other. We're in a rural area with lots of farmers, stable workers, construction workers, truck drivers, etc etc so a lot of guys have been asking for rugged smartphones and/or unlimited calling plans with long distance in Canada included. Koodo's the perfect fit but there's no phone for them! Telus and Koodo don't serve Uxbridge area codes anymore, port requests get denied all the time and it's costed me some sales. We end up having to do Toronto (416/647), which is then long distance to everything outside of Uxbridge. It causes headaches. Koodo's reception is also better in this area compared to Rogers/Fido so they basically rule these lands. I've switched a ton of people over. I digress, I would love if Koodo picked up the Galaxy Rugby LTE. It retails for $460 on Telus so if Koodo could grab it for a reduced cost (maybe $250 on Tab) I would sell it like no tomorrow! We've done like 3 in the past 2 weeks alone on Telus for 2 stable girls and an electrician, imagine if Koodo got a hold of it with their awesome plans?? - 1.5 GHz dual-core processor - 400x800 4-inch AMOLED display - 1 GB of RAM - 5MP camera with flash - Android 4.0 with Touchwiz UI and Nature UX - Military-grade specifications for durability It's better than the S II X in certain areas. However, the point of this phone is its ruggedness. The perfect blend of brains and brawn, it's built to military-grade specs, which make it shock proof, dust proof, solar radiation proof, and it's even WATERPROOF up to 1 metre for half an hour. You can literally use the phone underwater. It's crazy. http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/mobile/mobile-phones/smartphones/SGH-I547ZKMBMC
I implore Koodo to grab this phone. I know they don't announce phones until they're ready to release them, but if anyone would listen, there's definitely a market for this phone. Please consider it. I would sell a ton.
