Motorola Canada and TELUS announced the debut of the Motorola CHARM, a touch screen smartphone designed to help Canadians live life in the fast lane. Packing a social networking punch, Motorola CHARM features the popular Android  operating system, as well as an enhanced version of Motorola's Android experience, MOTOBLUR, in a slim, compact design.

CHARM offers the socially inclined all the features they'd expect in a smartphone including a full QWERTY keyboard and 2.8 inch touch screen. Motorola CHARM also has a unique BACKTRACK navigation pad, located on the back of the smartphone directly behind the home screen, which works like a laptop touch panel, enabling an unobstructed view of the screen as you scroll through the web, texts, e-mails and news feeds.

Incorporating the Android operating system, Motorola CHARM integrates all Google's powerful applications and services, including Gmail, Google Search and Google Maps, as well as access to over 70,000 fun and useful applications via Android Market.

"We're very excited to bring a stylish new social smartphone to Canadians," said Rick Gadd, Vice President and Sales General Manager, Mobile Devices, Motorola Canada. "With Motorola's enhanced MOTOBLUR service, it's easier than ever before to manage and customize your relationships on your handset."

"At TELUS we believe that each smartphone user is unique. They want a device that will provide an individual experience to connect with the people they want, the way they want, on a network that will follow them wherever they go in Canada," said David Fuller, Chief Marketing Officer, TELUS Customer Solutions. "The Motorola CHARM delivers this in a big way making this device a powerful addition to TELUS' back-to-school smartphone line-up, available on Canada's fastest* mobile network."
