Koodo Mobile to Launch Motorola Rival


Our Koodo Ninja has informed us that the Motorola Rival will be launching in the coming weeks.  The internal document reveals the Rival will be launching at retail locations on either August 17th or 24th.

Pricing for Koodo’s newest QWERTY keyboard was not detailed in the memo.  Parent company, Telus, did launch the Rival a last week for $299.99 no term; so expect Koodo’s to retail around $200 or $50 on the Tab.
