Alcatel Lume phone is just $79

The other day I shared the announcement of the new Go-Fi device by Alcatel, and you would have noticed the announcement included a phone.  I didn't talk about it because I didn't have any further details.  Well, the phone is now available and is just $79 on prepaid plans with Telus or Koodo

For $79 you're not going to get a lot of phone, so keep that in mind.
