WIND Mobile released the LG Optimus 2X, a device that's regarded as fairly hard to beat in Canada, but they aren't forgetting their roots.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, and the handset runs on Android 2.2 Froyo. Other notable features include its HDMI port and FM radio connectivity, which both seem to be hit or miss for recently released smartphones.

If you're looking to pick up the Optimus 2X from WIND Mobile, it is now available for the decent price of $445 contract-free. Customers also have the option of subsidizing a part of the cost using the WINDtab, which will reduce it down to $295 upfront, with the remainder being paid off monthly via your typical invoice.

WIND Mobile seems to be focusing on versatility and a broader appeal more and more as time goes on, and this latest rumor definitely helps support that. Apparently, WIND Mobile will soon announce their WINDtab hardware payment option, which is very similar to KOODO's tab, and Virgin Mobile's relatively new SuperTab options. Basically, customers will be able to get up to $150 off of the purchase price of hardware, with a tab being kept of the outstanding amount. Each month, 10% of the customer's bill will be applied to the current tab amount owing, and customers have the option of paying off more if they choose. Users will also have the option of upgrading their device at any time, but will have to pay off the WINDtab balance before doing so.

No word yet on exactly when the WINDtab will be announced or launch, but we should see it relatively soon. It's certainly good to see carriers of all kinds focusing on bringing more options to their customers, and this should definitely help WIND Mobile appeal to those who want low costs but many options to choose from. What do you think about WIND Mobile introducing a tab system?
