Canada is finally getting more Android love with our carriers! We’ve reported stories on Rogers and Bell launching the Samsung Galaxy, as well as the offers you may find on it at your local Future Shop or Best Buy. Let’s add Telus to the hype for Fall Android releases as they wind up to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate.
Although Rogers and Bell are launching the Galaxy this weekend, Telus does not specify a date, rather “Coming Soon” is seen on their headlines page. Telus has had great success with its currently available HTC Desire, and will likely launch the Galaxy S Fascinate before the holiday shopping season starts to take off. Pricing will likely be similar to what we see with Rogers, which is around $150 – $180 CAN on a 3 year contract.
Samsung is really getting its products out there across the carriers to ensure everybody, regardless of which carrier you may be locked into, can get their hands on the Galaxy S family.
Here’s a hands on look at the new Samsung Galaxy tablet coming to Canada via Rogers Wireless and Bell Mobility. One easily noticeable difference is the color on the back-plate…it’s carbon black instead of white!
We don’t know when the Galaxy Tablet will officially be made available either at Rogers or Bell, but we do know it’ll be near the end of November 2010. Let’s hope its sooner, seeing as it’s major launch in the US is the beginning of November.
Check out the video below for a sneak peek!
Bell Canada, one of the top wireless providers up north, is getting a new phone: the HTC Desire Z. Known on T-Mobile USA as the HTC G2, we can assume the device will come to Bell Canada with all the same specs, which include:
- Android 2.2
- 800MHz Qualcomm processor
- 4GB ROM memory
- 512 MB RAM
- 3.7″ capacitive touchscreen
- 5MP flash camera
There have been rumors that the HTC Desire Z may be coming to Canada this year, specifically to Bell. Rumors are becoming reality as we see in the photo above.
This confirms that Bell will be selling the HTC Desire Z for $499CAN. One can only assume it’ll be available very soon, but rumors dictate an early November launch.
The HTC Desire Z ships with Android 2.2, full QWERTY keyboard under screen hinge, 5 megapixel camera with flash, 720p HD video, Wi-Fi and an 800MHz Qualcomm CPU.
So, you live in Canada and want to get your hands on a Samsung Galaxy Tab, eh? Well, thanks to Rogers and Bell, you’ll be able to do just that. Samsung has announced they will be offering the Android 2.2 tablet in Canada later this year, but have given no indication as to exactly when, or for how much.
Continue after the break for the full presser from Samsung.
As Samsung continues it’s universal domination with a single handset, it looks like Bell is the latest carrier to be assimilated – er, graced with the presence, that is… of the Samsung Galaxy S, this time shining through as the Vibrant (like T-Mobile).
The wireless carrier is offering the phone for $149 on a 3-year contract, or $499.95 without a commitment. Another pretty cool deal: They’re offering up a pair of tickets, airfare and accommodations to go see Lady Gaga if you purchase one soon.
So what are you waiting for? Go check out the deal at the source link listed below.

The Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung’s seemingly innocent attempt at taking over the mobile universe, is now on it’s way to another carrier. Looks like Bell will be carrying the increasingly popular handset for $149.99 on a new 3 year contract. The handset coming to Bell seems to be the full on Galaxy S experience, complete with front facing camera, instead of the pseudo-complete version at T-Mobile, slated the Vibrant.
The handset can be purchased contract-free for $499.99. Not a bad price in our opinion, considering everything you get under the hood. The device has been announced to be available ala Bell August 6th. For official pricing and date, check out the source link below.

Like manufacturer, like carrier… that is how the old saying goes, right? Well, either way, Bell Canada has decided that Samsung has the right idea, and is now offering a free Samsung Vibrant every day until August 6th. Entry is simple: just sign up over at Bell Canada’s registration page (Canadians only?), and then sit back, relax, and cross your fingers.

Bell Canada has officially announced that it, too will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S, slated to be named “Vibrant”, in the coming months. If this device (considering it holds the same moniker as T-Mobile’s version) is similar to others, we can be expecting the standard specs: Android 2.1, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5MP camera, 4″ super AMOLED display, etc.
Stay tuned for a release date, as the official page doesn’t tell us much.
