We reported to you earlier today that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is ready to launch at Rogers Wireless in Canada. The site to view the tab was unavailable at the time of the article, but the page is now live! Which means the Samsung Galaxy Tab is confirmed and available for in-store purchase at most Rogers locations nation-wide beginning tomorrow, November 16th 2010. Best thing to do would be to call ahead and make sure the location you wish to hit up actually has them in stock.
RedBoard has confirmed and loaded up a video for the launch for your viewing pleasure here.
Rogers Wireless up north in Canada is the first Mobile Carrier to offer the Samsung Galaxy S Tab running Android 2.2. The Galaxy Tab is available on the following price plans:
- $674.99 – no Contract
- $599.99 on a 1-year
- $564.99 on a 2-year
- $539.99 on a 3-year
Finally available in Canada after seeing everyone in the US launching! I was starting to get jealous.
Fear not Canada, as the Rogers order page is currently unavailable for pre-order here, it should be up either today or tomorrow, and we’ll let you know when!
Rogers has made it official, they’re now offering the Dell Streak to customers through subsidized pricing! We had reported Dell offering the SIM free version of the Streak to operate solely on Rogers Wireless networks, directly on Dell.ca product page.
Rogers will be offering the Dell Streak for the following prices;
- $149.99 on a 3-year term contract
- $399.99 on a 2-year
- $549.99 on a 1-year
- $549.99 on monthly contract
- $599.99 no contract
If you’re looking to pick one up through Rogers, you can visit their product page by clicking the link below.
When we brought you Roger’s Q4 roadmap last week, it included the fact that they were getting the Dell Streak. Well, Dell has made goon on that promise, and has put up a Dell Streak product page on the Dell.ca website.
As it stands, this SIM free phone will only be usable on Roger’s network, and has an outright price of $549.99. There has been no announcement yet about what this may cost with a new contract, but chances are it will be in the $150-$200 range. Stay tuned.
To our readers up north, here is some Rogers news to keep you warm on this chilly November night. First of all, they are adding a slew of new devices, including the Android powered Dell Streak for $149.99 with a new contract.
In addition to this, Rogers is going to introduce data sharing plans, which will be available as follows:
- $55, $65, and $70 shareable voice/data bundles
- $30, $45 and $60 shareable data plans
This is certainly a pretty cool option, and something I would definitely like to see implemented in the US (especially with the Galaxy Tab almost upon us).
So, now that we know these sharing data plans are coming, we’d like to hear from you! Would you be more willing to purchase a tablet if you could share your existing data plan instead of having to start a second contract? Leave us a comment below and let your voice be heard!
Bell should be launching the Samsung Galaxy Tab on or by November 16th. Pricing is seen as a little under what we were told Rogers is listing prices for, at $649.95, which is good for competition.
The latest Canadian carrier to launch the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone is now Virgin Mobile Canada. They plan to launch the device on November 15th, and although no specific pricing has been laid out, we’re confident it will be similar to other Canadian carriers, such as Rogers, for $179.99 on a 3-year contract.
We’ll hear more very soon!
Sorry about the picture quality here, so I’ll sum it up for everyone. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is coming to Rogers Wireless and Bell Canada very soon (I suspect after Nov 11th 2010), and although no official pricing has been announced, a tipster was able to send this to MobileSyrup.
Here is the pricing listed, which may be subject to change prior to launch;
- $674.99 No Contract
- $599.99 with 1-year
- $564.99 with 2-year
- $539.99 with 3-year
We’ll let you know when an official date is set!
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.
