In just a few days from now, Canadian Android fans will be able to get their hands on Samsung’s 2012 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S3. The device was supposed to be available from all local carriers on June 20, but stock shortages determined them to postpone the launch to June 27.
Meanwhile, more reports from Canada revealed that Best Buy is taking in-store Galaxy S3 pre-orders again after discontinuing them a few weeks ago, and that Bell has started receiving Galaxy S3 shipments. That was a clear indication that other mobile operators selling the device in the country must have also started to receive their Galaxy S3 units around the same time.
But these aren’t the only good news coming from Canada, as it looks like Galaxy S3 fans may end up getting a free device from one of the main carriers in the region, if they qualify.
Phandroid reports that NCIX.com is offering a free Bell Galaxy S3 to anyone that signs a new 3-year contract with the carrier of at least CAD$50/month. That’s a pretty sweet deal, even though you’d be inking a 3-year prison term with the carrier. In fact, it’s certainly better than getting the same Galaxy S3 from a different carrier/retailer for $159.99 with a 3-year contract.
Where are you buying your Galaxy S3 from, Canadians?
