Best Buy has given Canadian folks who can’t wait to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 something to cheer about. It was only yesterday that we learned about the availability of the phablet on Telus, which is expected to start selling it from October 30 and now we get some sort of confirmation of its price on several carriers.
As listed on the retailer’s website, the 16GB Galaxy Note 2 will be offered for $149.99 with a three-year contract on Telus and Bell. It’s a great price for a quad-core device with a 5.5-inch display, right? Now, this is where things get rather confusing. The price for Rogers variant is listed as $249.99. Eh?
Before we discuss the inconsistency, let’s move on to the next set of information. It appears customers won’t be able pre-order the Jelly Bean device online just yet. You’ll have to make do with the traditional way of visiting the brick-and-mortar stores yourself to make a $50 down payment. While only the grey version of the Galaxy Note 2 is listed on the website, we’re sure that the white variant will be offered as well.
Some thoughts: we’re not sure whether the Telus and Bell price is accurate and whether Rogers would really be levying a $100 premium on its variant of Galaxy Note 2. Guess we’ll find out soon enough come October 24 – though we don’t mind getting some clarification from Best Buy or any of the wireless carriers much, much sooner.
Do you think the prices are accurate? Would the Galaxy Note 2 be really offered for $149.99 on contract?
