Koodo starts selling Samsung Galaxy S3 for $550

by: David GonzalesDecember 1, 2012

The best-selling Galaxy S3 smartphone from Samsung is now available through Koodo Mobile in Canada for $550 outright. The device can also be purchased through Koodo’s fluctuating Tab option, and those who buy it through Koodo retail locations can expect to receive a $100 bonus gift at the time of purchase.

According to Koodo’s official Samsung Galaxy S3 product page, the phone’s list of features includes a 1.5GHz dual core processor, a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen display, an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, support for up to 64GB of external storage, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Koodo is selling the Pebble Black version.

As you may already know, the Galaxy S3 is already available for purchase through other carriers in Canada — such as Telus and Rogers. However, Koodo’s selling price is markedly cheaper. It’s also worth noting that there are a few other high-end Android handsets available at even lower prices. In any case, the Galaxy S3 is one formidable model that is considered by many as one of the best Android-flavored phones available on the market right now.

    Why would I buy this? I can get a unlock S3 for the same price and use it on any carrier. Koodo need to reinvent itself and make this phone around $300-$350. There are so many other phone providers out there..Especially when Google get’s their act together and gets the Nexus 4 back in stock for $359 CDN, unlocked.
