It looks as if the official Canadian release of the Nexus S is just around the corner. Samsung Canada has setup a page where you can submit your personal information to get the latest release updates. While Future Shop has just announced they have begun taking pre-orders for the Nexus S, you will however have to go get some exercise and go into an actual store to place the pre-order, they are asking for a $50 deposit. Though Future Shop or Samsung haven’t officially told anyone the exact release date, we have a good source who has confirmed to us that it should be April 7th.
We have also been told by an inside source at Future Shop that initially the Nexus S will only available to Rogers customers in the Eastern portion of the country, while Canadians out west will have to be with Telus in order to get the device.
It looks as if nearly all Canadian carriers will eventually carry the Nexus S, Rogers, Bell, Telus, Fido, Mobilicity, Koodo and WIND Mobile have all officially announced the availability of the Nexus S. This will be the first time a high powered smartphone like the Nexus S will be available on all carriers, usually top end phones are only available on the major 3 carriers in Canada. This is great news for Canadian consumers going forward as it will surely open up the prices and competition.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available to us.
