If you live in Canada and have been waiting for news of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 coming to you, here it is. Sort of. While three carriers have announced that they will be carrying the Note 2, there is no word as of yet on when or how much it will cost.
So far, TELUS, Mobilicity and Wind Mobile have announced that they will introduce the phone this fall, and it's possible that Bell and Rogers may follow suit. The announcements released have been on the vague side, but with the Note 2 seeing the beginning of its European launch in the coming weeks and being scheduled for a November release in the U.S, it's easy to assume that the Canadian release will be sometime this fall.
In case you need a refresher course on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 features a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, 8-megapixel rear and 1.9-megapixel front cameras, a 3,100 mAh battery, and up to 64 GB of internal storage, supplemented by a MicroSD slot that can add another 64 GB. As if that wasn't enough, it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
As you can see, the Galaxy Note 2 is a lot of phone. So much that some users may see that as a down side; you don't have a screen that big without a fairly large device, hence the term “phablet.” Still, if performance means everything to you, there's currently no better choice.
Canadians, are you going to be picking up a Note 2? Which carrier?
