North American carriers and electronics retailers are having a tough time keeping up with Galaxy S3 demand, which must certainly please Samsung, as the company expects to sell quite a few million Galaxy S3 units this year.
U.S. smartphone buyers interested in the Galaxy S3 already know that AT&T and Sprint have pushed back actual in-store launches, while Verizon will only get the handset in early July. On its part, T-Mobile is currently offering the most expensive Galaxy S3 in the region, and the mobile operator does not even offer 4G LTE support to Galaxy S3 buyers at this time, or anyone else for that matter.
Canadian buyers [...]
Unlike certain carriers in the US that are denying future owners of the Galaxy S3 their Samsung-given right of 50GB of free Dropbox storage, all Canadian folks will get their free 2-year cloud storage upon purchasing the Galaxy S3.
Mobile Syrup has gotten in touch with Samsung directly and received the following confirmation:
“New GS III users will receive a basic 2GB of free space with Dropbox (It is permanent). When they create their own Dropbox account or link their existing account to Samsung Apps, the user will receive 48GB more space through a promotional offer, for a total of 50GB. This is available for 2yrs. “
So yes, the Dropbox offer will stand [...]
In just a short paragraph, Samsung has just crushed the dreams of countless Galaxy S3 fans in Canada. OK, not really crushed their dreams, but still, I bet it’s irritating to have to wait an extra week to get the S3.
Here’s the full statement:
Due to unprecedented global demand for the highly anticipated Samsung GALAXY S III, with more than 9 million carrier pre-orders to date, the date of availability for purchase of this device in Canada, is now June 27th. In advance of the GALAXY S III availability date, most carriers and retailers are offering customers the chance to register on-line for updates, and some partners are offering their customers the option to [...]
Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has been up for pre-order from the three major Canadian carriers for a while now, with Rogers, Bell and Telus all offering the new super-phone at the same price. The 16 GB base version of the S3 is set to go for $159.99 with a three-year carrier agreement, and the chances to see anyone lowering that price tag were modest, to say the least.
That’s until today, when Quebec-based Videotron started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S3 and, surprise, surprise, the phone starts at $99.95. As you might imagine, things will not stand as they are for a long time and the “unit will only be available for the low price of $99.95 for a limited [...]
Released in the United States a little while back, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet was expected to start shipping in Canada by the end of this month. Future Shop, the only Canadian retailer taking pre-orders for the new 10-incher from Samsung, announced June 22 as a release date, but for some unknown reason you’ll have to wait a bit more to get your hands on it.
The new shipping date is July 6, and the bad news doesn’t end here. Future Shop is currently listing a limited number of tablets available, so you might end up waiting even after July 6 if you’ve pre-ordered or planning to pre-order the 10-incher.
There are only seven Galaxy Tabs [...]
Samsung’s Galaxy S3 was made official in Canada exactly one week ago, at which point we found out the phone’s pricing and exact release date. We also expected to see Canadian carriers taking pre-orders for the S3 and, while some (Rogers and Telus) did exactly so, Bell and SaskTel were left out of the mix.
The waiting is fortunately now over for Bell customers, who can finally make sure they have a cozy place in (front of the) line for Samsung’s new flagship phone. That’s the good news of our today’s report, while the bad news (yeah, there’s bad news, too) is that the 32 GB model is not yet up for pre-order.
You can therefore either go for the 16 GB version of [...]
After hitting yesterday 28 countries across Europe and the Middle East, the hugely anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3 is finally closing in on its North American release. We have some good news for Canadian tech enthusiasts waiting for the S3, which could be interpreted as good news for Samsung fans in the US.

Leaving aside all the Galaxy S3 madness for a while, let’s see what the Canadian owners of Samsung’s ex-flagship, the Galaxy S2, can look forward to these days.
Canadian users have been waiting for quite a while for an upgrade that was initially scheduled for April. Fortunately, Bell has finally started to make its customers happy. The Android 4.0 update should have started hitting your handhelds yesterday, so by now, you might find a very pleasant surprise waiting for you on the S2.
The upgrade is brought to you over-the-air, so you shouldn’t panic if there’s no change on your device’s software at the break of dawn. Instead, you should check for a [...]
Motorola’s Motoluxe low-end Android-based smartphone was unveiled in January and hit Europe in late February without creating much fuss, making us all think that it would end up ignored by most tech users worldwide.
However, the handheld must’ve been doing something right on the Old Continent, because it has just been announced as officially coming to Canada. With no exact release date or pricing attached to its name, the Motoluxe will certainly be looking to charm those of you who are on a tight budget.
The 4-incher sports a TFT FWVGA display with 480 x 854 pixels resolution and is powered by an 800 MHz Qualcomm MSM processor with an Adreno 200 GPU. Suspected [...]
