SaskTel already Tweeted that they will release the Samsung Galaxy S II. However, today they officially wrote it all down in a press release that it’ll be available “in the coming weeks”. The same formal info as Bell, but a couple differences. Missing from the SaskTel branding of this Android 2.3 device is the “4G” status (Bell will call it the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G). Next, Bell didn’t give any pricing but SaskTel did! No word on the no-contract price but the “Samsung GALAXY S II is available at any SaskTel Store or SaskTel Authorized Dealer for $79.99 on a three year voice and data term”. Perhaps this is what we’ll see Bell come in at too.

    What??No Way, where do I sign??

    wow… that’s a really good price! Hopefully that puts the no-contract price at below $600

  • Nasir

    I have to say that price has shocked me, hopefully its right. I was expecting at a minimum 149.99 on a term. The Nexus S was 99.99 and this is cheaper wow.

    I have heard good things about this phone and it should sellout quick at that price point.

    • Senk

      Agreed. I didn’t think there was any chance in hell the S2 was going to be priced under $100 on a 3 year contract.

  • MisterX

    sweet…..hopefully it’ll be cheaper on virgin mobile then…

    $79.99 on a 3 year contract with voice and data is a sweet deal. Definitely an eye catcher for those who are looking towards purchasing the phone on a contract.

  • TheTigerTek

    That’s a great price for one of the best phones in the market.

    This will really kill iphone if their iphone 5 is at 160+. even iphone 4. Who the heck is gonna pay $160 for something that has anteena problem and also getting old? This one is far faster.

    Moreover, before it used to be like $10 difference with the first galaxy, but at 79, it does make a huge difference. Plus galaxy being first into game, it rocks.

    Sensation going to have hard time. Doubt people will pay more just for the effects vs galaxy which has better hardware in every way

    How come it’s a good deal?
    Money is in the contract terme not the phone price…

    A three years contract is 80×36=2880$$$ the phone price at 79$ represent only 3% only of the total cost! It could be even at 0$ and carriers will make money with new and existing customers….

      If you buy the phone outright you will still be paying the same amount for a plan so why complain for subsidization.
      People complain just to complain, its retarded
      Don’t buy a phone if you can’t swallow the price

  • Katelyn

    I’m with dainfo on this one. Subsidies are good except for the fact that they FORCE you to put it on a data plan. It has wifi and if I want to only use it for calling and texting other than when I have wifi then that’s what I should be able to do but they make this phone seem like a good buy and then force 3 years of $60+ a month on you when you don’t need it.

    If I didn’t have to put a data plan on it I’d buy it outright and pay $13/month prepaid and be way better off.

    Is this phone beyond amzanig? Heck yeah.Is it going to do well among average consumers? No.The average non-techy person wants a smartphone they hear about all the time, and the iPhone is what they hear about, because it’s the most popular, and it’s the easiest to use.
