Now that the uber-powerful Samsung Galaxy S II 4G has successfully been released on Bell, it’s time to dial it back a bit. Going all out might not be for all Canadians and those wanting a decent entry level Android that runs OS 2.3 might be up for the Samsung Galaxy Gio. This will officially land on August 4th and has a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 3-megapixel camera that takes vids and has Wi-Fi. So there you have it… another Android coming to Bell.

More soon!
(Thanks tipster!)

    Good of Samsung to target all types of people: those who want the best and those who want the decent.

    Phones purchased outright ought to already come unlocked, instead of narrowing down our choice of providers.

    Dam bell is killing the Canadian market with androids!!!

    We should call them Android mobility instead of bell mobility!!! :)

    Way to go Bell!!

      If Telus, Rogers, and possibly Fido, don’t get better phones and plans, then Bell could get the majority of customers whose contract had ended (if they haven’t already). If this keeps up, I would be worried of a monopoly-in-the-making.
      Come on, Telus and Rogers!

    Rogers is getting the HTC EVO 3D so they still have some decent Android phones. Telus is the 1 I’m worried about. It’s been a while since the HTC Desire HD.

      Especially since the Desire HD came out half a year late and that this device was an answer to the Galaxy S1 to begin with.

  • Graham

    I don’t see this yet on Bell’s website… Any word on when it’s to be released in Ontario?

    • schultzter

      Yup, still not on the Bell web site or the Samsung Canada web site either!!! Samsung has a micro-site for the Galaxy Ace/Gio/Fit/Mini but there’s no “where to buy link” so what’s happening here?

    • fokus

      It comes out today on bell. *I work for bell.. so I know this to be true*

    Im not going to lie, I dont really like bell, BUT! i’ll admit they do have the best phone lineup in canada right now.
