The Samsung Galaxy Q will be launching soon on both Rogers and Fido. This internal doc gives all the details one would need to make a decision about this Android 2.2 device. As expected, the price points are will range from a no-contract $249.99 down to $49.99 on a 3-year. The Galaxy Q has a 3.2-inch display, a 3 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and is also part of the newly created Rogers “Smartphone Lite” category that gives you 100MB data for $10/month. The sweet spot for this Android are those aged in their “Teens to early 20s looking for their first smartphone device with a familiar slide-out QWERTY form factor”.

This should be in Rogers stores this week.
More soon!

(Thanks tipster!)

  • Arber

    Since when were teens early 20s?

    • Omar

      It says “Teens to early 20s”. Meaning 13-18/19 into early 20s.

  • Alex Perrier

    Rogers sky high prices! Koodo has the LG Optimus Chat for $175. It costs $100 if you consider the gift card right now. Their plans also cost less, too. So why does Rogers bother with the Galaxy Q?

    • Sean

      Don’t forget the optimus one

  • choy

    Same price as Xperia Pro, why will I get this over Xperia Pro?

  • whocares

    Can you get this without data?

  • bengermen

    if its screen is only .2 inches bigger than the xperia mini pro and its only running froyo instead of gingerbread whats the point of getting this over the mini pro?

  • jen

    only comes with 2.2 froyo. that’s lame. specially since a few androids already have 2.3.4 gingerbread

  • Tyler

    If the Xperia Mini Pro is anything like the Xperia Mini….. then there’s your very good reason to get this instead of the Pro.

    This phone will sell very well despite the Froyo issue. I bet 90% of the people who go into a Rogers store have no idea what the difference is. Coming with 2.2 instead of 2.3 is only really a deal-breaker for sanctimonious fanboys and fangirls who probably don’t have Rogers phones anyways.

  • Eluder

    This phone is going to fall in the smartphone lite category as the launch flyer states, this means no data requirement similar to the Xperia Mini Pro.

  • KnightFire

    Was thinking of getting this for the wife, but then saw the specs… wouldn’t even get one for the X… this is SAD… Robber$ can you do no better?

    Just saw a US ad for a superphone, $199 on a two year – AND get this they’ll give you a second identical phone FREE!

    Canadian Cellphone Service Providers suck 🙁

    • Psor

      What specs you did not like ?

  • Rexuslexus

    Oh wait… This is all wrong!!!

  • Bengermen

    Why cant rogers just get some non 3d dual core smartphones

  • qwerty
