The Samsung Galaxy Q is now available at Rogers on the cheap, $249.99 outright and $49.99 on a 3-year. It’s nice to see handset prices dropping and this QWERTY slider runs Android OS 2.2, but currently there’s no word if/when it’ll be upgraded to OS 2.3 Gingerbread. Specs are good for the entry level Android: 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 3 megapixel camera with video capabilities, HTML browser, Wi-Fi.

Check it here at Rogers

    doesn’t the black notification bar on top mean it is 2.3?

    Give me a break. Rogers needs to quit ripping people off like this… The galaxy q, 249??? Hell no. On virgin the galaxy gio is 150 outright. And it’s also running 2.3. 49.99 on a three year contract is stealing…. I’m sorry but it is. Especially in this day and age of entry level androids

    gio is better deal as stated above. although if you have to have a keyboard i guess you will have to pay more

    • Cadet

      if you don’t mind the screen, get the SEX mini pro instead
      it would feel better and snappier with similar pricing
      with gingerbread already there except the screen is a bit smailler

    I’m glad I jumped shipped from Fido for the Galaxy S2.

    I was holding out to see what Rogers/Fido would bring to the table………but just as I suspected they’ve got nothing.

    The grass actually is greener……

      How are you finding the reception on Bell’s network? I’ve heard some pretty disparaging remarks about it, but not from anyone who is still on Bell.

    The gio is a better deal. Zellers is selling them $69.99 outright right now. There is always a deal somewhere on entry level devices without signing a stupid contract.

    I dont get how Rogers or any other provider for that matter is “ripping” anyone off? As a consumer you have the option to buy or not to buy. Think of it as movie popcorn, if you want the popcorn you buy. You think there might be a little mark up there?
