The Samsung Galaxy Gio is another Android device that will soon be coming to SaskTel. For the record, since SaskTel launched their “4G” new network we’re impressed how quickly they bring on new devices. The Gio will be their 5th Android device an it runs OS 2.3, has a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 800 MHz processor, 3 megapixel camera and Wi-Fi (plus you can create a Wi-Fi hotspot).

The price is $249.99 outright and drops to $99.99 on a 3-year… just to compare and that you’re aware of the pricing from other carriers who launched the Gio, Bell has it for $249 but the 3-year is $29.95. Virgin has the best deal going $149.99 no-term, and free on a 3-year.

    Boy it sure would be nice if MTS could get off their a*s and put something resembling a decent phone on their list!

    who the heck is SaskTel and why do I care, I live here in Ontario Canada. And no where in Zellers in Ottawa do they have this phone for sale.

    Hey claude, if you don’t know who Sasktel is, why did you click on the link? Everybody knows you live in Canada, this is mobilesyrup. Maybe you should get a map and look West of Ontario because there is more provinces other than yours.
