Well, well, well. This is a turn of events. I just received a very welcome email from TELUS. The Samsung Galaxy Note will be heading towards TELUS. Yes, TELUS! This will be launching on their HSPA+ network, but will be available when their LTE network launches “later this quarter”. No word on price points, or a release date… but I’ve been hearing February.
I thought you would be interested in this “coming soon” to TELUS announcement. TELUS will soon be adding to their Galaxy family with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note, which Samsung debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show today.
With an amazing, immersive 5.3”super AMOLED screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note will expand the boundaries of the smartphone category, while still maintaining portability with a light and thin 9.5mm design. But that’s not all that’s different about this smartphone: it also features the digital “S pen” – a unique tool that allows users to sketch, create, and enhance their experience on that huge screen with the precision and accuracy of a real pen.
Powered by Android 2.3, the Samsung Galaxy Note offers a powerful 1.4GHz dual core processor for a powerhouse performance users expect from a top of the line Galaxy device. Equipped with an 8MP rear facing camera with flash and a 2MP front facing camera, the Samsung Galaxy Note allows users to enjoy video calling as well as HD photo and video recording.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is an LTE device that will also run nationally on TELUS’ coast-to-coast HSPA+ network (which covers 97% of the Canadian population), so TELUS customers across Canada can enjoy it virtually anywhere and will be future-proofed for the LTE network when that is launched later this quarter.
