TELUS’ first LTE-enabled smartphone will be the LG Optimus LTE. The screen on this is gorgeous. A 4.5-inch “true HD” display that has a resolution of 1280 x 720. This will run OS 2.3 Gingerbread, but will eventually be upgraded to OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Pricing is the following: No-contract is $629.99; 1-year is $579.99; 2-year is $529.99 and the 3-year term is on a promo price of $99.99 ($50/month plan is required). TELUS will officially be releasing this tomorrow when their LTE network goes live – they’ll also be including an 8GB microSD card in the box. Read our full review here.

(Thanks tipster!)

    ROGERS AND BELL HAVE NOT CONFIRMED THE PRICE OF THE GALAXY NOTE YET????

    • SAM

      LESS THAN 2 BUSINESS DAYS TO THE RELEASE DATE AND WE STILL DON’T HAVE THE EXACT PRICE FOR THE GALAXY NOTE !!!

    • LTEmoreexpensive

      Telus says that LTE is not going to cost more than regular data:
      They just INCREASED the prices:
      1GB- $20
      2GB- $35
      6GB- $60 SIXTY dollars!

      The old 6GB for $35 is gone!
      Telus is right: regular and LTE data will cost the same now.

    • LTEmoreexpensive

      With other operators “regular data” is cheaper than “LTE data” so its up to you if you want to buy a more expensive phone with lower battery life and pay more for the same amount of data.
      Or just use a non LTE phone; which is cheaper, has better battery life and pay less.
      Telus removed that option and now regular or not will have the price of LTE data.
      Telus is aiming for the higher ARPU no doub about that!

    These LTE tablets are priced my mental patients.

    With a LTE iPad3 in March, why would anyone buy this warmed over piece of junk? As a android user, these tablets need to be much cheaper than the comparable iPad to even have a chance.

    Also, without ICS, don’t even bother.

      but it’s a phone…not a tablet

  • Matt

    Picking this up tomorrow AM. Can’t wait for faster speeds than my Torch 9810.

    • SAM

      DONT WAIT FOR THE GALAXY NOTE!!

    • SAM

      MAYBE YOU DON’T LIKE THE NOTE, TRY THE GALAXY NEXUS THEN IS A WAY BETTER THAN THE LG.

      LG IS A CRAPPY PHONE NO UPDATED AT ALL!!!

    • Jeb

      Got mine from bell, dont listen to SAM, while im not knocking the gal nexus in any way, my friend has it and its not like its super fast compaired to the optimus, they seem about the same for browsing through menus or any other activites on the phone, nor has it any other killer features besides ICS, which im my opinion is way over hyped, been playing around with it on my tab and seems more like a design overhall then anything else, the only new feature Im looking forward to is fine grained controls for app data usage. Check out xda forums for tips on the phone, Im really liking it so far, lte speeds, native mkv playback that works great, the screen is awesome.

    • ebee

      This LG phone used up 60% of battery in a 30 min ride on the GO train ride in Toronto (with bell).

  • Sub-Joker

    You can get this on ebay or kijiji for around 300 bucks….. why would you pay double that price for that. knowing LG quality and support, I wouldn’t tie myself to a contract for this one, nor buy it for that 630 price.

    If i’m so desperate for an LTE device, would stick with the Note. having 3 carriers selling this phone will force all of them to compete who’ll give the ICS update first. It’s always the case with previous galaxy phones. Bell or telus update release always pressures the rest of the Robelus group to follow up with an update shortly.

  • willy

    The Rogers note will be 699 outright

    • SAM

      HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT???

  • Mysitc09

    All caps all the time Sam? Really?

    I was hoping the Note would be released tomorrow.. darn.. Guess I can wait a few more days.

    • SAM

      MY KEYBOARD IS BROKEN ONLY TAKES CAPS!!

      NOW HOW THEY ARE GOING TO RELEASE THE NOTE AND ALL WEB FOR ROGERS, BELL AND TELUS HAVE NO PRICES, I CALLED 5 ROGERS STORES THEY DON’T KNOW WHEN IS GOING TO BE AVAILABLE AND OR THE PRICE!!!

  • Superfly

    Until LTE is available in 99% of rural canada for OPTIK TV, PHONE, and 60 GB or more high speed internet, it’s all just a waste and is worth nothing. Absolutely useless!!!

  • Not Sam

    SAM YOU’RE THE WORST. IF YOUR KEYBOARD IS BROKEN, YOU SHOULD STOP TALKING ABOUT PHONES AND FOCUS ON THAT.

  • Demonte21

    25$ At Bell on a 3 Years term. And this is not a promotional price.
