The Samsung Galaxy Note is heading to Thunder Bay and surrounding areas, courtesy of the partnership between tbaytel and Rogers. Taking a look at this internal doc shows all the specs and pricing that we’re used to seeing with the Note, but one glaring omission is LTE. Currently tbaytel only has HSPA+ 4G speeds that’ll reach “up to 21Mbps”, so depending how the upcoming 700MHz spectrum auction pans out will/won’t see LTE (Long Term Evolution) reach them.
However, in the meantime this solid Android-powered device runs OS 2.3 Gingerbread and is on an upgrade path to OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition, this comes with Samsung’s S Pen, 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display (1280 x 800), 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8MP Camera that shoots 1080p videos and a 2,500 mAh battery. The Note will officially be available on tbaytel on Monday, March 12th (tomorrow) for the following prices: 3-year is $199.99; 2-year term is $399.99; 1-year for $599.99 and the no-term is $699.99.
