The Samsung Galaxy Note is widely available across several carriers in Canada: Bell, Rogers and TELUS. Now, a version of the phone/tablet – aka Phablet – has arrived online sporting T-Mobile branding. This will be good news for those on Wind Mobile, Mobilicity and Videotron. In addition, as you can see in the above pic, it’s sporting the model number SGH-T879 and Android OS 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, which could mean that an update is near. There’s no word on the specs, or when/if this will be released.

For those on Wind Mobile, Mobilicity and Videotron would you want this 5.3-inch Android?

    I think this is a bit much. It’s too big of a phone and too small of a tablet. A “failblet” more than a “phablet” in my opinion.

    • Doug Page

      I to thought the same thing until I tried on and it’s just the right size to browse the web, play games, and even edit full pdf & other docs. It’s a pure production machine that is fun to use.

    • JUST SAYING

      I have the note and it sucks. I’ll be buying myself an iPhone.

    • SAM

      OH THE NOTE!!!
      GET THE NOTE!!!
      YOU GOT THE NOTE!!
      FROM SAMMIE!!!
      GO SAMMIE!!!!

    • Matt

      I’m just upset I bought my over priced iPhone on a 3 year contract and now I’m stuck with a 3.5 inch display. 3.5 inches! I get angry when I see people able to use their phones and see whats on the screen like the note. :(

      I’m sorry. I’m the fail. At life.

    • JUST SAYING

      @Dough don’t you have a PC or even a tablet for that? It’s stupid to use a ford fiesta to drive furniture around. The note is an overpriced toy. I thought it was cool at first too, then I used it outside and it’s just too big.

    • Sub-Joker

      @JUST SAYING, how much are you selling it for?? I am looking for one myself and I would be interested (I’m serious btw, this is not a joke).

    • Sub-Joker

      I just want to buy it from you so I can throw it away. One less note the world has to deal with.

    • Sub-Joker

      taking a person’s name and commenting is not funny little kid…..

  • Doug Page

    I like many people thought this hybrid phone/tablet would be way to big to use as a every day driver but man was I wrong. I got my Note the first day Rogers released it and I can’t imagine life without this phone. It is pure awesome and I have owned 14 phones in the last 4 years even iphones. This is a true super phone that blows them all away!!! If you think this phone is way to big for you then go to a store and play with one for 5min. I know I sound like a fanboy but I’m truly that impressed with this device. Can’t wait for the ICS update.

    All you have to do is change the radio on the existing version and it will work on Wind/mobilicity/T-mobile

    • Studystand

      I don’t know why people down voted you. For everyone who wants to use their note on wind or mobilicity, please visit XDA forums!

    • Studystand

      One a second thought I know people down voted you. Mobi/Wind don’t need this junk on their network.

  • ToniCipriani

    SAM!!! Where are you!!!

  • MirzaB

    I would LOVE one!

    • MirzaB

      I misread it. I thought it is an iPhone. I don’t want this oversized junk note. I’d rather have an iPhone.

  • pike

    wind what are you waiting for!? :)

  • Meh

    Samsung Galaxy Note and Nokia Lumia 710 are coming soon to Videotron.

  • Turbo E

    My Note is already on Mobilicity.

  • Brandon

    I got mine on Rogers 6 days ago. Best device I’ve had. Everyone tells me its too big blah blah blah. Not to me. the big display makes watching netflix a pleasure. and I could play around with S Memo all day. Did I mention games? Games on this display are STUNNING. Where has it been all my life?! Recommend it to many people! Like Doug Page said, a lot of people think it’s too big but once you own one and play with it for a few days, it’s really not.

  • Zeake

    No doubt it’s taken so long cause t-mo had bin piling up their disgusting bloatware on it. Makes me sick.

  • PkaTka3

    I love my note! Seriously, it may be too big for some but you need to go in store and use it for 5-10 minutes. This phone is amazing. I will never use anything smaller.

    Samsung, thanks for options. :)

    • JUST SAYING

      I’ve the note for 3 weeks. It sucks. So PakTku3 stfu the note sucks.

  • Bala

    Its a good phone but i think its a little too big!! thats all.

  • JUST SAYING

    Best phone I’ve had in a while!

    • JUST SAYING

      …not

  • JUST SAYING

    … Not like the iPhone. Garbage. Hit the send button too soon by accident.

    • Bala

      Actually I read your comments and I agree. The note is sh*it. Why do idi0ts but it?

  • JUST SAYING

    Just to make it clear. I don’t like the note. It’s garbage.

    My previous post makes it look like I like it. Sorry for the confusion.

    The note is an oversized remote control at its best.

    • Bala

      You’re annoying. No one cares what you say. Your mom should have aborted you. Everyone knows the note is a great phone. :)

      The end.

  • Sub-Joker

    I find it interesting that all Samsung Galaxy SII and note phones in the united states took off the physical home button for the capacitive buttons in order to mitigate lawsuits from apple.

    • Matt

      This is actually because of ATT. They like the capacitive buttons.

  • Jer

    5’3 screen… wouldn’t touch that huge turd with a stick… Perfect though for people with a manpurse or clown pants rofl!

    • weakwizzard

      You are aware if you were to commit s uicide right now not a single person would care, right? What are you waiting for? :) Finding your fat gross body wearing your sisters jeans and Doritos stains on your nipples… now that’s rofl. ;)

      Bye bye fatty.

    • Jer

      Oh sry mr the wizard didn’t know your whole life turned around that phone. I would be temped to ask you to take your own advice and apply it, but luckily for all of us I have a little more class then you loser ;)

  • Matt

    What will this cost on Wind? $500 with the tab?

  • Matt

    The note is s hit

  • Michael

    I heard it’s a good phone. I would not buy it.
    But it’d be good business for the entrants.

  • EvanKr

    If it’s too big, then don’t buy it. Simple enough. If you want a smaller screen, go get a Lumia or a lower end Android.

  • Argula

    AWS enabled Samsung note is available for sale in Canada for 585 CAD, I am going to buy one this week. This works with Wind and mobilicity as well.

  • Remik

    It’s possible that the above picture of the Galaxy Note is from T-Mobile (Germany)and the phone might not be destined for Mobilicity or WIND after all. Dont get your hopes up just yet.

  • aregularonhofo

    The Nokia Lumia 710 works perfectly on Wind Mobile, unlike Mobi fanboys claim there are no dropped calls with their network, robotic sounds or slow data, and since the Nokia’s have superior reception it’s the kind of phone you want to use with a new provider and why many customers will switch over eventually. I can’t see the specs of Galaxy Note being too much different than the other high-end phones and just because you fork over $583 doesn’t quarantee you’ll get better service.

    i thought SAM will be all over this article!!! where’s Sam?
