The upcoming LG Optimus G is an Android Ice Cream Sandwich powered device and will be coming to Canada sometime “early November.” LG has promised an upgrad to Jelly Bean “early Q2 of 2013.” As stated before, the Optimus G will be launching Rogers, Bell and TELUS, but the main difference with Rogers version is that it’ll access their 2,600MHz LTE network and potentially reach download speeds of up to 100Mbps, but realistically you’ll see between 32-40Mbps.
Last week Rogers went live with Optimus G pre-orders last week eager customers could drop $40 and reserve theirs. Missing was the price, but a quick search on the Rogers site reveals what they plan to go-to-market with: $129.99 on a 3-year and $599.99 on a month-to-month. You could also expect Bell and TELUS to have similar pricing when they release the device as well. Check out our hands-on of the Optimus G here.
