LG Canada announced its plans to make the G2 available on Rogers, TELUS, Bell, SaskTel, Videotron and WIND Mobile sometime ‘this fall.’ The press release highlighted all the unique specs, but failed to give specific timing and pricing.
In the fine print of the newly released LG Canada G2 contest page there’s a bit of a hint of how much and when the device might be released. The rules note that the “Contest closes 11:59:59 p.m. EST on 09/10/13. Draws commence at 10:00 a.m. EST on 08/14/13. 28 daily prizes available to be won, each consisting of 1 LG Pocket Photo Printer- ARV $199 and 4 Weekly Grand Prizes available to be won, each consisting of 1 LG G2 Smartphone – ARV $699 (CDN).”
This could indicate that the official launch date is set for September 10th, which is a Tuesday and a familiar day in Canada to release new handsets. In addition, the $699 retail price seems about right.
