April 1st is the date that Bell and TELUS have pressed the go live button for pre-orders of the Galaxy S5. This 5.1-inch flagship is officially launching on April 11th and will come in both “Charcoal Black” and “Shimmery White.” The prices were revealed last month and TELUS has positioned the GS5 at $229 on a 2-year or $730 outright. Bell’s 2-year contract is slightly higher at $249.95 with the no-term at $699.95.
It also seems that there might be limited inventory on launch day. TELUS notes that “Due to limited stock, we are accepting pre-orders on 2-year terms. Month-to-month purchases will be added as more stock becomes available.”
