Initially introduced in Canada via Bell and Virgin Mobile, Samsung Galaxy Nexus has finally hit shelves at other carriers in the country. The majority of the Canadian operators launched the Galaxy Nexus last week, while a few others are planning to add the smartphone to their portfolios in the following weeks.
The best deal on the Galaxy Nexus was offered by TELUS who is now selling the smartphone for only $99.99 (80 EUR) with a new three-year agreement, whereas the rest of Canadian carriers sell the device for $159.99 (125 EUR) on a three-year term.
Starting this week TELUS will not be the only one to offer the Galaxy Nexus for under $100 (80 EUR), as Rogers, Fido and SaskTel announced they would sell the Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone for the same $99.99 price.
However, TELUS’ introductory offer is only available until January 26, after which the Galaxy Nexus price on a three-year term will go up to $299.99 (235 EUR).
Although there’s no word on the other carriers’ offer, there’s a high chance that Rogers, Fido and SaskTel will maintain the $99.99 price for a much longer time than TELUS.
In the same news, Bell and Virgin Mobile are selling the Galaxy Nexus for the same $159.99 (125 EUR) price with a new three-year agreement.
The first device to bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Google’s mobile platform, Samsung Galaxy Nexus is not among the most powerful Android devices available on the market.
However, the Galaxy Nexus embeds a powerful 1.2 GHz dual core TI OMAP 4460 processor, as well as 16GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, the device does not come with a microSD card slot for memory expansion, which is one of the reasons Samsung decided to launch another Galaxy Nexus model that packs 32GB storage.
