Sprint’s Virgin unit moving to high-end pre-paid model, Triumph launches on

It’s hard to argue with $25/month for unlimited internet/texts for a 3G smartphone plan.  Some would even call it the “Best Smartphone Deal on the Planet”.  One way Virgin was able to keep their prices so low was that their smartphones had tiny screens and weren’t multimedia juggernauts.  That all changed last month with the […]

Canada’s Rogers Wireless begins pre-orders for Samsung Galaxy S III

Canadians can now rejoice: Rogers Wireless is accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III.

MobileSyrup discovered prices for many of the Canadian carriers at BestBuy. However, it seems as though the prices are no longer live on the page. BestBuy previously indicated Rogers plans to charge $149.99, with Telus and Virgin Mobile aiming to grab $159.99 each. The page also displayed SaskTel as asking customers to fork over $169.99 for the latest Galaxy-branded smartphone. Of course, all these price tags would have come with a three-year contract.

Pricing details for Bell were not listed and are unknown, but the cost for a reserved unit is $50. The presumed no-contract price is $649.99.

It is worth mentioning that Rogers’ pre-order page does not list a quad-core Exynos processor under the Galaxy S III’s LTE capabilities. Therefore, the LTE version might début with a dual-core Snapdragon S4. The Rogers website also lacks a release date, but AndroidCommunity cited June 20 for the main launch across Canada based on earlier reports.

Existing customers can reserve their flagship device online (here), while those looking to switch carriers can sign up for more information.
