@ saadgh.. You really do not know anything do you.

Do you know what exclusive means?
When Rogers released the Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE they have the exclusive rights to it. Just like bell had the exclusive rights to release the Samsung Galaxy S2. They never posted on the website that they are having it exclisuve at their carriers.

Please read a few things on the internet before you post comments you do not even know what you are talking about. Not being rude but you are confusing others while you are not even aware of what you are saying.

BTW what is " house" You keep saying. I can not understand what you mean when you keep saying " house"


Seeing as Bell & Virgin posted they are the first to release it & also have it on their website it clearly shows they are releasing it first & they have exclusive rights to release it first. Now i might be wrong but this is how it looks like it. I also called in head office of Bell & they also did say that as well. Do you have any proof that Rogers will get it? Seeing as Rogers has not even posted ONE thing about this phone YET Bell & Virgin did. Also there has been more proof that Bell was going to get it first seeing as ONLY they are getting high end phones to release before Rogers has done.

 

The LTE netowrks does not mean anything here since we are talking about PHONES NOT networks. Rogers released it first & then Bell followed after. What does that mean? Rogers released it first like they said. What does Virgin site says? " First" So please understand that Virgin & Bell are releasing the phones FIRST. I really hope Rogers gets it a week or soo after they do tho. Remember tho like i said Bell offers more money to the Companies in which Rogers does not. This is why Rogers does not get the phones that Bell does. Only a few phones bell has Rogers has.

Well i don’t want to be rude, but I think you have to go and check the s2 lte web at Rogers and see the big huge red circle (Rogers Exclusive) this mean no one will get this phone not bell no other carriers her is the link

 

http://www.rogers.com/web/link/wirelessBuyFlow?forwardTo=PhoneThenPlan&productType=normal&productId_...

 

when the carrier says this is exclusive mean no one can or will release the device, if they say we have it first means the other carrier have the right to get it as well

 

house is a typo

According to MobileSyrup:

" In addition, we’re still hearing rumblings of an exclusive by one of the Big 3 carriers (Rogers, Bell or TELUS)…"

 

That statement was released 5 days ago.  See here:

http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/11/09/official-google-galaxy-nexus-page-now-shows-canada-as-coming-soon/

 

I think today's official announcement from Bell and Virgin pretty much sums up the Galaxy Nexus as exclusive to them.  It was the same with the S2.  Telus and Rogers waited for months before releasing their own version of the S2.  I think at this point, it's safe to say Rogers will try to capitalize on their S2 LTE sales and the Nexus may take a few more weeks or months to be released.

 

Regardless, isn't the Galaxy Nexus supposed to come unlocked?  And with rumours of a price point of 500$ outright, why subject yourself to another 3 year contract?

OMG what do i have to type for you to understand this... Even Halo240sx even said the same thing as me. Get over it Rogers will NOT release it at launch. Bell & Virgin will.. My god. Read other websites & they will say the same as me & him.

Bell & Virgin are releasing it First. The end. Rogers will release it whenever they want too & i doubt it will be the same time as Bell & Virgin seeing as both of them did put on there website as of today they are releasing it & Rogers has NOT putting anything up.

 

Also may i add like i have within the other posts that VIRGIN has posted that they will be the FIRST TO LAUNCH IT. Meaning they are going to have the exclsive launch before Rogers launches the phone. Rogers will launch it weeks after Bell & Virgin does.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Well, you know some thing and I know some thing else!!

 

You replied to me this morning thatRogerswill have no release date because Samsung did not release the phone as of yet and you were typing with out any knowledge that bell and version released the phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

You do your comment and I do mine

 

The idea is thanks god they did not say it is EXCLUSIVE other wise Rogers will not get it not after one week or one month or one year, you right may be they will have it after 2 weeks but NOT FIRST, because bell and version did not say EXCLUSIVE

Yes because everyone said the same thing as i did & then Bell & Virgin this morning said they are going to be first to release it. No one knew that Bell & Virgin posted it till MobileSyrup & others saw it. This also was after i posted that comment so you really can not bring my comment here since my comment was posted BEFORE Bell & Virgin posted their pages up...

Rogers may be getting the LTE version. Rogers will most likely wait for a few weeks until they release it.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Anyways, as far as we know, Rogers has not confirmed they are getting ANY version of the Galaxy Nexus.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

That is correct. Rogers will most likely release something to us saying that they WILL release the phone but will not give us a date. Just like they did with the S2 LTE.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

My bad, they announced it: JANUARY 2012.

http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/11/14/rogers-to-release-the-samsung-galaxy-nexus-in-january-2012/

So we're getting it, a lot later.

See? Rogers is going to release it a month after Virgin & Bell does. So there you have it.

 

Also you will be able to reserve it threw the reservation system tomorrow.

 

Just to let you guys know DO NOT reserve it threw that system. Read the thread about the iPhone 4S reservation & the Samsung galaxy s2 LTE reservation system.

 

The reservation system has problems in which you might get your phone weeks after. Meaning you might get your phone Feb instead on Jan. I would suggest you just wait outside of a store during the launch day & get it.

I'd buy mine outright from Bell or Virgin if I wanted it one ASAP.

Yea so do not reserve it threw the reservation system. You will be waiting for the phone weeks after everyone else has it. Remember this happened the same way with the iPhone 4S in the start. So 2 phones Rogers launched on the Reservation system had the same exact issues. I guess Rogers has not realized they did a damage on the system

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Here we go we are at the same scenario like the LTE, guys you could only copy and paste your comments from the previous Samsung galaxy s2 LTE
We will not get this phone until June or July 2012 you know why because apple will release the iphone 5 I guess

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Apple has not even annonced anything about a iPhone 5. Same goes with the release date.. .. 😕 What does Apple & iPhone 5 have to do with any of this?

Rogers already came out saying that the Galaxy Nexus is being released on the Roger network in January 2012. You will get this phone but you will most likely get it sometime Feb if you choice to go with the reservation system.

Oh come on, it sounds like everybody's life will end because they can't the the gadget in their hands tomorrow.  It's a freaking phone, you make calls on it, text on it. I'm sure your old phone can do that for an extra month.  Armageddon will not come early because you have to wait a month for a phone, or god forbid buy something else. Consumerism run a muck, I'm sure the phone companies love it!   

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

You're right. The phone companies are loving all of this.

 

What upsets me is that I'm not being given the information by my current provider (Rogers) to make a descition on my next consumer purchase.

 

Right now I've decided I want to purchase the Galaxy Nexus. However, I don't know if the specs of that phone that my current provider is going to carry is the same as the rest of the Canadian market. 

 

If it's the specs are the same as other carriers then I'll happily purchase on as soon as I can from another carrier since I'm excited about the product.  However, if Rogers is going to carry a different spec'd model, then I'll happily wait for Rogers. 

 

As far as I'm concerned, my cell phone provider is just a voice/data pipe.   Just like any company, whoever provides me with the best product and service will get my business.

 

But since Rogers isn't releasing any info, I'm in limbo...which is anoying. 

 

People have repeatedly said that Rogers is getting the same model as Bell (16GB HSPA+).  I'd like to see that in writing somewhere because I can't find it.  The Google site only lists what's currently available in Canada which makes sense.

 

Guess I'll just have to wait...

You know the Bell version will work on Rogers.

Also, people misunderstand how the reservation system works. Nowhere does it say that reserving assures you get it before anyone else. It simply ensures that you get one (and don't have wait in line only to find out they are sold out). In fact, when you reserve the device it explicitly says that others who go to a store may get it earlier.

So the Galaxy Nexus is finally available in Canada.

If you're a Rogers customer and manage to get it, please share your experience (total costs...).
