Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Awesome Mathieu!   Congrats.   So jealous. Going to see if I can play with one on lunch.

 

jaydee77ca, yes, GSII will get ICS but 1) it'll be slightly modified by Samsung and 2) updates will always be delayed by Samsung's skinning and carrier deployment.  I'ld like to avoid both of those things.  Hence the desire to go to the GN.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Spoken with a few friends who have picked it up and are on Rogers. They said they purchased it from Futureshop online and had it shipped to them. Perhaps this is a workaround? The phone will be the same, unless Rogers picks up the AT&T model, or somehow gets a new model with LTE.

@AdamUpNorth Yes, very true. The updates will not be as quick and it will have TouchWiz over top of it.

@mbazdell "or somehow gets a new model with LTE" That would be nice, but I'm not sure it will happen. If I had to guess I think Rogers will get the AT&T version which is not LTE.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

FYI....The Rogers reservation system now has the Galaxy Nexus available again.

Still no confirmation on specs...I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same as Bell (16GB HSPA+) but it would be nice to know what I've reserved....

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Ya like Adam said, the reservation system now has the Nexus again. I didn't reserve - looking to dead my line in the current family plan I'm a part of to start my own new activation.

However, I'm still waiting for a confirmed release date, let alone a rough idea of when Rogers will be getting the Galaxy Nexus. Looking forward to it.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

cc781, I asked @RogersBuzz about the launch date earlier this week and although they couldn't give me a day, they did confirm that it will still be in January as originally announced.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - RogersGalaxy

Forget the launch date, I want to know if it will be the 32gb version.  If they're only going to have the 16gb version then the launch date doesn't matter for me because I won't be getting is (My 32gb on my Captivate is already full! LOL)

You have to log in to My Rogers then on the Overview page under Wireless you should see a Device Reservation button.
