Samsung Galaxy Note - Rogers, you gotta grab this one!

I realize there's no point in asking Rogers whether or not they will be offering the Galaxy Note at this time, as the phone is at least 2 months away from release... so all I can do at this point is BEG.

 

Please. Please please please. Make it happen. BEFORE Bell adds this to their 'Superphone' line-up.

 

This thing is LTE. You're going to need more LTE devices. This could be that differentiating device top-tier carriers like yourself need to have in your portfolio.

 

Not going to bother with the specs here, as they're widely avaialble on the web... but this phone is EXACTLY what many users who aren't afraid of larger phone sizes want.

 

Anyone else out there as excited about this device as I am?

The thing is that most costumers do NOT want a phone with a 5 + inch screen on it. A lot of people consider this a TABLET. I also consider it a tablet not a phone.

When i spoke to Sell department at Rogers they told me they barely sold enough Dell streaks. Mind you the Dell streak had problems & has a the lower end update. I hope Rogers does get the Galaxy Note but mark my words i really doubt they will get it. I have noticed that Rogers , Bell , Telus are only getting phones for LTE / 4G. If the Note comes with those specs MAYBE Rogers will get it. Who knows. As of now nothing has been said.

I have been looking all over to get the Samsung Galaxy Note. This smartphone would definately set Rogers apart from all the other providers. The phone size is right in between a tablet and smartphone at 5'3 inches. I know that I will be going with the provider that gets this phone, so I would like to encourage the Rogers organization to speed up the process to get this device. The Samsung Galaxy S ii took way too long to get here, hopefully it won't be the same for the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Seriously, I don't understand how come regular people get a hold of these awesome phones straight out of the factory and cell phone providers still struggle to make it happen. There is people in Richmond already offering the Samsung Galaxy Note for about $700.00. Rogers already has like 13 Samsung phones so I hope they will get the Samsung Galaxy Note ASAP, hopefully before the holidays are over. If you guys haven't checked out the specs of the phone just go on youtube

and type "Samsung Galaxy Note." In my opinion, the phone is way better than Iphone 4s. What rogers should be doing is creating excitement with unbeatable deals and by providing these awesome phones. Instead, there is companies like mobilicity that have taken the excitement with a good portion of the market with their pricing. At least, if we are to get charged more for the same than we should have access to top of the line, up to dated smartphones, like the "Samsung Galaxy Note" and not just that IPHONE.

So The Galaxy Note will NOT be coming to Canada Q1.

You see that big touchscreen above? It’s coming to Canada next year. Our reliable sources have informed us that the Samsung Galaxy Note, “a new category of product”, will be launching in Canada “early Q1 2012″. Carrier(s) are still being decided upon, but it will most likely end up being an exclusive. Specs wise, this Android comes with OS 2.3.5 and no word yet on an upgrade to OS 4.0. In addition, the Note has a huge 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display (1280×800) that’s made of Gorilla Glass, has the and an “S Pen” stylus, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel camera that records 1080p HD videos, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, HSPA+ and LTE-enabled, Wi-Fi and a 2,500 mAh battery. Overall dimensions of the Note are 9.65mm thin and weighs 178 grams.

No word on price points, or an exact date, but it’s coming.
More soon!

I hope rogers doesn't miss out on the opportunity to be the first to offer this phone.  It would be a dissappointment if they repeat the debacle that happened with the S2.

 

I have never lined up to purchase anything but I would do it for the Note.

I just wanted to say that I think Rogers should get the SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE for it's customers.

I believe this is how it goes, bell got the Samsung galaxy s2 the galaxy tab 8.9 as well as the galaxy nexus, but rogers since July 2011 they got only the gs2 LTE.
Now I think its rogers turn to get some thing good or this will be redeculas that rogers will get only one device from Samsung the whole year!!!!!

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note - Rogers, you gotta grab this one!

What I was thinking is to go to rogers and buy the gs2lte then sale it for 500 or 600 then I can go and buy the note which is available unlocked just to pay the difference about 200

I have seen a few people on Kijiji Selling the Galaxy note here in Toronto & in Vancouver. I emailed one of them & he seems to actually have it & he is giving me the S/N to check call Samsung to even confirm it.

@saadgh. Believe me not a lot of people are going to buy it for $600. Lower the price to maybe around 550 or 500 & you will get the money then. I told my S2 LTE for 600 after 3 hours of on going emails with the person TRYING to convince me to give it too him for 450.

Hope you don't mind me asking.  Why did you sell the S2?

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note - Rogers, you gotta grab this one!

I would have bought the Streak had it been manufactured by a well known mobile phone company like Samsung or HTC.  I just don't trust Dell products.  I think many people felt the same when the Streak first came out.  I would definitely by the Note if Rogers was to offer it.  To me, the screen size is a bonus.

Looks like the Galaxy Note is indeed coming to Canada in Q1 2012: http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/11/28/samsung-galaxy-note-coming-to-canada-q1-2012/

 

No word on whether it's coming to Bell or Rogers, but looks like it'll probably be exclusive to either one of those. Also no word on whether this will be the LTE version (which was recently released in Korea), or the non-LTE version like the one released in Europe.

Rogers is not getting the Galaxy Note this month. Its the Galaxy Nexus they are getting. Go into the Galaxy nexus thread to see the link.

Maybe it's just me, but the Note looks a bit too big? It's kind of funny, how technology has gone from the smaller the better to reversing the trend.

From the looks of it Samsung Canada DID confirm its coming to Canada but it has not confirmed which Carrier. Now it could be a Bell or Rogers exclusive OR they will both Release it at the same time.

Also Telus did say they are releasing the Note as well.
