After much speculation and a long wait, the Galaxy Note 2 has been officially launched in Canada. The Galaxy Note 2 phablet will be available on several Canadian carriers like Rogers, TELUS, Bell, SaskTel, WIND, Mobilicity, and Videotron; however, consumers may find it difficult to grab the device, thanks to limited availability.
"Today Samsung marks the official release of the GALAXY Note II, our latest premium Smartphone and the Next Big Thing in mobile communication devices," notes Samsung Canada's Facebook page.
However, Samsung Canada disclaims that inventory may be limited and consumers would need to wait.
"We are working hard to get inventory to all of our carrier and retail partners, however in-store availability will be scarce until we get our full supply to stores over the next two weeks. Thank you for your patience and love for the GALAXY Note II," states Samsung Canada's Facebook page.
Additionally, carrier Rogers has listed the Galaxy Note 2 as available on its Web site for $199.99 on a three-year contract and $649.99 for a month-to-month one. The carrier will be offering both the Titanium Gray and Marble White versions of the phablet, but Rogers does not give any indication of the delivery time frame.
Bell's Web site too has the Galaxy Note 2 up for grabs and the device will set users back by $199.95 on a three-year contract and $729.95 upfront. Bell disclaims that users need to "allow 6 to 8 days for delivery of any shipped items."
The Galaxy Note 2 is a follow-up of Samsung's hugely successful Galaxy Note and packs in several improved features, including a bigger screen and faster processor.
Consumers in Canada would be disappointed with the news that the stock of the Galaxy Note 2 is limited. To avoid disappointment, it's best that prospective buyers check with the store first before heading out to pick up the phablet.
