HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant launched in Canada (by Telus, Bell)
HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy S, two of the latest high-end Android smartphones, are available in Canada as of today.
As mentioned before, Telus is the Canadian carrier that’s offering the HTC Desire. The handset costs $79.99 with a contract agreement for three years, or $449.99 free of contract. Prices for 2-yr and 1-yr agreements are also available: check it all out here at Telus.
The Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant is offered by Bell and it also costs $79 with a 3-yr contract agreement. It’s slightly more expensive sans contract, though: $499. You can get it here at Bell. Customers who buy a Galaxy S Vibrant before August 12 can win tickets to a Lady Gaga concert. Also, those who buy the smartphone before September 3 are “automatically entered into a draw to win a 55-inch Samsung LED HD TV.”
Rogers – which already has lots of Android handsets – is bringing the Galaxy S to Canada as well (the Captivate version), but it didn’t say when exactly it will launch it.
