Telus to launch the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Friday for $99.99 with contract, Galaxy Note coming soon

A few days ago we let you know that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be available at Telus in Canada starting on January 13 (that’s this Friday). But back then we had no pricing information to speak of.

Today though that changes. It turns out that Telus will launch the Galaxy Nexus on Friday with a special introductory offer – you’ll be able to get the superphone for just $99.99 with a new three-year contract. Unfortunately we still have no word on the other price points (for shorter contract spans as well as without a contract). But we’ll find out officially in just three days anyway.

Also coming to Telus is the Samsung Galaxy Note, which has just made its debut in North America on AT&T. The Galaxy Note will be sold by Telus sometime during the first quarter (so before the end of March). However, the carrier wouldn’t give any more specific details for now, or mention anything about pricing. So stay tuned for more.

The Samsung Galaxy Note will probably be headed to other Canadian carriers as well (we’re guessing Bell and/or Rogers), since Samsung Canada officially announced that its phone/tablet hybrid would be launched by “Canadian carriers in the first quarter”. That’s carriers – plural, so expect an acknowledgement from at least one other company soon.
