Samsung Galaxy Nexus ‘coming soon’ to Videotron in Canada


As rumors of the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus continue to grab most of our attention, our friends up in Canada are getting hit with Galaxy Nexus support from every carrier possible. Videotron (a regional service provider in Quebec) is the latest to reveal that the Galaxy Nexus will be “coming soon” to their customers. Pricing and availability details are not yet available, but we’re assuming Videotron will be launching the phone as quickly as they can.

Bell and Virgin Mobile already have the Galaxy Nexus on the market in Canada, and Telus and Rogers should be next; their official launches of the phone are scheduled for January 13. We know that Sprint is prepping its Galaxy Nexus launch, but we’re hoping to see the device hit T-Mobile and AT&T within the next month or two as well.

    I love seeing the GNex doing well like this! It’s a great phone and deserves to be in as many hands as possible!

      I agree! The more carriers it’s on, the more popular it will become and thus will no longer be a phone that is mostly bought only by Android enthusiasts.

    I love me some Android phones, but until the Nexus (or SGS3) has an expandable slot in it, I won’t upgrade.

    I want to be able to expand my memory, not be stuck at the manufacturer’s level. What is this, Apple?

      This is literally the only downside I have found to the Nexus. Why have that gorgeous big screen capable of 720p playback if I can only store a couple of movies on the thing? Other than that it has exceeded my expectations (coming from a HTC Desire) in every possible way.

      ICS is amazing, even if being at the bleeding edge means I have to wait for a few app developers to catch up. I would hope this is successful enough that at least one of the manufacturers sees a niche in the market for providing vanilla Android and timely updates.

    Rumors for Sprint GNex? I think it’s safe to say it’s confirmed: http://www.sprint.com/landings/lte/index.html?ECID=MA:AB:20120109:CES:GLX:NXS:300×1050

    I got the nexus s and nexus one on videotron network last summer for me my wife, the share plan is really good for our needs and I added 6Gb data on my phone, so now is time to upgrade unfortunately nexus one is a pice a history already totally unusable with today’s apps so I need to replace it, all I can say is that if you want to visit the phone history museum check out the videotron inventory I think they still have a Motorola startack somewhere there, there mobile marketing department is still living in 20th Century and the choices for new phones or tablets, my God, the worse posibil, Amaze 4g the 4hrs on idle phone, and other faile attempt of a phone.
    . Now getting back to this announcement I have seen the coming soon add on their first page for about a month, if they follow the same marketing as before the will probably release it sometime in March right after GS3 hits the market every where else at “lovely” price of 299$ with 3 years contact and a minim of 40 $ /month bill, so I’m not getting my hopes on yet for an upgrade, but I have to or I will smash the nexus one in to a wall one day.
