With AT&T getting a confirmed release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note earlier the Canadians don’t want to be left out of the fun. While we’ve known for some time now that the device would be launching mid-February, we didn’t have an exact date. Thanks to Best Buy, that’s no longer the case. And when they say mid-February, they mean exactly in the middle of the month. We should be seeing it on Rogers, Telus and Bell starting February 14th. Pricing is believed to be around $250 on a three-year agreement for most offering it but that can’t be 100% confirmed right now. Getting a date is the first step, though, so we’re glad that’s out of the way. Take a look here. [via MobileSyrup]
