Just when you thought the American Carriers were going to have all the fun tonight, the folks Rogers contacted me to chime in, “Us too!” That’s right Canadians, although pricing and availability haven’t been announced – so I’m not sure if a holiday release is in the cards – Rogers does plan on carrying the Galaxy Tab. They even made a post on RedBoard supporting the plans:
We’re thrilled to tell you that the Samsung Galaxy Tab – Samsung’s first tablet – will be coming to Canada on Rogers later this year.
As the Canadian carrier with the most tablet customers, we’re excited to carry the Samsung Galaxy Tab on Canada’s reliable network. Tablets are among today’s hottest devices – they let you connect with information, entertainment and other content in new ways – at home or on the go.
The carriers definitely seem to be clamoring for the goods which must mean people are anticipating the device will have a hot holiday welcome. I wouldn’t be surprised, but remember folks, a lot of its success or peril could come down to price points and that is just about the only mystery that currently exists.
