I’m a few days behind on this one but it appears that availability has improved somewhat at Rogers for the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE. Only a few weeks ago, Rogers was only able to ship “a very limited number” to customers who had pre-ordered it. The carrier now indicates that it is available in stores. A small piece of advice: Call ahead to confirm that your store of choice has stock before heading down.
Some other good news: The price with a three-year plan has dropped to CA$179.99 (from CA$199.99). The contract-free price remains at CA$649.99.
