Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus headed to Canada on March 16th

Ah, the Great White North. Where they appreciate simple living, courtesy, syrup made from trees and whiskey made from syrup, gravy on french fries, and quality seven-inch Android tablets. (I only know three people from Canada, so I may be wrong on some of those points.) In any case, Canadians can enjoy the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus starting on Friday of next week, in all its Honeycomb and TouchWiz glory. The asking price will be $349.99 CAD for the 16GB WiFi version, the same retail price that it's going for in the US.

LG Optimus LTE marches to Telus in Canada

LG's right proud of its international flagship, the Optimus LTE, and rightly so. The high-end smartphone has sold more than a million units worldwide, including Asian and North American markets. The company hopes to sell a few more in Canada soon, at the behest of wireless carrier Telus: the cellular provider recently showed up in a list of supported carriers on LG's Canadian website. Telus has remained mum on the subject, probably because its LTE network isn't scheduled to go live until later this month. Canadian competitor Bell as the Optimus 4G LTE.

Rogers’ LG Optimus Pad is now free on contract

If you buy the tablet ouutright it'll still cost you $549.99 CAD, or $499.99/$449.99 for a month-to-month or one-year contract, respectively.

Samsung Galaxy Note headed for Canada in February

While we're still in the dark on exactly when the Samsung Galaxy Note will make to AT&T in the United States, citizens of the Great White North can take some small comfort in the knowledge that the plus-sized phone will arrive sometime in February. Samsung broke the news themselves via a sign-up page to drum up interest for the phone's forthcoming release on Canadian carrier Telus. The date listed in the clock widget on the Galaxy Note's screen is February 23rd - take that for what it's worth.

Canadian carrier Fido may get Galaxy Nexus and Moto RAZR on Jan. 10

Canucks already have a few options when it comes to both the Motorola RAZR (the international name for Verizon's DROID RAZR) and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In a few days, they'll have at least one more. MobileSyrup reports that both phones will be hitting regional carrier Fido next Tuesday. Rogers will also be getting the Galaxy Nexus on the same day, though they've been promoting it for some time. Just one week until either RAZR-thin phones or Ice Cream sandwich comes to Fido's customers - what a decision.

Oh Verizon, why do you vex us so?

Subscribers can get the Galaxy Nexus for $159.99 from either carrier, though naturally you'll have to sign up for a new two-year three-year contract or renew an existing one. Rogers is still planning a release for January.

The crazy Canucks at MobileSyrup have gotten their sticky mitts on a Telus-branded version of the Samsung Galaxy S II X, with a super-sized 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display.
