Well now I just feel like Canada’s making fun of me. The Samsung Galaxy S II may be a few months old to the rest of the world but its still the king of Android phones right now. The super slim Samsung phone was released on Bell Mobility in Canada just over a week ago, and now Bell is offering the king for just $19.95 Candian with a three year contract. Three years is a long time in the smartphone world, but considering Americans still have to shell out upwards of $600 to $700 to import a Galaxy S II, this contract may be worth it.
I’m not sure what more there is to say about this monster of a phone anymore. 4.3″ Super AMOLED+ screen, 1.2 GHz Exynos dual-core chip, thinner than an iPhone 4, the list of specs that will make you drool goes on and on. The phone is so tempting that some, like our own Vince Nguyen, couldn’t help but shell out the extra dough to get one of these bad boys imported. Our neighbors up north not only have access to subsidized prices, but a price so low you would think the phone was a year and a half old.
With the low low price of $19.95 comes a 3 year contract though. For those of you unaware, Canadian carriers sell phones with either a 1, 2, 3 year, or no contract with a different price point for each option. Strangely enough, 2 and 1 year contracts will net you the phone for $549 and $579 each while buying the phone off contract from Bell costs just $449. Silliness aside, $19.95 is a great deal for the Galaxy S II if you can stomach the contract length. If you are just such a Canadian, then stop sitting there taunting me and go get it!
UPDATE: Sorry guys looks like it really was too good to be true. It was a glitch, which Bell has since fixed. 3-year price is $169.95 Canadian.
