You know, we'd be ecstatic if the Galaxy was launched in the beginning of 2009 as opposed to the end of 2009 because there's just so many other Android devices to choose from. In any case, Bell Canada has just announced the Samsung Galaxy for $99.95 with new 3-year contract. You'll get a 3.2-inch AMOLED screen, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and usual slew of connectivity options wrapped up in a rather dated Android 1.5 OS. 

The Samsung Galaxy might've been the most overlooked Android device ever because it was never made available on any North American carrier, until now. Remember, we first saw the Samsung Galaxy back in April and drooled over the hardware--forgive us, this was a time when only the T-Mobile G1 and HTC Magic existed. We're certain that the Galaxy would have succeeded then. But now? Against the Motorola Droid and HTC Hero? We're not so sure.

Bell Canada Launches Samsung Galaxy For $99.95


Doesn't this mean there are now two android phones that have the 3G compatible bands for AT&T, including the HTC Hero on Telus mobile? Hopefully some unlocked used ones will show up on eBay soon...

It has an AMOLED screen, camera with LED flash, and its a Samsung with out touchwiz(at least I think it doesn't have it), I am sold on it.

There is a pretty similar device in the US (except thicker, with a full qwerty keyboard, 3.2 mp cam, and some complain because it's plain.. I don't agree). The Samsung Moment. I have it and love it. The battery life is the only disappointing thing. It does have something this doesn't have. An 800MHz processor. (Specs: No one even mentions the Moment. Anyway, it has the AMOLED display and I love the fact that is has a full physical qwerty. It doesn't have touchflo either which I guess makes it very fast. Also, the camera on my phone is awesome! The flash will take a great pic in a dark room.
