From the moment you pick up the Samsung Galaxy S6, the upgrades to the mobile device are immediately obvious, and they’re welcome considering how the new phone feels much more premium than any of its predecessors.
Samsung Canada announced today that the new Galaxy Note 4, which includes the newly reimagined S-Pen, will launch on October 24 in Charcoal Black and Frost White with all major Canadian carriers and retailers.
The GATE and Samsung want to get you ready for the first day of spring with a giveaway that will put a smile on your face with two devices that were made for each other: Samsung’s Note 3 and GALAXY Gear, valued at $1100.
The Carlu in Toronto was glowing last night, thanks to some flashy wristbands, as guests and VIPs were treated to performers, artists, and music to promote the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy SIII, the company’s latest phone which became available today.
I have a story to share about a great phone that has made me a little angry this week. If you’ve dealt with cell phone companies at all in the last couple of years though, I’m betting you won’t be too surprised.
Whenever I’m at a press event and I run into James, I know at some point in the night we’re going to be laughing at the latest dumb move by Canadian mobile phone companies.

The only place where the phone loses me is when I actually make a call and boom, every application on the phone opens.
Blackberrys have obviously become synonymous with business. You can’t walk through any public place in downtown Toronto without seeing someone in a suit madly typing away on that mini keyboard with a dull, glazed expression on their face. Whether this is a bad thing is questionable, but the Blackberry has been trying to change its stripes with average cell phone users, and that’s essentially why the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 was created.
Whether you call it imitation or just following a smart trend, I have to admit that on first glance I dismissed the LG Shine as a knock off of another very popular phone that features brushed metal and an ultra-thin design.
