Bell, TELUS launching the Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE soon

Two Canadian carriers are interested to bring the Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE to its customers, Bell and TELUS. The first of the two will go ahead with the device launch on November 1st even though its PTT LTE network won’t go live until the first half of 2013. In other words, until that part is cleared, Bell customers will be “stuck” to still-solid HSPA+ speeds.

As for TELUS, it will get a head start, with plans to start selling the phone before the end of October.

Price was not unveiled, but MobileSyrup claims that the SIM-free device will go for around $400-$500.

Again, the rugged Galaxy Rugby LTE packs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch WVGA screen, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing one, 1850mAh battery, NFC, DLNA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and so on.
