At Rogers we pride ourselves on bringing you the newest technologies first.
We were the first carrier in Canada to launch an LTE network. We’ve quickly expanded that network to become the first carrier to offer LTE in four of Canada’s largest cities. And we were the first Canadian carrier to sell an LTE stick and LTE tablet.
It’s this commitment to being first that has allowed us to secure a very limited number of Samsung Galaxy S II LTE smartphones that we’re shipping to a handful of customers on the Rogers Reservations System today.
While we wish we could get this device to everyone who has reserved the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE on the reservations system today, we’re thrilled to be able to deliver on our first-to-market commitment by shipping Canada’s first LTE smartphones.
We’re also excited to confirm that we’ll continue to fulfill orders for the device as early as next week and expect to have enough devices for everyone in the reservations system.
UPDATE (November 3, 2011, 4:26 p.m): We are pleased to confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE devices have arrived and we will begin shipping tomorrow to all customers on the Rogers Reservation System. Please note, as we are trying to get the devices to customers as quickly as possible, delivery status on the Rogers Reservation System will say “in progress” today and remain that way until Monday. The majority of devices will arrive next Monday with the potential for some to arrive as early as Saturday.
