LG G2 coming to Canada

We told you about the LG G2 the other day after they announced it, and Tom has it up for consideration in this week's poll.

But here's where it's going:

  • Bell
  • Rogers
  • Sasktel
  • Telus
  • Videotron
  • Wind

Which leaves... essentially nobody out!  Well, they didn't list Fido or Virgin, but they're subsidiaries of Rogers and Bell.  Tbaytel wasn't named either, but they get their phones from Rogers, so it's guaranteed to go there.  So, really, Koodo, Mobilicity and MTS might be left out in the cold on this one.

We've updated the database to reflect the availability, still waiting on pricing.
