Want a Galaxy Fold? Pre-orders will get going Thursday

It's a hefty price tag - $2600CDN outright.  But that does include their 'concierge' service which will include a screen replacement if you're concerned about the build quality of it still.

Preorders will start Thursday November 28th and you should be going to your nearest experience store to do so (none here in TBay...), and then be able to pick up the following Friday (Dec 6).
