The Samsung Gio was announced for overseas carriers back in May of this year. The Gio was announced alongside the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Fit and Mini as well. Like the other three the Samsung Gio is a mid -range Android device.
The Samsung Gio is now available on Bell and Virgin Mobile in Canada. It has a 3.2″ screen, 3.5 megapixel rear facing camera and Android 2.3 “Gingerbread”. The Samsung Galaxy Gio has already been released in South Africa, Europe and parts of Asia. It’s compact size actually makes it a fairly popular device.
What’s more amazing is the pricing, now remember this is in Canadian dollars but you can own the Samsung Gio for $249 and it slides down to $29 with a three year contract at Bell and it’s even cheaper at Virgin Mobile. Over at Virgin you can pick it up for a whopping $149 outright or free on the three year.
