The marketing campaign for the Galaxy S has been promoted exclusively under the Bell banner. But according to leaked documents, Virgin Mobile employees are being offered online courses to learn about the features of the Galaxy S. Bell has made a big push for the Galaxy S with a Samsung Mobile sponsored outdoor concert in Toronto yesterday. 2000 people gathered around Union Station for a free performance from Canadian rockers Metric. The Galaxy S will be available through Bell retail stores as of Friday the 6th of August. We can expect to see Virgin Mobile offer the smart phone shortly after that.
Virgin Mobile Canada head, Robert Blumenthal, announced last December that the carrier would be stepping up its game in offering higher end smart phones. They now have added the iPhone 4, HTC legend among others. Bell acquired full control over Virgin Mobile Canada back in 2009 and since then we have seen strong strategic positioning between the 3 big name carriers and the discount providers. Stay tuned for pricing and release dates under the Virgin Mobile brand.
