You can reserve your LG Optimus G from Rogers now

Ever since LG announced that it was going to produce its most powerful smartphone ever, the LG Optimus G has created a loud buzz. And why shouldn't it? After all, it has a 4.7 inch screen with pixel density of 318ppi and the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 under the hood. LG even stuffed in 2GB of RAM on the device. If you live in Canada and have decided that this is going to be your next handset, you can reserve the phone at Rogers for $40.

Rogers is expected to launch the device in the middle of  November. Perhaps that November 13th date on the picture of the device is giving away a clue. The carrier's website shows the phone priced at $599.99 off-contract or $129.99 if you're willing to sign the traditional Canadian three-year contract. The version of the phone heading to Rogers sports the 13MP camera on back instead of the 8MP shooter found on some North American models of the phone.

If you're a Rogers customer, you can reserve your LG Optimus G by clicking on the sourcelink.

Well for 3 years you get a phone that is future-proof and is already more powerful then some low end pc's.

I personally dont believe in futureproofing, just cant do it, there'll always be something newer and better next year

That's how it will always be. You can't have top of the line forever. Even if you buy a new phone every time a new one comes out, you are just wasting your money.

Well the unlocked iPhone 5 will be at least $650 for the 16Gig model so for me this one is definitely worth $600

the iphone 5 is ranging from 600 to 800 dollars and thats only for 16gb! :( Id say if any phone is worth that much money so far it would be this, the One X+, and the Note 2 paying that much for an iphone is asinine!

Agreed, myself I wouldn't get the new unlocked iPhone even if it had the current Galaxy Nexus price ($350 last time I checked) but there are/will be a lot of people that do/will. The Note II is THE phone to have right now if you're going for pure hardware, but after being spoiled with fast updates and second to none community support for my Galaxy Nexus, it will be Nexus only for me from now on. I started talking about Nexus I forgot this was about another phone hehe

Rogers will never let you buy any high end device without service, believe me I've tried. What you have to do to get the phone off contract is: 1. Pay a month's worth of service, otherwise the computer wont allow the sale. 2. Pay the activation fee. 3. Cancel the service on the SAME DAY as you bought the device, as Rogers requires 30 days notification for cancellations even if you're not on a contract. You do it later, they'll ding you for a second month. So realistically, expect the actual price to be ~$100 more than what they list because of all the bulls**t Rogers does. Also, Canadian tax is 13% in most provinces, so yeah... Not cheap. Not to mention that Rogers lock most of their devices to hell. But thats just how Rogers/Telus/Bell makes money, sign here, and hahahahaha, see you in 3 years.
