Feb 14, 2012

Erin Heatherton, Chanel Iman and Candice Swanepoel bring passion to Toronto Eaton Centre

MISSISSAUGA, ON – February 14, 2012 - Samsung Canada, the leading supplier of mobile phones in the Canadian marketplace, announced today the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note™ in Canada. To celebrate the launch of this innovative device, Samsung is hosting International Supermodels Erin Heatherton, Chanel Iman and Candice Swanepoel to celebrate in this ‘noteworthy’ event at Toronto Eaton Centre.

Fans will be able to experience the full capabilities of the Galaxy Note with an autograph session courtesy of the Samsung Galaxy Note. Photos will be taken on the Galaxy Note and shared on the vivid 5.3” display. Fans will also receive a customized passion note from the celebrity that will be created on the Galaxy Note with a creative tool called the S Pen™, which delivers fast, responsive and precise control to create fine lines and detail on the device display, much like an ink pen and pad of paper.

“The Galaxy Note allows Canadians to pursue their passions in a unique, stylish way, which is why the device is available on the most passionate day of the year – Valentine’s Day,” said Paul Brannen, Vice President, Mobile Communications at Samsung Canada. “The Note delivers the fastest browsing experience in the country through the use of LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks and we are excited to work with our carrier and retail partners to provide consumers with best in class mobile experiences.”

Providing consumers with an all-in-one device, the Samsung Galaxy Note is the first smartphone to combine a 5.3” touchscreen with Samsung’s new S Pen, a precise instrument that allows users to capture, create and share content and information in new ways. Sleek and stylish, the Galaxy Note delivers the convenience and portability of a smartphone combined with the power of a tablet, allowing for mobile productivity – anytime, anywhere.
