Here’s a quick update for all you potential Samsung Galaxy S5 customers. Future Shop and Best Buy will be hosting a viewing centre for the device prior to launch in five locations spread around the great expanse of our fair country:
- Mississauga: 5900 Mavis Rd. (near Britannia)
- Calgary: Shawnessy Town Centre, 350R Shawville Blvd.SE (at Shawville Gate)
- Edmonton: 4250 – 137th Ave. (at 42 St. NW)
- South Edmonton Common: 1320 99th St. NW (at Parsons Rd. NW)
- Downtown Vancouver: 798 Granville St. (at Robson St.)
- Victoria: 3450 Uptown Blvd. (at Douglas St.)

- Best Buy West Edmonton: 17539 Stony Plain Rd. NW (near 178 St. NW)

The device will be on display starting Saturday, March 29th and will hopefully provide potential buyers enough of a preview to decide whether they want to take the plunge. It’s unfortunate that it’s only being shown at such a small number of Future Shop and Best Buy locations, but that’s the way it goes when supplies are tight.
