Samsung's popular and affordable Gear VR launched last month in the US, but Canadian residents had to wait an extra few weeks to buy. That's over with now: the device is available through Best Buy, The Source, and Samsung Experience stores across the promised land.




Now for the bad news: whereas Gear VR launched in the US with a cool $99.99 price tag, it's $139.99 in Canada due to the currently weak Canadian dollar.


Best Buy says quantities are limited; The Source's inventory is on backorder and estimates if you order now, your device will ship December 16 (just about in time for the big day, if you're lucky).
