This week may not have been incredibly packed with news in the mobile world, but it was still easy to miss a few stories here and there. Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of wireless for the week of January 2, 2012:

Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming to Rogers, Fido and Telus

The Galaxy Nexus has been available on Bell and Virgin Mobile for nearly a month now, and other Canadian carriers are jumping on the bandwagon as well. Telus tweeted out a statement that the flagship device will be available on January 13th, and Samsung Canada sent out a tweet mentioning that it's coming out on Rogers the same day. We've also heard from several other carriers, such as Fido, WIND, Videotron, and Mobilicity, that the Nexus is "coming soon" to their stores. [The Verge, MobileSyrup]

HTC rumored to bring two quad-core phones to MWC 2012

We know, we know -- we're just getting started with CES 2012, and the rumors about the upcoming MWC are already flying. This week's rumor involves HTC's plans; the manufacturer's certainly going to have a presence at the show, no doubt, but Digitimes reports that two quad-core devices are in the works (the HTC Edge as well as another mystery handset) and should be making their presence known there. There's no official confirmation on the story at this point. [Stuff, Digitimes]
