For Canadian users who have been waiting for a slim yet high-powered Android device, the wait is over and there are various avenues to choose from. Bell, Telus, Fido, and Virgin Mobile have all launched the HTC One S, an Android handset running on 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The HTC One S features Sense 4.0, Beats Audio, and has a 4.3" (540 x 960) super AMOLED touch screen display. It comes with an 8 MP camera with autofocus and LED Flash, along with 1080p HD video capture with stereo sound recording and video stabilization. It's powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB of internal storage. As a bonus, you can get 25 GB of free DropBox storage whether you purchase the phone outright or on a term.

Pricing comes in slightly varied, with Bell offering it up for $99.95 on a 3 year term, or $599.95 no-term. Virgin Mobile has it listed practically the same, at $99.99 on a 3 year term or SuperTab, and $599.99 on a monthly plan. Telus is offering up the One S for $99.99 on a 3 year term as well, but give us a break in price at $569.99 no-term. Lastly, Fido has it priced at $150 on a 3 year agreement, but a low $550 outright.

If the HTC One S sounds like it may be your next Android handset, head to Bell, Telus, Virgin Mobile, or Fido to get yours!

Virgin Mobile has been putting the pressure on their competition recently, offering up a variety of handsets and price plan discounts. Their latest move in an effort to retain more customers, and win over prospective customers, was to reduce their Smartphone data offerings by $5 a month, a much-needed discount with Canada's high-cost data services. The $5 monthly reduction is applicable to the 500 MB, 3 GB, 5GB, and Flexi-Data packages, and is available to both new and existing customers. Existing customers will have to call in to have their package changed, as the price reduction isn't being automatically applied to accounts. Great move, Virgin! Keep the price cuts coming!

Chatr is looking to increase the competition this holiday season by offering up a $10 discount on their price plans until the end of December. The discount will be effective for any customers who sign up before the 31st, and will discount their monthly plan for 6 consecutive months, at which points the price will automatically be bumped back up to the standard cost. It's great to see competition brewing in Canada, as we're seeing all kinds of price drops, discounts, and promotions. Hopefully it won't stop anytime soon!

Rogers customers who own either the Sony Ericsson X10 or X10 Mini have been waiting quite some time for Android 2.1 Eclair to launch for the device, and as of Sunday, it finally has! The updated OS offers several new features and changes to the devices software, including HD 720p video capture, auto-focus, a new lock screen, 2 additional homescreens (for a total of 5), and much more. To get the update, you'll have to head to the Sony Ericsson website, as it isn't currently available for OTA install.

Unfortunately we haven't gotten confirmation of exactly when the Android 2.1 update will be coming to the Sony Ericsson X10 as of yet, but we're pretty sure that it will drop sometime fairly soon. What we do know, however, is what you can expect to see with the OS update. TimeScape will be getting a small update that enables autoscrolling of information so users won't need to enter/exit applications to see full messages. Additionally, users will get 5 homescreens (as opposed to the existing 3), and each one will be capable of holding 20 icons rather than just 16. The other big improvement that's set to come with the update is continuous auto-focus, so when users are recording videos, the device will continually auto-focus based what it is capturing - a nifty feature that is sure to improve video recording on the device. No word yet on whether HD video capture or the LED flash will be enabled, but odds are Sony Ericsson would have mentioned those features, so it isn't looking good.
