Samsung has recently stated via Twitter that the Canadian Galaxy S III launch has been delayed. The release of the highly anticipated Android device has been pushed back by 7 days, and is now expected to be released on June 27th. The delay will apply to all carriers launching the handset, which is pretty well all of them.

The delay, according to Samsung, is due to the extreme worldwide demand for the handset. While it may be frustrating to wait the extra week, most people can agree that such a widespread simultaneous release within Canada is still a great thing.

Hopefully there aren't any additional delays, but we'll be sure to keep you updated on any further information on the Samsung Galaxy S III as it becomes available!

Rogers and Telus recently re-introduced their $30 6GB data promotions, and now Bell has come forward with their own. Unlike Rogers and Telus however, the expiration date of the promotion was made available via internal documents for Bell, which is set at September 30th. Like previous years, however, this expiration date may be extended based on demand and device release, though it's a good idea to sign up early if you're interested.

As with the other carriers, the $30 for 6GB plan will require you to renew to a new 3 year term, or sign up for a new contract.

We recently let you know that Videotron would be launching their 3G+ network today, and we've got all of the information rounded up in one place to keep you updated!

During the press conference, Videotron announced their 4 types of price plans available to customers on the new network, in addition to four handsets that are available to Quebec residents should they choose to go with Videotron for their mobile service. Shortly afterwards, the website was updated to include the remaining devices. The price plans now available are:

Zone Plans - Videotron offers the largest urban zones in Quebec, and is offering up a couple tiers of plans for those located in either Montreal or Quebec city. The options include an unlimited in-zone calling option for just over $30/month, or an unlimited cross-Canada calling package for about $50/monthly. Both include SMS, MMS, and e-mail, in addition to 50MB of data usage.

Unlimited Evenings & Weekends - For $24.95, users can get 100 anytime minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends, and unlimited SMS, MMS, and e-mail

Anytime Plans - 50 anytime minutes starting at approximately $15/month

Sharing Plans - Videotron is also offering up sharing plans, starting at just $36.95 for two lines. This option allows the users to share a minimum of 200 anytime minutes, and unlimited evenings and weekends.

Videotron will be eventually be launching twelve 3G+ compatible devices, and every handset supports Videotron's mobile content including 28 on-demand channels, and remote PVR programming. Among the devices now available are:

HTC/Google Nexus One - Running on Android 2.2 Froyo, this is the first handset available in Canada running on the latest version of the Android OS. This device features a 3.7" (480x800) AMOLED display, 5MP camera with LED flash, a 1GHz processor, and 512MB of RAM/ROM. This device has never been offered through a carrier in Canada before, so Videotron should see a large number of customers jump on-board for this handset.

Garmin Nuvifone A50 - The second of the Android handsets now available from Videotron, the Nuvifone A50 features a 3.5" (320x480) touch screen, a 3MP camera, and of course GPS navigation. Along with Wi-Fi support, this handset is perfect for those looking for highly functional GPS capabilities.

Motorola XT720 - The Motorola XT720 is also an Android powered device, featuring a 3.7" (480x854) touch screen, 8MP camera with flash, 720p HD video capture, and an HDMI out port. This handset is powered by a 720MHz processor, and has 512MB ROM/256MB RAM.

Huawei U3200 - This device features a 2.2" (240x320) display, 3.2MP camera, and is a slider handset with a standard numeric keypad.

Other devices - BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Pearl 9100, Samsung Gravity 2, HuaweiU7519, Nokia 5230, and the Huawei E1381 Mobile Internet key.

Other details covered in the press conference include the removal of 2 and 3 year contracts, their dynamic bandwidth allocation, and a few plans for the future regarding the network technology. Among these plans include dual-channel HSPA technology that will bring their maximum download speed from 21Mbps, up to 42Mbps. They are also offering an unconditional 30 day money-back guarantee on all handset purchases/service agreements.

All around, it looks like Videotron has done a decent job of offering choices beyond those of other carriers. Being the first carrier to officially offer a device running Android 2.2, and offering a large selection of handsets and services, it looks like they've ensured some healthy competition in Quebec!

As you know, Chatr Wireless launched today, offering yet another option for Canadians residing in major cities looking for an affordable and simple solution for their mobile services. We got the opportunity to speak with Garrick Tiplady, the Senior VP of Chatr, and this new brand from Rogers is definitely one to look out for.

Chatr launched today in 5 major cities(zones) across Canada: Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver, with a Montreal launch planned for this fall. Customers living in these areas can pick up one of four devices, and can use their service in any Chatr zone without worrying about long distance or roaming charges. The device line-up, which ranges from a simple bar phone to a sliding full QWERTY messaging device, is expected to remain the same for some time, and includes 4 phones that are offered contract-free:

- The "essential" Nokia 1661 - $60
- The "flip" LG GB125R - $75
- The "slider" Nokia 2680 - $95
- The "QWERTY" Samsung Gravity - $130

During the conversation, Tiplady let us know that Chatr is focused on delivering a worry-free experience, at the root of which are 3 things - simplicity, certainty, and quality. Keeping things simple, Chatr offers only two price plans, and makes it very easy to understand offers. Ensuring customers know exactly what to expect, the price plans available are the $35 Unlimited Talk and $45 Unlimited Talk & Text packages, so the possibility of unexpected overage or pay-per-use charges is significantly reduced. Finally, Chatr boasts a reliable experience, using Rogers' physical network to provide excellent coverage that Canadians have come to trust.

With other discount brands launching mobile internet sticks recently, we asked if we could expect the same thing in Chatr's future. In response to customer demand, Chatr is focusing on talk and text services only, with no intentions to launch data services as of now.

Offering unique options for payment, customers can either sign up for "no worries auto-pay", which is a pre-authorized payment service that keeps things as simple as possible. The second option is to top up your account before your anniversary date (day of the month you originally signed up) each month using your credit card or top-up vouchers from Chatr Wireless retail locations.

The main thing we got out of this is that Chatr aims to keep things simple, offering a limited selection of handsets and price plans, and focusing on users who know what they want without hassle or confusion.

Canadian mobile phone users are one step closer to video calling friends, family, and clients across competing mobile networks as TELUS, Rogers and Bell today announced the successful completion of two-way mobile video calling trials between carriers. Video calling lets clients create a ?see-what-I-can-see' connection with other callers, enabling them to do things like share special moments or get advice on a birthday gift before they buy.

Mobile video calling is currently available through several carriers in Canada, but both callers must be on the same carrier's network using compatible handsets. When inter-carrier mobile video calling is launched video calling will be possible across multiple carrier networks and will create North America's largest two-way mobile video calling community.

?Mobile video calling is a richer communications experience for family, friends and business contacts,? said Ibrahim Gedeon, chief technology officer at TELUS. ?This successful trial involving TELUS, Bell and Rogers is a milestone in the Canadian mobile community.?

?We are proud to be part of the first inter-carrier partnership in North America to enable clients to call each other using video capabilities,? said Stephen Howe, chief technology officer for Bell Mobility. ?By breaking down the barriers between video calling clients in Canada, we anticipate strong demand for the service ? as we saw with past inter-carrier initiatives such as text and picture messaging.?
