We recently let you know that Nokia and Rogers are getting set to launch the Lumia 900, but recent information being discussed online points to more from Nokia as it relates to Windows. Apparently, Nokia is looking to build and send out a batch of Windows 8 tablets running in Microsoft?s ?Metro? UI by the end of the year. No word on a Canadian release specifically, but with the tablet market heating up and another strong competitor coming on board with Windows 8, we should see it eventually.

There aren?t many other details available, though it?s expected to be powered by a Quallcomm dual-core chipset, and offers simple but not seamless support for existing Windows applications. Windows 8 is expected to launch this fall, and manufacturers such as Dell and HP are expected to have a strong presence early on. Could Nokia compete with these manufacturers in such a crowded tablet market?

Montreal residents who use the city's Metro service will be happy to hear that the STM (Societe de transport de Montreal) is finalizing a deal with Extenet that will result in cellular coverage within the subway system. The coverage would be available in 68 Metro stations throughout the city, and will be rolled out in stages. It's great to see these improvements, as reception has only been somewhat-available in very few sections of the system thus far.

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!
