Fido has added yet another affordable but impressive option to their line-up of Android devices. The Sony Xperia U is now available for free on a 3-year term or just $300.00 as an outright purchase on Fido's website or at Fido locations. The Sony Xperia U features a 3.5" (480 x 854) scratch resistant touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera capable of 720p recording, as well as a secondary front-facing camera for video-chat. The Sony Xperia U is powered by dual-core 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM and has 4 GB of internal storage. For now, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but Fido indicates that it will be upgraded to 4.0 in the near future. While it may be a modest phone compared to more recent releases, the Sony Xperia U has a great deal to be desired especially for such an affordable price. Be sure to check out Fido for upgrade and purchase options.

Bell recently launched the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE, and now Sasktel is advertising it on their site. Initially they had it labelled as ?Coming soon?, however that label has now disappeared, indicating that it?s now available from the Saskatchewan carrier. Users will be able to benefit from the improved resolution, processor and overall enhancements over the standard Galaxy S II, however LTE connectivity won?t be coming until this fall.

The S II HD LTE features a 4.65? (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass. It?s powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB of storage. Currently, the S II HD LTE runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though an Ice Cream Sandwich update is expected in the coming weeks. Other notable features include its 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, along with a secondary 2 MP camera.

If you?re in the market for a new Android handset and can?t wait for the Galaxy S III, be sure to check out the Galaxy S II HD LTE from Sasktel. It is available now for $129.99 on a 3 year term, or $569.99 monthly.

Motorola has sent out a press release officially announcing that the MOTOLUXE is heading to Canada, with a scheduled Q2 release. This new Android handset from Motorola features a new user-interface that ?learns? about your use and tailors certain parts of your home screen to your behaviour. For instance, the contacts you interact with most often will have larger icons than the rest on your home screen, and the ?Activity Graph? will display your most used applications. The device also has a multi-coloured LED indicator, something BlackBerry handsets (with the use of 3rd party apps for advanced customization) have had for some time.

Other features include its 4? (480 x 854)) touch screen display, and 8 MP camera with flash and HD video capture. It has an 800 MHz processor, 1 GB of internal storage, and 512 MB of RAM. The current version of the handset available outside of Canada runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so we?ll probably see this at launch as well.

Pricing and carrier availability are currently unconfirmed, though rumours around the internet point to Bell and Virgin Mobile picking this device up. With the modest specifications and unique, software-oriented approach, we should see the Motorola MOTOLUXE on the lower end of the pricing spectrum.
