We?ve been keeping you up to date regarding Rogers and Fido?s upcoming Optimus L7 launch, and have more information for you. The Rogers version should be coming very soon, with speculation pointing to the next few weeks. Rogers stores have started to receive accessories for entry-level handset, so we should see it soon.

The LG Optimus L7 features a 4.3? (480 x 800) touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and a 5 MP camera with LED flash and basic VGA video capture capabilities. It?s supposed to run Android 4.0 ICS however, which is a good sign for those looking for affordability yet up-to-date software. It?s powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, and other features include its front-facing camera, and its Wi-FI, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity.

Pricing isn?t currently available, but stay tuned as we?ll keep you updated on the LG Optimus L7 from Rogers!

Samsung?s Galaxy Note has been a popular device in Canada, and has proven to be one of the best available for those who don?t mind the large size. And while the Tab line-up of tablets has been important in the progress of Android tablets in the market, it?s no surprise that Samsung is pushing the ?Note? name further. Scheduled for release sometime in the coming months, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 should merge the two series together, and has the specifications required to be successful.

Originally, the Note 10.1 was demonstrated to include a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor and the S Pen stylus, but no room in the hardware itself to store it when not in use. Now, thanks to newly leaked information, we know that the processor has been upgraded to a quad-core Exynos processor with a powerful Mali-T604 graphics chip. Additionally, Samsung has incorporated an S Pen slot, a move that makes a lot of sense. Other features include its 10.1? (800 x 1280) touch screen display and 3.15 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. The Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, comes with 1 GB of RAM, and is set to be a Wi-Fi only tablet.

While nothing has been confirmed regarding a Canadian launch, Samsung has been relatively good about getting their devices to Canada recently, so we should see the device shortly after the United States does. Pricing is still unknown as well, but we?ll keep you updated on any further information throughout the coming weeks and months!

We recently let you know that Telus was getting set to release the white Samsung Galaxy Note, and are happy to let you know that it?s now available! If you?re not a Telus customer or aren?t willing to make the switch, we also have good news for you, as Bell and Rogers are getting ready to launch it as well. Bell?s internal documentation confirms an April 10th release, while Rogers tweeted that it will be available from them as early as next week.

As for pricing, all 3 carriers are offering it for the same price as the standard black version. For Telus and Bell, that puts the cost at the $200 mark on a 3 year term, or $780 outright. Rogers also has it at $200 with a 3 year contract, with no term pricing at $650. As expected, features and specifications are also the same as the black version, boasting a 5.3? (800 x 1280) display, an 8MP camera, and running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with an upgrade to ICS ?coming soon?.

Research in Motion officially announced their intentions to launch an HSPA+ and LTE equipped PlayBook around this time last year, but nothing has made an appearance as of yet. Today, however, some good news surfaced ? The FCC (United States) has officially approved the device, which brings us one step closer to its release. To top it off, leaked information that has been floating around the internet recently points to Bell intending for an ?early April? launch, though they clearly state that launch dates are subject to change.

Rumoured features and specifications for the HSPA/LTE enabled PlayBook include a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and NFC capabilities. Unfortunately, further details are currently unavailable, and rumours are even proving sparse. We?ll keep you updated on any new information as it becomes available!

Just as everybody expected, Apple announced their new iPad model today. It features a variety of minor upgrades over the iPad 2, but features a couple of major improvements such as the display and 4G LTE connectivity. The 9.7? screen, with an incredible resolution of 2048 x 1536, is being called the ?Retina? display despite it missing the mark that the iPhone 4 hits. This might not be the end of the world, however, since users typically hold the tablet further from their eyes than their smartphones. The other major plus is the 4G LTE option, with Rogers, Bell, and Telus already confirmed to be launching the tablet.

Other features include upgraded quad-core graphics processing and a 5MP rear facing camera with face detection, capable of 1080p video recording with image stabilization. As for battery life, Apple is claiming that it will get 10 hours of battery life, reduced to 9 hours for LTE connected iPads. Physical dimensions come in slightly bulkier than the iPad 2, at 9.4mm thin and 1.4lbs.

So when can you get your hands on one? It?s up for pre-order now on Apple?s website, and is confirmed to be coming to Rogers, Telus and Bell. On Apple?s website, they mention that pre-order shipments are expected for delivery between March 16th and 20th. Pricing for the Wi-Fi model comes in at $519 for 16GB model, $619 for the 32GB, and $719 for 64GB. The Wi-Fi + LTE option will cost you $649 for the 16GB version, $749 for the 32GB, and $849 for the 64GB. It will be available in both black and white. As a result of the near-future launch, Apple has reduced the price of the iPad 2 by $100 for each model ? good news for those looking for some savings!

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.

Telus has surprisingly kept its Mike network active, and have actually launched another device for users of the push-to-talk service. The Motorola i420 is now available for $249.99 contract-free, and offers the Direct Connect feature that made the network, and compatible devices popular years ago. It features a 1.79" (128x160) display, flip form factor, and a number of basic features including bluetooth, GPS, and a VGA camera. While this may not serve as much news for regular consumers, the fact that Telus isn't letting up on this network should be a good indication for business owners and managers that they can continue to rely on it for direct (and instant) communication between its members.

Earlier this month, we let you know that Google announced Honeycomb 3.1 for tablets, and the Motorola XOOM got it almost immediately for U.S. customers. Soon afterwards, Motorola Canada let users know, via Facebook, that the update would be coming Canadians "soon". Now, they have come forward on Facebook once again, this time stating "Our best estimate is that it will be available in the next couple of months."

While the news that Motorola is still working on the update is good, it does come as a bit of a disappointment to XOOM owners that it will take a couple of months. Hopefully they will take action with all of the feedback they've received and push it out sooner, but only time will tell.

Sasktel has been making the news quite a bit since they launched their 3G network several months back, and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down. According to several statements made by the Saskatchewan carrier, they will soon be launching 3 new devices - the HTC Incredible S, the iPhone 4, and the Samsung Galaxy 550.

The HTC Incredible S, which is expected to launch "sometime in April" features a 4" (480x800) touchscreen display, 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video capture, along with a secondary 1.3MP front-facing camera. Powered by a 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, the Incredible S comes with 1.1GB of internal storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and the HTC Incredible S will run Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, along with HTC Sense UI 3.0. Virgin Mobile, and possibly Bell, are also expected to launch the Incredible S.

Next up is the Samsung Galaxy 550, which is also expected sometime in April. The Galaxy 550 runs on Android Eclair 2.1. Beyond that, there aren't many details available regarding this upcoming Android device, but it looks like it will be a mid-range handset. No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep an eye out for more details!

Lastly, comes the iPhone 4. Sasktel has put up a registration page for those interested in receiving updates regarding the launch of the popular device on Sasktel. The release date is still unknown, but it's definitely a good sign that they have implemented a registration page. Hopefully we'll see the iPhone 4 launch before Apple's next generation of mobile device is announced, which will likely happen sometime this summer.

Overall, great job from Sasktel expanding their line-up to include several options for Saskatchewan residents!
