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.

Motorola has officially launched a fairly unique product to Canadians, the Motorola MOTOACTIV. The device looks much like a watch, but features a 1.6? touch screen made of Gorilla Glass, and advertised to be sweat-proof, rain-resistant, and scratch-resistant. So what?s the big deal?

The MOTOACTIV is powered by Android and is a ?cutting-edge GPS fitness tracker, heart rate monitor-enabled, and smart MP3 player? in one. Using GPS and AccuSense technology, it can track your running, walking, cycling, and other workout data including time, distance, speed, calories burned, and heart rate (if paired with a heart rate monitor). It features tight integration with your smart phone as well, allowing you to pair it to receive calls and text messages on the go, in addition to mobile and online access to their ?Training Portal?. As far as MP3 functionality, the MOTOACTIV comes with 8GB of built in memory, and it also offers FM radio capabilities. If you?re looking to extend the device?s functionality even further, you can also pair it with pedometers and bike sensors for more details on your workout or exercise.

The MOTOACTIV is available now in limited quantities Running Room stores, and online at thesource.ca. Motorola let us know that the device would retail for $249.99, though The Source has it listed (and currently out of stock) for $259.99. As for accessories, there are several, including the wristband for $29.99 which is supposed to be included by default. You can pick up a universal clip or soft armband for more wearing options, each for $29.99 as well.

Once again a recall of battery touching the portable computers. After having contacted the representatives of Lenovo in Canada, MobileInCanada learned that if you are among the lucky ones you will have to await 4-6 weeks to ravoir your new battery and that your portable computer will not be portable since you must send your old battery to obtain another from them. This same if it is the fault of Sanyo with which Lenovo buys batteries and not your fault. The batteries aimed by the recall were sold with certain models of ThinkPad scratch pads or separately to be used with these models:

Series T (T43, T43p, T60)
Series X (X60, X60s)
Series R (R51e, R52, R60, R60e)
The batteries aimed by the recall were sold with the new models of scratch pads, in option, or the batteries of the models ci-dessous.

Series R60 and R60e
Series T60 and T60p
Series Z60m, Z61e, Z61m and Z61p

To know if you are among lucky (lol) the outward journeys on the site of Lenovo or to call the center of service to the 1.800.426-7378 24/24.
