While Bell has been stacking up their Android line-up, Rogers has been fairly quiet with theirs, until now. A few days back, Rogers confirmed that they will be launching two Android-powered 3D handsets, the HTC Evo 3D and the LG Optimus 3D. Both have impressive features as Android devices alone, but the addition of the 3D display and stereoscopic/3D capable camera are definitely unique and will set these handsets apart from others.

The HTC Evo 3D features a 4.3" (540x960) 3D LCD touchscreen display, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense. It's powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, and comes with 1GB of internal storage. It comes with a dual 5MP camera with dual-LED flash that can take 2MP stereoscopic photos, and record 720p 3D video, or full 1080p HD video. It also has a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and supports Wi-Fi(b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS connectivity, in addition to TV-out functionality.

The LG Optimus 3D has similar specifications, with a 4.3" (480x800) 3D LCD touchscreen display, and Android 2.2 Froyo initially. It's powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and comes with 8GB of internal storage. The Optimus 3D also has a dual 5MP camera with LED flash, and can record 720p 3D video or 1080p HD video. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi(b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, in addition to an HDMI port.

Existing Rogers customers can reserve either of these devices online by logging into their Rogers account, and using their newly introduced Reservation System. No word yet on pricing or an exact launch date, but we should see both of the devices come available soon.

A recently leaked photo of KOODO's internal systems show a test entry in their inventory called "Koodo Mobile internet key test". No word yet on which internet stick they will release, or what sort of pricing we'll see, but we'll keep an eye out for any new information. KOODO has been doing a great job of expanding their line-up to include more data-oriented devices, hopefully it doesn't stop any time soon!

Research In Motion has always focused on functionality over style and appearance, however they've recently acquired The Astonishing Tribe, a UI and design company that should help spice up the BlackBerry and QNX operating systems we're hearing so much about recently. According to some rumours circulating online, the acquisition of TAT may have been a move towards offering a 3D capable BlackBerry device in the future, though this definitely isn't confirmed. No word yet on when RIM would be launching a device supporting 3D content, but if this rumour gains any more momentum, we'll be sure to let you know. What do you think about 3D mobile phones?

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.

KOODO Mobile has recently launched the LG Cookie Plus, which features a 3" (240 x 400) touchscreen display, 3MP camera capable of recording video, along with bluetooth connectivity and an FM radio. While the Cookie Plus doesn't run on Android, it does have a customizable 3 screen interface, and should appeal to the social crowd as it comes with Twitter and Facebook widgets. The LG Cookie Plus is available now from KOODO Mobile for as little as $25 using their Tab system, or $175 contract/tab free.

Telus and Rogers have officially launched the BlackBerry Bold 9780 refresh device, which is almost identical to the Bold 9700, but with the addition of a 5MP camera and the BlackBerry 6 operating system (with increased memory to better handle it). The Bold 9780 is available from Telus for $99.99 on a 3 year term, while Rogers is offering it up for $50 more at $149.99 with a 3 year contract. Outright pricing comes in the same from both carriers at $499.99 contract-free. If you're looking to get a BlackBerry handset, this is definitely one worth checking out, though Bold 9700 users may want to hold off a bit longer to see exactly how well BlackBerry 6 runs on their device, with reports coming in fairly positive from those who have installed leaked and unofficial versions.

Throughout the last few days, both Bell and Rogers Samsung Galaxy Tab pricing seems to have been revealed, with Bell coming in at the $649.95 mark, and Rogers internal systems listing it at $674.99 outright. Especially with Rogers pricing, bare in mind that these numbers could change before launch, but so far it seems that what Canadians are looking at for the Android powered tablet. The Bell Galaxy Tab is expected to ship on November 16th, so hopefully we'll see both carriers stocked up shortly afterwards.

For those who may not have been keeping up on this 7" Android tablet, it features a 600 x 1024 display, a 1GHz processor, and 512MB RAM. Coming in both 16GB and 32GB models, the Tab runs on Android 2.2 Froyo featuring TouchWiz UI and also comes with a 3.15MP camera with LED flash, and a front-facing 1.3MP camera. Connectivity options include HSPA, Wi-Fi (b, g, n), and bluetooth.

WIND Mobile seems to be focusing on versatility and a broader appeal more and more as time goes on, and this latest rumor definitely helps support that. Apparently, WIND Mobile will soon announce their WINDtab hardware payment option, which is very similar to KOODO's tab, and Virgin Mobile's relatively new SuperTab options. Basically, customers will be able to get up to $150 off of the purchase price of hardware, with a tab being kept of the outstanding amount. Each month, 10% of the customer's bill will be applied to the current tab amount owing, and customers have the option of paying off more if they choose. Users will also have the option of upgrading their device at any time, but will have to pay off the WINDtab balance before doing so.

No word yet on exactly when the WINDtab will be announced or launch, but we should see it relatively soon. It's certainly good to see carriers of all kinds focusing on bringing more options to their customers, and this should definitely help WIND Mobile appeal to those who want low costs but many options to choose from. What do you think about WIND Mobile introducing a tab system?

More rumours are making their way around the internet, this time around regarding the BlackBerry Bold refresh device - the 9780. The Bold 9780 is almost identical to the 9700 model, but offers up a few internal improvements(memory) that will help it handle the newly released BlackBerry 6 operating system, along with an improved 5MP camera. Apparently the device will be launching on October 21st for $149 on Virgin's SuperTab or on a 3 year contract, though as always, this information can't be guaranteed until officially announced by the carrier.

BlackBerry users, will you picking up a Bold 9780, or have you made the jump to the Torch 9800 already?
