It has been some time since RIM announced the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, but Virgin Mobile recently came forward reminding Canadians that they will be launching it soon. Posted on their Twitter profile, Virgin Mobile Canada stated "well be getting the bb 9900 super soon!"

No word on exactly when "super soon" is, but hopefully we'll see it launch in first part half of the summer. The Bold 9900 is a big step up for RIM and BlackBerry products, offering the familiar Bold shape and design, but also including a touchscreen. The 9900 has a 2.8" (640x480) touchscreen display, along with the standard trackpad and full QWERTY keyboard. It also features a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. Other features include 8GB of internal storage, HSPA connectivity reaching 14.4Mbps, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS, and even possibly NFC support in the future.

Though the hardware is seeing a variety of big improvements over current BlackBerry devices, the OS will also be updated. BlackBerry OS 7.0 won't be available for existing models, and will begin its life with the 9900/9930. It features a variety of improvements and additional features, including an updated browser with full HTML5 support and faster rendering, in addition to "BlackBerry Balance", a feature that helps keep work/home content separate from each other.

No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep you updated with any further information that is made available.

Those who have been waiting for even more options when it comes to purchasing a tablet are in luck, as HP's first webOS tablet is coming in mid-July. The Wi-Fi only version is apparently set to cost $519.99 for the 16GB version, while the 32GB model will be $619.99.

The TouchPad runs on HP webOS 3.0, and features a 9.7" (768x1024) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. It seemingly only comes with a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and offers bluetooth and Wi-Fi (b, g, n) connectivity.

While it may be worth checking out if iOS, Android, or the PlayBook's QNX platform isn't for you, the TouchPad's pricing, and less-than-comparable specifications in some areas could result in a tough launch for HP. Only time will tell, however, so keep an eye out come mid-July!

Looking to take advantage of all that Android and Skype have to offer, LG has created a Skype Edition of the LG Optimus Black, and Telus is set to carry it. They officially announced that the device is Coming soon, though no specific date has been provided as of yet.

The Optimus Black runs on Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, and features a 4" (480x800) touchscreen display. It is powered by a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and comes with 2GB of onboard storage.

As for connectivity, the Optimus Black has Wi-Fi (b, g, n, and hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS.

No word yet on pricing for the "first Skype branded phone on the Canadian market", though you will apparently get 60 minutes worth of international Skype calling credits at purchase. Additional credits can be billed to your monthly Telus invoice, making this a truly unique option for Skype users.

A while back, we let you know that Samsung confirmed that the Samsung Infuse would be coming our way, but we haven't heard a whole lot about it since. Now, rumours online are pointing to a near-future launch for this Android handset. Apparently the handset will launch with Rogers, though official confirmation is yet to come.

The Infuse 4G features a giant 4.5" (480x800) Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of storage internally, and has an 8MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture. Additionally, the Infuse comes with a secondary 1.3MP camera, and connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS.

Hopefully this doesn't mean Rogers is ruled out to carry the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II!

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an impressive Android tablet, and having recently launched in the United States, Canadians were left wondering when we may see it available. Luckily, Samsung Canada quickly updated their site to include the Tab 10.1, marking it as "Coming Soon!"

Furthermore, information was recently leaked online stating that the Wi-Fi only version will be available sometime in July, while the 3G version will follow close behind, expected to launch sometime in August. Other great news regarding the 3G version - Rogers, Bell, and Telus will all be carrying the Honeycomb tablet!

To recap on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1's features and specs, it has a 10.1" (800x1280) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It features a 8MP camera with LED flash, that is capable of recording full 720p HD video. it also has a 2MP front-facing camera, comes with TV-out functionality, and will offer 16GB of storage. The Tab 10.1 is only 8.6mm thick and weighs in under 600 g, making it super thin and light considering it's full 10" screen.

A variety of accessories will also be available at launch, including a keyboard dock, a bluetooth keyboard, and at least a few different cases. No word yet on pricing for the tablet itself, or the accessories that will launch along with it, but we'll be sure to keep you updated.

Those looking for an affordable Android handset, and who prefer Telus or KOODO as their service provider are in luck, as both carriers will soon be offering the INQ Cloud Touch. Telus has come forward officially on their website announcing that the device will soon be available, while leaked information and images point to a KOODO launch as well.

The INQ Cloud Touch features a 3.5" (320x480) touchscreen display, a 5MP camera , and will run on Android 2.2 Froyo at launch. It is powered by an 800Mhz processor and 512MB of RAM, making it just slightly more powerful than the HTC Wildfire S that Bell recently launched, based on specifications at least. Connectivity options for the Cloud Touch include Wi-Fi (b, g, and hotspot), in addition to bluetooth and GPS.

No definite word yet on when the INQ Cloud Touch will be available, but we should see it launch fairly soon. Pricing, while still unconfirmed by either carrier, will apparently be $200 outright, and $50 using the tab from KOODO, according to the leaked information.
