At Google I/O last week, a variety of announcements came our way regarding Android. Ice Cream Sandwich, Movie Rentals, and more were announced. One of the other items unveiled at the event was Honeycomb OS 3.1, the next update in the tablet-specific OS. Included in the update are a variety of new featurs, including resizable widgets, USB accessory support, and more.

Unfortunately, like with most events of this type in the U.S., Canada wasn't really discussed a whole lot. U.S. Motorola XOOM owners began seeing the update shortly after the announcement, while there has been no sign of it north of the border. Finally, Motorola Canada came forward on Facebook and declared that the update is coming soon. No specific dates were provided, but they did say:

"Some of the feature upgrades include basic external SD card support for general SD file and media access, expanded support for USB-connected accessories, additional Bluetooth support and Picture Transfer Protocol to enable easier transfer of photo files to your PC."

Certainly great news for Canadian XOOM owners!

Wind Mobile recently announced that they are working on expanding their network coverage in the coming year, but no further details were made available. Now, however, a newspaper article containing an interview with WIND Mobile CEO Ken Campbell, gives information on what may be in their future.

According to the article, WIND Mobile will be launching in Atlantic Canada, starting in 2012. Nova Scotia is first on the list it seems, and the company is in the planning stages including tower sites, store locations, and more. They also have "aggressive expansion plans for the remainder of 2011', hopefully in other major cities across the country.

The Dell Streak 7's "estimated ship date" has been pushed back several times since it was initially added to Dell's Canadian site in late April, but it looks like it is finally available! The Streak 7 runs Android 2.2 Froyo, and has a 7" (800x480) capacitive touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass. It is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and comes with 16GB of internal storage memory, and features a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video recording. The Streak 7 also has a secondary front-facing 1.3MP camera, and supports Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity.

The Streak 7 is available now from Dell online for $399.99. While the relatively low price tag might seem enticing to some, the older OS version might hurt this tablet. With no clear plans for Honeycomb in the future, the Streak 7 packs in some great specs but risks being left behind.

Telus just launched the Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate 4G, and Samsung is looking to give Canadians a deal. They are offering up a $50 rebate cheque to anybody who purchases a Facinate 4G from Telus. To get the cheque, users will have to visit Samsung Canada's website and fill out a rebate form. The rebate will take 6-8 weeks to arrive, and the form must be completed before June 12th.

The Galaxy S Fascinate 4G is available from Telus for $99.99 on a 3 year term, or $529.99 contract-free. $50 off those prices is a pretty decent deal, so if you've been considering the Fascinate 4G, this just might be the incentive you needed.

We just let you know that Mobilicity was getting set to launch the HTC Panache, which is known otherwise as the HTC Glacier/myTouch 4G. An Android Gingerbread ROM was recently leaked that was filled with Videotron-related items, even having the popular Quebec carrier in the file name, indicating a near-future launch from them as well. No word yet on exactly when the Glacier will be released, or at what price, but we'll be sure to keep you updated. It's definitely great to see smaller carriers launching high-end Android devices. Keep them coming, Videotron! The HTC Glacier features Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.8" (480x800) display, and is pwoered by a 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. It comes with a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p recording capabilities, and supports bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity.

A few months ago, information was leaked pointing a new Android-powered device launching on Mobilicity. The HTC Panache, which was formerly known as the "Emerald" internally, is now officially set to "Coming Soon". It is essentially the my Touch 4G/HTC Glacier currently found in the U.S., and comes with a range of impressive features including Gingerbread 2.3. The Panache has a 3.8" (480x800) touchscreen display, 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and comes with 4GB of internal storage. This new addition to Mobilicitys line-up is powered by a 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, and comes with standard connectivity options including Wi-Fi (with hotspot), GPS, and bluetooth.

No word yet on an exact launch date, but we're expecting it sometime next week. As for pricing, rumours online are still pointing to the $500 mark, which is a pretty standard price for a handset like this one. If you're interested in picking up this handset, Mobilicity retail stores are currently taking pre-orders, so visit your nearest one!

KOODO Mobile has officially launched the white version of the BlackBerry Curve 3G. White BlackBerry handsets have typically done very well, so launching this colour variation is a great move by the carrier. All of the features and specifications are the same as the black version, and pricing is also consistent. You can pick up the white Curve 3G for the low price of $250 outright, or $100 using the tab.
