The Android-powered Motorola XOOM has been very anticipated in Canada, serving as the best competition to the iPad 2. Starting today, the Motorola XOOM is available for online orders from Future Shop and Best Buy. Come Friday morning, we'll also be able to purchase them in-store at either store. No word yet on when exactly Telus will launch the tablet, but they confirmed a couple weeks back that they would be offering it this Spring.

The Motorola XOOM has a 10.1" (800x1280) touchscreen display, and runs on Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Featuring a 5MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video capture and 2MP front-facing camera, the Motorola XOOM is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS.

The Wi-Fi only Motorola XOOM is available for online purchase now for $599.99 from Future Shop and Best Buy. If you're interested in a 3G enabled version, Telus will be following up on their Wi-Fi only XOOM launch with a 3G version later this year, but no specific dates are available yet.

Apple has recently launched their highly-anticipated iPad 2 in Canada, and it has been a huge success thus far. Both Wi-Fi only, and Wi-Fi + 3G models are available, in a variety of storage sizes. For a Wi-Fi only version, you're looking at $519 for a 16GB model, $619 for the 32GB version, and $719 for the 64GB model. Those interested in picking one up with 3G connectivity, price points currently sit at $649 for the 16GB model, $749 for 32GB, and $849 for the huge 64GB version.

The iPad 2 brings with it a number of improvements over it's predecessor, including a 1GHz dual-core A5 processor. Users will also benefit from the LED-backlit display, 720p HD video recording capabilities of the rear-facing camera, and of course the newly added front-facing camera for facetime, and more. At only 8.8mm thick, the iPad 2 isn't just high-powered, it also looks great.

Apple's iPad 2 is available now to Canadians, and you can pick one up from an Apple retail store, FutureShop/Best Buy, or Rogers, Bell, or Telus. So who picked one up?

Just last week, the word broke that Motorola's XOOM tablet would be making it's way to Canada, sometime in April. Originally, FutureShop had it listed with an estimated release date of April 8th, but that has now been pushed back to the 15th. The tablet, which will be offered through Telus as well, brings a slew of features that help it compete with the recently released iPad 2. As far we can tell, contract-free pricing is still looking like $599.99, but it's always possible for changes to be made prior to the official launch. We'll be sure to keep you updated on any further advancements regarding the Motorola XOOM's release date and pricing, so stay tuned!

We let you know several months back that the Xperia X10 from Sony Ericsson had reached the end of the line in regards to OS updates. Stuck at 2.1 Eclair (without multitouch), many Canadians were outraged. Luckily, Sony Ericsson listened to their customers, and have decided to bring Gingerbread 2.3 to the device. Expected sometime in late Q2 or early Q3, the update will lighten Sony Ericsson's presence in the Android OS, and bring with it the many performance improvements that Gingerbread has to offer.

According to Sony Ericsson, the ability to bring Gingerbread to the X10 is newly realized, and comes with their work on the upcoming Arc and Play devices. Great news for X10 owners, now let's just hope that Rogers cooperates and can get the update to Canadians in a timely manner!

We recently let you know that Virgin Mobile was rumoured to be launching the HTC Incredible S, and that Sasktel had confirmed that the high-end Android handset would coming to their network. Now, we have confirmation that Bell and Virgin will be launching the device, with an expected release date of April 4th. The information comes way of leaked screenshots, and though 3-year pricing hasn't been made available yet, we are expecting contract-free pricing to come in around $499.95.

The HTC Incredible S features a 4" (480x800) S-LCD touchscreen display, an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, along with a 1.3MP front-facing camera. Powered by a 1GHz Scorpion processor and 768MB of RAM, the Incredible S has 1.1GB of internal memory, and is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and users will be able to get HSPA download speeds up to 14.4Mbps using their cellular data plan. Overall, the HTC Incredible S is shaping up well, and should make a great addition to Sasktel, Virgin, and Bell's line-ups.

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!

The tablet market is certainly heating up in Canada, with the iPad 2 launching in the very near-future, a couple of new Samsung tabs hiding around the corner, and RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook launch expected next month. Motorola is looking to be a part of the competition in Canada, and seem to have teamed up with multiple vendors to offer the Motorola Xoom. The Wi-Fi only version of the tablet is expected to launch around April 8th, with FutureShop accepting pre-orders for the popular Honeycomb device. Telus also confirmed that they would be offering the Motorola Xoom, though it will be the Wi-Fi only version as well. They do, however, remind users that they can use any hotspot enabled Android handset to tether their Wi-Fi only tablets, so those with relatively new Android devices already should be covered.

According to Telus' press release, the Motorola Xoom will be available for as little as $599.99. We'll be sure to let you know if any other carriers announce that the Xoom is coming to their line-up, and any confirmation of pricing or availability that comes our way.
