We've seen multiple carriers sign distribution deals with various outlets, and now Mobilicity has joined in. Mobilicity has signed with their first major distribution partner, 7-Eleven, and products will be available at 150 stores throughout Toronto, Vancouver, and Edmonton before the end of the year. Mobilicity has maintained a focus on simplicity and convenience, and state that the availability of their products at 7-Eleven locations "will only add to that convenient customer experience". With their launch in 3 more cities, and this new distribution deal, Mobilicity should see some growth in the near-future.

Many X10 users were hoping to get pinch-to-zoom along with the Android 2.1 OS update, though the feature wasn't included unfortunately. In the past, Sony Ericsson has stated that the feature will never come to the X10, however they've recently reconsidered the idea and have decided to provide it in an OTA update sometime in Q1 next year. Apparently the feature won't be available to all markets, so fingers crossed that we get it here in Canada. Additionally, they have stated that the feature will only be available for select uses, such as web browsing and Google Maps. We'll be sure to let you know if more information becomes available.

We recently let you know you could expect the BlackBerry Torch 9800 to arrive in white at Rogers, and today they've gone ahead and launched it!

We should see the Bold 9780 launch in white soon too, so stay tuned for more news!

Mobilicity recently announced in two press released that they would be adding the Motorola Spice and LG Wink sometime in the near-future. What's just as interesting, is that in their Ottawa network launch press release, they stated:

"This week, it announced three new handsets onto its growing lineup: the Sony Ericsson Xperia™ X10 Android™ smartphone, the Motorola Spice™, Canada’s only sub-$200 name-brand Android 2.1 device, and the $99.99 LG Wink™ slider phone."

This is the first we're hearing about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 launching on Mobilicity, but it's certainly welcomed news.

As a quick summary of the upcoming devices, the Motorola Spice features Android 2.1, a sliding QWERTY keyboard, and is coming in at just $199.99 contract-free. The LG Wink is a compact slider, and has a 1.3MP camera, bluetooth connectivity, and an MP3 player, and will be priced at $99.99 outright. The Ericsson X10 will likely launch running Android 2.1 (which it was very recently updated to by Rogers), and features a 4" touchscreen, 8MP camera with 720p HD video capture, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS, and more. No word yet on pricing for the X10, but we'll be sure to keep you updated when more information comes available.

New entrant Mobilicity has just launched their network in two more major cities today, Edmonton and Vancouver, and has officially confirmed the Ottawa launch will take place tomorrow.

$35/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, and Province Wide Long Distance.

$45/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, Province Wide Long Distance, Canadian Long Distance, U.S. Long Distance, and Global Text Messaging.
