Virgin Mobile has recently introduced a new Canada & U.S. Flexi-Data plan, offering those who cross the border frequently a worry-free option. The plan starts at 500 MB for $45/month, and ranges up in multiple tiers until it reaches the 5 GB limit for $190/month. Overages beyond 5 GB are charged at 25 cents/MB.

In addition to introducing the Canada & U.S. plan, they have made a small change to their Canada-only $5 Flexi-Data plan. The $250 MB tier has been reduced from $20/month to $15/month. Head to your nearest Virgin Mobile store to sign up if one of these sound like they’re for you!

Acer recently announced that their newest Android-powered tablet will soon be available in Canada, stating that major electronics retailers would have it available for “pre-sale”. Future Shop had the device listed online and available for pre-order, with an estimated release date of April 6th, 2012. Since then, Future Shop has removed the tablet from the website entirely, and it’s nowhere to be found on other electronics retailer’s websites.

The Iconia A510 comes in two colours – silver and black. It comes with 32GB of internal storage, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The upcoming tablet is powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 1 GB of RAM. It features a 10.1” (1280 x 800) touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera capable of 720p video capture, along with a secondary 1 MP front-facing camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

If you’re interested in picking up an Acer Iconia A510 tablet, stay tuned. We’ll keep you updated as more availability information is made available!

This is a bit of an odd scenario, one we don’t see too often. Sony recently announced their first device following their takeover of Sony Ericsson, the Xperia S, and clearly stated that it would be available globally in March. As such, it has been assumed that the device will land in Canada, though which carrier is unknown. Recently, Sony announced that the device has shipped globally, but that they’re leaving it up to carriers to announce specific availability.

Next, Sony posted an image on their Facebook page that made clear mention the device would be heading to Rogers. What most saw as a clear-cut indication turned out to be some kind of mistake, however. Sony removed the image from their Facebook page, and Rogers stated that they will not be selling the device directly, though it will work on their network. This has led to some back-and-forth online, with many people believing the handset will be sold unlocked in Sony Stores rather than through carriers. This would certainly be an interesting step for Sony to take, and if they’re going that route, it will be interesting to see the results.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3” (720 x 1280) display, and a 12 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It has a secondary front-facing 1.3 MP camera capable of 720p video recording, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with ICS planned for Q2 sometime. Similarly to most recent Xperia handsets, it features the Mobile BRAVIA Engine and connectivity including HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. It also comes with NFC capabilities, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.

Telus has recently launched a new trade-in program to encourage customers to recycle their unused devices, offering up to $200 in value. The program is relatively simple – you can trade in up to 3 devices, for a maximum combined value of $200. You can use that ‘credit’ towards the purchase of a new device or accessory, though you must renew or activate a new account when doing so. The program is applicable to cell phones, mobile internet sticks and portable hotspots, but doesn’t currently extend to tablets, unfortunately.

In the press release, Telus mentioned they commissioned a survey to find out what Canadians do with their old devices. The results came in with 61% of Canadians saying they have between one and five old or unused cell phones laying around at home. This is a smart offering from Telus and eRecyclyingCorps in their collaborative effort, hopefully the appropriate value is given to those who want to take advantage!
