We just let you know that Sony was preparing to release the "Sony Tablet", which is now officially known as the Tablet S. The Tablet S has been confirmed to be $500 for the 16GB model, or $600 for the 32GB version. Additionally, Sony confirmed that it will be launching in September, though an exact date wasn't provided. Hopefully this means mid-September as previously speculated.

The Sony Tablet S features a 9.4" (1280x800) touchscreen display, and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. It's PlayStation certified, and is advertised to be usable as a TV remote as well. Running on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the Tablet S will have a lot of competition, but should see its fair share of sales.

We just let you know that Samsung had officially announced the Galaxy S II LTE, and already Rogers has come forward with confirmation that they will carry it. Their LTE network is currently live in Ottawa, and will expand to other major cities by the end of 2011, which is also when we can expect the Galaxy S II LTE. No word on pricing, but this handset is sure to sell well, especially when considering its improved processor and significantly faster data connectivity.

Additionally, Rogers will be launching 3 other new devices, including the Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S, an LTE tablet, and an LTE HTC device. These will add to the Sierra Wireless Rocket Stick, and of course, the LTE Galaxy S II. Other news from the release today includes a Toronto launch date for LTE, which is set for September 28th. Montreal and Vancouver will go live by the end of the year.

Samsung has officially announced LTE versions of the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 8.9. The LTE version of the Galaxy S II will bring numerous upgrades from the existing HSPA+ Galaxy S II from Bell, including a larger screen, and faster processor. The Tab 8.9, which isn't available in Canada as of yet, also features a big improvement over its previously announced 3G version, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

Here's a full rundown of both device's specifications:

The Galaxy S II LTE features a 4.5" (480x800) Super AMOLED Plus display with Gorilla Glass, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It has an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture, along with a secondary 2MP camera. It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will be a fantastic addition to any Canadian carrier.

The Galaxy tab 8.9 LTE features an 8.9" (800x1280) touchscreen display, and is powered by a 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It runs on Honeycomb 3.0, and offers up a 3.15MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD capture, with a front-facing 2MP camera as well.

Both offer LTE connectivity, which has a maximum download speed of 150 Mbps. Rogers has already began a trial launch in Ottawa, and is expected to launch their LTE network in more areas by the end of the year. Bell and Telus also have their LTE network(s) marked as coming soon, though neither have been overly specific about timeframes. Hopefully we'll see both of these devices in Canada, though only time will tell.

Bell and Virgin Mobile have gone ahead with the launch of two new BlackBerry handsets, the Bold 9900 and Torch 9810! These BlackBerry 7 devices mark a new generation of handsets from RIM, and offer significant improvements in specifications over existing BlackBerry models.

The Bold 9900 features a 2.8" (640x480) touchscreen display, along with a full QWERTY keyboard, and maintains the traditional Bold form factor. It is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, and comes with 8GB of storage. It offers up a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, and includes connectivity options including Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS. It runs on BlackBerry OS 7 which fine tunes many of the features introduced in OS 6, including an improved browser experience, voice activated search, and more.

The Torch 9810 also runs on BlackBerry 7, and features a 3.2" (480x640) touchscreen display, and vertically sliding QWERTY keyboard, maintaining the recently introduced Torch form factor. Most of the features are identical to the Bold 9900, including a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, and the 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. Connectivity options are also the same, with Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS.

Bell is offering up the Bold 9900 for $599.95 outright, or $169.95 on a 3 year term. The 9810 is available from them for $149.95 on a 3 year contract, or $599.95 outright. No word on whether all stores have received stock, but they are available for online purchase.

Virgin Mobile has both handsets priced the same (basically), with the Bold 9900 priced at $169.99 on a 3 year term, or $599.99 outright, and the Torch 9810 priced at $149.99 on a 3 year term, or $599.99 contract-free.

According to a recently leaked internal document, Fido is preparing to launch a new Android handset - the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro. The Xperia Pro features a 3.7" (480x854) touchscreen display and sliding full QWERTY keyboard, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch. It's powered by a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and comes with an 8MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, in addition to a secondary front-facing VGA camera. It also features the same Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine found in the Xperia arc, and offers connectivity including Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, along with an HDMI port for those looking to get their phone's display on the big screen.

No confirmation as of yet on an exact release date, but the document states that it will be available mid-August, so we should be able to expect it soon. Pricing hasn't been made available either, and no information has been leaked so far, but it will likely come in around $100 on a 3 year term, or $400-$500 contract-free. We'll be sure to keep you updated on any further information that comes our way!
