Many carriers have been exploring distribution options as of lately, looking to expand the retail outlets in which they can sell their products and services, and the latest to join in the effort is WIND Mobile. Now offering 4 of their devices in London Drugs locations in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver, WIND Mobile will surely reach a wider audience, adding to BlockBuster and Valu Mobile as distribution partners. The devices available through London Drugs include the Huawei 1250, Huawei 8100, Nokia 5230 (black), and the Samsung Gravity 2(blue). Apparently 30 London Drugs locations are on board and offering these devices, spanning through the 3 cities listed above.

We recently let you know that Videotron would be launching their 3G+ network today, and we've got all of the information rounded up in one place to keep you updated!

During the press conference, Videotron announced their 4 types of price plans available to customers on the new network, in addition to four handsets that are available to Quebec residents should they choose to go with Videotron for their mobile service. Shortly afterwards, the website was updated to include the remaining devices. The price plans now available are:

Zone Plans - Videotron offers the largest urban zones in Quebec, and is offering up a couple tiers of plans for those located in either Montreal or Quebec city. The options include an unlimited in-zone calling option for just over $30/month, or an unlimited cross-Canada calling package for about $50/monthly. Both include SMS, MMS, and e-mail, in addition to 50MB of data usage.

Unlimited Evenings & Weekends - For $24.95, users can get 100 anytime minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends, and unlimited SMS, MMS, and e-mail

Anytime Plans - 50 anytime minutes starting at approximately $15/month

Sharing Plans - Videotron is also offering up sharing plans, starting at just $36.95 for two lines. This option allows the users to share a minimum of 200 anytime minutes, and unlimited evenings and weekends.

Videotron will be eventually be launching twelve 3G+ compatible devices, and every handset supports Videotron's mobile content including 28 on-demand channels, and remote PVR programming. Among the devices now available are:

HTC/Google Nexus One - Running on Android 2.2 Froyo, this is the first handset available in Canada running on the latest version of the Android OS. This device features a 3.7" (480x800) AMOLED display, 5MP camera with LED flash, a 1GHz processor, and 512MB of RAM/ROM. This device has never been offered through a carrier in Canada before, so Videotron should see a large number of customers jump on-board for this handset.

Garmin Nuvifone A50 - The second of the Android handsets now available from Videotron, the Nuvifone A50 features a 3.5" (320x480) touch screen, a 3MP camera, and of course GPS navigation. Along with Wi-Fi support, this handset is perfect for those looking for highly functional GPS capabilities.

Motorola XT720 - The Motorola XT720 is also an Android powered device, featuring a 3.7" (480x854) touch screen, 8MP camera with flash, 720p HD video capture, and an HDMI out port. This handset is powered by a 720MHz processor, and has 512MB ROM/256MB RAM.

Huawei U3200 - This device features a 2.2" (240x320) display, 3.2MP camera, and is a slider handset with a standard numeric keypad.

Other devices - BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Pearl 9100, Samsung Gravity 2, HuaweiU7519, Nokia 5230, and the Huawei E1381 Mobile Internet key.

Other details covered in the press conference include the removal of 2 and 3 year contracts, their dynamic bandwidth allocation, and a few plans for the future regarding the network technology. Among these plans include dual-channel HSPA technology that will bring their maximum download speed from 21Mbps, up to 42Mbps. They are also offering an unconditional 30 day money-back guarantee on all handset purchases/service agreements.

All around, it looks like Videotron has done a decent job of offering choices beyond those of other carriers. Being the first carrier to officially offer a device running Android 2.2, and offering a large selection of handsets and services, it looks like they've ensured some healthy competition in Quebec!

KOODO has recently launched their HSPA network, and so far we've seen two compatible devices launch for it - the Nokia 7230 and INQ Chat 3G. It looks like they'll be following that up with another, this time the Samsung Elevate, which features a 2.6" (240x320) display, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 1.3MP camera, and support for bluetooth connectivity. Rumours point to "Tab" pricing of just $24.99, while contract-free pricing is speculated at $150. No word yet on exactly when this device will launch, but we should see it available in the near-future.

Last week we let you know that Sasktel would be launching their 3G+ network today, and it looks like it has been a success thus far. Among the devices available are Nokia 7230, Nokia 6350, BlackBerry Bold 9700, and BlackBerry Pearl 9100. While they're still in talks to get the new iPhone 4, they will be launch the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant by the end of August. Contract pricing is comparable to that of other carriers, though outright pricing is a little bit high. You can pick up a BlackBerry Bold 9700 for $100 on a 3 year term, or the Pearl 9100 for as little as $50 on a contract. SIM cards are offered at $10/each, and they've even launched a Novatel mobile internet stick for $0 on a 3 year contract.

Sasktel has also reduced the contract-pricing of some of their CDMA smartphones, offering up the BlackBerry Storm at $0 on a 3 year term, or a Pearl for $0 on a 1 year term. There are other discounts as well, but remember that their newly introduced 3G+ network is much faster, and well worth the slightly increased device cost.

Sasktel has announced that they will be launching their 3G+ network, a long anticipated piece of news for Saskatchewan residents. Along with the network, they've stated that they will be carrying the BlackBerry Bold 9700, Pearl 9100, Nokia 7230, Samsung Gravity 3, Samsung Gravity Touch, Nokia 6350, and a Novatel MC998D mobile data stick. Possibly the most exciting news, however, is that a Sasktel dealer's website has been updated to include an image of the Samsung Gravity S Vibrant, one of the most feature-rich Android devices available in Canada.

The Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant features a 4" (480x800) super AMOLED touch screen, 5MP camera with 720p HD recording, and 16GB of internal memory. The device runs on Android 2.1 Eclair featuring TouchWiz 3.0, and is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and 512MB of RAM.

Sasktel is set to launch their 3G+ network on Monday, August 16th, and dealers should be prepared to help customers get set-up on that date.
