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!
