Virgin Mobile has recently added a few of their post-paid devices to their Prepaid line-up, including the BlackBerry Pearl 3G, Curve 3G, and the Samsung Galaxy 550. The BlackBerry Pearl 3G and Curve 3G are each available for $299.99 with a Prepaid activation, while the Galaxy 550 comes in at just $179.99.

The BlackBerry Curve 3G is available in both colours, red and black. While $299.99 isn't too expensive for this handset, remember, KOODO Mobile is offering it up for $250 contract-free.

Both Virgin Mobile and parent-company Bell have officially released BlackBerry OS 6 for two of the three older devices promised to be receiving the update, the Bold 9700 and Curve 3G 9300. The new OS (v6.0.0.448) is available now for users of either of these devices, and offers up a redesigned user interface, improved search functionality, and a significantly improved WebKit browser. To get the update, head to BlackBerry.com or simply launch BlackBerry Desktop Manager with the handset connected. No word yet on exactly when the Pearl 3G 9100 version of the OS will become available, but we should see it launch sometime in the next few weeks!

If you're looking for a feature-rich and high-specification device, it may be worth the wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II!

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!

A rumour surfaced recently claiming the BlackBerry Pearl 3G would be coming to WIND Mobile soon, and at a price point of $320 outright. It turns out the rumour was true, and this handset is finally available and no longer labeled "Coming Soon". WIND Mobile are currently offering a $20 discount on the device as well, bringing it down to just $300. Even without the discount, this is the lowest unlocked price in the country currently, and is a great device for those who like the Pearl look and feel, but want 3G speeds and the upcoming BlackBerry 6 operating system.

RIM and BlackBerry handsets have been getting a lot of attention lately, especially with the release of the Torch 9800 coming up next month and the Curve and Pearl 3G models that have recently launched, and now it looks like WIND Mobile are looking to join in the fun. Though they've been advertising the Pearl 9100 3G for some time now as "Coming Soon", rumour has it that the device will be arriving in retail outlets in the next few days, with a price point of just $320. If this rumour proves true, this will be great news for WIND customers looking to pick up the device, as it would be the lowest outright pricing in Canada for the device.

Bell has released a document internally stating compatible devices should receive the upgrade to BlackBerry 6 in early 2011. BlackBerry 6 is RIM's newest mobile operating system that features a significantly improved browser, new menus, and a new media interface, among other changes. Devices that will get the update include the Pearl 9100, Bold 9700, and the recently launched Curve 9300. No word yet on when Rogers and Telus plan to release the updates, but it's likely that it will be within the same time frame.
