Possibly one of the most anticipated Android handsets since the OS was first introduced by Google, the Samsung Galaxy S III has been officially announced. It features a 4.8? (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED touchscreen display, and is powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor. There will be two variations, an HSPA+ model and an LTE version. It comes with an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording, along with a 1.9 MP front-facing camera capable of 720p video capture. Other noteworthy specifications include its 1 GB of RAM, and its Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC connectivity options.

Some of the features that make the S III unique in the Android market include SmartStay and S Voice. SmartStay uses the front-facing camera to detect when you are looking at the screen, preventing the display from timing out. S Voice allows users to give voice commands, and is somewhat similar to Siri on the iPhone. Those who purchase a Galaxy S III will also get a whopping 50 GB of extra Dropbox storage, and will have a wide array of accessories to purchase.

As for design, the Galaxy S III?s huge 4.8? screen rests inside an 8.6 mm thin body. The handset is going to be made in black and white versions, though it hasn?t been confirmed that we?ll see both in Canada. What has been communicated by Samsung, however, is that we will see the device sometime this summer! Pricing and carrier availability are unknown currently, but it?s likely that Rogers, Bell, and Telus will each offer the device, in one variation or another.

If you?re interested in this Ice Cream Sandwich device, you?re surely not alone. Check back soon as we?ll keep you updated on any further information pertaining to its launch!

Motorola has officially launched a fairly unique product to Canadians, the Motorola MOTOACTIV. The device looks much like a watch, but features a 1.6? touch screen made of Gorilla Glass, and advertised to be sweat-proof, rain-resistant, and scratch-resistant. So what?s the big deal?

The MOTOACTIV is powered by Android and is a ?cutting-edge GPS fitness tracker, heart rate monitor-enabled, and smart MP3 player? in one. Using GPS and AccuSense technology, it can track your running, walking, cycling, and other workout data including time, distance, speed, calories burned, and heart rate (if paired with a heart rate monitor). It features tight integration with your smart phone as well, allowing you to pair it to receive calls and text messages on the go, in addition to mobile and online access to their ?Training Portal?. As far as MP3 functionality, the MOTOACTIV comes with 8GB of built in memory, and it also offers FM radio capabilities. If you?re looking to extend the device?s functionality even further, you can also pair it with pedometers and bike sensors for more details on your workout or exercise.

The MOTOACTIV is available now in limited quantities Running Room stores, and online at thesource.ca. Motorola let us know that the device would retail for $249.99, though The Source has it listed (and currently out of stock) for $259.99.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an impressive Android tablet, and having recently launched in the United States, Canadians were left wondering when we may see it available. Luckily, Samsung Canada quickly updated their site to include the Tab 10.1, marking it as "Coming Soon!"

Furthermore, information was recently leaked online stating that the Wi-Fi only version will be available sometime in July, while the 3G version will follow close behind, expected to launch sometime in August. Other great news regarding the 3G version - Rogers, Bell, and Telus will all be carrying the Honeycomb tablet!

To recap on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1's features and specs, it has a 10.1" (800x1280) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.

At Google I/O last week, a variety of announcements came our way regarding Android. Ice Cream Sandwich, Movie Rentals, and more were announced. One of the other items unveiled at the event was Honeycomb OS 3.1, the next update in the tablet-specific OS. Included in the update are a variety of new featurs, including resizable widgets, USB accessory support, and more.

Unfortunately, like with most events of this type in the U.S., Canada wasn't really discussed a whole lot. U.S. Motorola XOOM owners began seeing the update shortly after the announcement, while there has been no sign of it north of the border. Finally, Motorola Canada came forward on Facebook and declared that the update is coming soon. No specific dates were provided, but they did say:

"Some of the feature upgrades include basic external SD card support for general SD file and media access, expanded support for USB-connected accessories, additional Bluetooth support and Picture Transfer Protocol to enable easier transfer of photo files to your PC."

Certainly great news for Canadian XOOM owners!

Launching just a few days ago, the Motorola Atrix features a 4" (540x960) touchscreen display, dual-core 1GHz processor, and 1GB of RAM. Coming with a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video capture, the Atrix also has a front-facing camera.

The Motorola Atrix is available now from Bell for $169.95 on a 3 year term. Though a contract-free price point is listed at $599.95, Bell isn't selling the handset without an upgrade or activation. So if you're looking to grab an Atrix, you'll have to have an active account with Bell.

While Rogers is still offering this device at $99 on a 3 year term, it looks as though Futureshop and Best Buy have put the X10 on sale, temporarily slashing their prices by $20 -$25. Futureshop's sale ends August 19th, and they're willing to throw in a $75 gift card usable towards accessories for your new device. Best Buy is offering their sale until August 26th, and they are tossing in a $100 gift card. Remember, the X10's smaller version, the X10 Mini is also available from Rogers for just $29.99 on a 3 year term, or $374.99 contract-free, so if you're looking for a more affordable option, that may be a device to consider.

Despite the antenna and reception issues experienced by users outside of Canada who got their hands on the iPhone 4 last month, many Canadians are still excited to get one of these devices. We know the second wave of the launch was announced as July 30th, and within the last week or so both Telus and Bell have began advertising that same release date, offering even more confirmation. Additionally, Best Buy Canada has gotten an early start, selling iPhone 4 accessories already.

The only real question remains, will there be an early upgrade program for the iPhone 4 in Canada? Rogers customer service representatives seem to think so, but confirmation is yet to be received. We'll be sure to let you know once more information is released.
