Samsung has recently stated via Twitter that the Canadian Galaxy S III launch has been delayed. The release of the highly anticipated Android device has been pushed back by 7 days, and is now expected to be released on June 27th. The delay will apply to all carriers launching the handset, which is pretty well all of them.

The delay, according to Samsung, is due to the extreme worldwide demand for the handset. While it may be frustrating to wait the extra week, most people can agree that such a widespread simultaneous release within Canada is still a great thing.

Hopefully there aren't any additional delays, but we'll be sure to keep you updated on any further information on the Samsung Galaxy S III as it becomes available!

Bell, Telus, Virgin Mobile, and Fido have all recently launched the HTC One S, and Sasktel isn?t going to leave Saskatchewan residents behind. They have released their own unique version of the One S, the Roughriders edition. It comes with a Riders widget and the official app pre-installed, along with a customized Saskatchewan Roughriders body.

All of the other features are identical to the standard version released by other carriers, including its 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display. It runs on Android 4.0, and features Beats Audio, Sense 4.0, and an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. The One S is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB of internal storage.

If you?re in Saskatchewan and want this unique device, you now pick one up from Sasktel for $99.99 on a 3 year term, or $549.99 monthly or prepaid.

So far this year, HTC has been pretty focused on their One line-up of Android handsets, at least for Canada. The line-up includes the One X, which Rogers currently offers, as well as the One S and One V. The One V is currently available from Bell, and the One S is expected to hit multiple carriers.

The HTC One S features a 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It comes with a secondary VGA front-facing camera, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The One S is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB internal storage.

The One V features a 3.7? (480 x 800) touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. It?s powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, and comes with 4 GB of internal memory. What is particularly appealing about this Android 4.0 ICS handset is its unibody construction, similar to the HTC Legend that was known as a pretty tough device.

Unfortunately, pricing is not confirmed as of yet. What we can let you know, thanks to internal documents leaked online, is that both are planned for launch on May 17th. Additional support for that timeframe is the fact that dummy units have been received by numerous stores. Given the specifications, we can expect the One V to come in at a relatively affordable price, while the One S will probably be comparable to other higher end Android handsets. Stay tuned, we?ll let you know as soon as pricing can be confirmed!

Bell recently launched the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE, and now Sasktel is advertising it on their site. Initially they had it labelled as ?Coming soon?, however that label has now disappeared, indicating that it?s now available from the Saskatchewan carrier. Users will be able to benefit from the improved resolution, processor and overall enhancements over the standard Galaxy S II, however LTE connectivity won?t be coming until this fall.

The S II HD LTE features a 4.65? (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass. It?s powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB of storage. Currently, the S II HD LTE runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though an Ice Cream Sandwich update is expected in the coming weeks. Other notable features include its 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, along with a secondary 2 MP camera.

If you?re in the market for a new Android handset and can?t wait for the Galaxy S III, be sure to check out the Galaxy S II HD LTE from Sasktel. It is available now for $129.99 on a 3 year term, or $569.99 monthly.

Motorola has sent out a press release officially announcing that the MOTOLUXE is heading to Canada, with a scheduled Q2 release. This new Android handset from Motorola features a new user-interface that ?learns? about your use and tailors certain parts of your home screen to your behaviour. For instance, the contacts you interact with most often will have larger icons than the rest on your home screen, and the ?Activity Graph? will display your most used applications. The device also has a multi-coloured LED indicator, something BlackBerry handsets (with the use of 3rd party apps for advanced customization) have had for some time.

Other features include its 4? (480 x 854)) touch screen display, and 8 MP camera with flash and HD video capture. It has an 800 MHz processor, 1 GB of internal storage, and 512 MB of RAM. The current version of the handset available outside of Canada runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so we?ll probably see this at launch as well.

Pricing and carrier availability are currently unconfirmed, though rumours around the internet point to Bell and Virgin Mobile picking this device up. With the modest specifications and unique, software-oriented approach, we should see the Motorola MOTOLUXE on the lower end of the pricing spectrum.

A couple short weeks ago, we let you know that Sony had announced that they were shipping the Xperia S globally, but nothing specific was confirmed for Canada. Now, Sony has come forward with a press release stating that the Android device will be available on April 17th in limited quantities, exclusively from the Sony Store. As for pricing and carrier availability, they make mention that it is compatible with the Rogers network, and later stated that it would be available for $99.99 on a 3 year term through Rogers. Whether Sony will later allow Rogers to sell the handset or not hasn?t been revealed as of yet, and no mention of other carriers seeing the device in the future was made either.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (1280 x 720) Reality Display with the Mobile BRAVIA Engine, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. It comes with a 12 MP rear-facing camera with Sony Exmor R for mobile technology, which is capable or recording 1080p video. It also has a front-facing camera capable of 720p video capture, and offers up NFC connectivity, along with the regular connectivity support such as HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. It will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, however it?s apparently set for an ICS upgrade in the coming months.

We recently let you know that Telus was getting set to release the white Samsung Galaxy Note, and are happy to let you know that it?s now available! If you?re not a Telus customer or aren?t willing to make the switch, we also have good news for you, as Bell and Rogers are getting ready to launch it as well. Bell?s internal documentation confirms an April 10th release, while Rogers tweeted that it will be available from them as early as next week.

As for pricing, all 3 carriers are offering it for the same price as the standard black version. For Telus and Bell, that puts the cost at the $200 mark on a 3 year term, or $780 outright. Rogers also has it at $200 with a 3 year contract, with no term pricing at $650. As expected, features and specifications are also the same as the black version, boasting a 5.3? (800 x 1280) display, an 8MP camera, and running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with an upgrade to ICS ?coming soon?.

Telus has recently launched a new trade-in program to encourage customers to recycle their unused devices, offering up to $200 in value. The program is relatively simple ? you can trade in up to 3 devices, for a maximum combined value of $200. You can use that ?credit? towards the purchase of a new device or accessory, though you must renew or activate a new account when doing so. The program is applicable to cell phones, mobile internet sticks and portable hotspots, but doesn?t currently extend to tablets, unfortunately.

In the press release, Telus mentioned they commissioned a survey to find out what Canadians do with their old devices. The results came in with 61% of Canadians saying they have between one and five old or unused cell phones laying around at home. This is a smart offering from Telus and eRecyclyingCorps in their collaborative effort, hopefully the appropriate value is given to those who want to take advantage!
