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!

Mobilicity has recently added two new devices to their line-up, and while they aren't as impressive as the Samsung Nexus S, they are definitely great additions. The Nokia E73 is now available from Mobilicity for $149.99 outright, while the Samsung G-Touch comes in at just $139.99.

The Nokia E73 features a 2.4" (320x240) display, full QWERTY keyboard, and 5MP camera with LED flash. It runs on Symbian OS 9.3 (Series 60), and has Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity.

The Samsung G-Touch has a 2.8" (240x320) touchscreen display, a horizontally sliding QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera. The G-Touch has bluetooth support in addition to A-GPS, making it suitable entry-level cell phone for those who don't want to pay a whole lot for hardware.

The Nokia E73 and Samsung G-Touch are both available now from Mobilicity. If one of these devices sound appealing to you and you live in one of Mobilicity's coverage areas, head to one of their stores to pick yours up today!

We recently let you know that Virgin Mobile was preparing to release the LG 230 in pink, a basic and affordable flip phone. The LG 230 "Pink Pebble Kit" is now available, and features a 1.77" display, basic VGA camera, and a 2.5mm headset jack. While this device might not appeal to everybody, the contract-free price tag can make it an enticing option for those who just want a simple device for calls and text messaging. The LG 230 in pink is available now from Virgin Mobile for free using the SuperTab, or just $60 contract-free.

KOODO Mobile has recently launched the LG Cookie Plus, which features a 3" (240 x 400) touchscreen display, 3MP camera capable of recording video, along with bluetooth connectivity and an FM radio. While the Cookie Plus doesn't run on Android, it does have a customizable 3 screen interface, and should appeal to the social crowd as it comes with Twitter and Facebook widgets. The LG Cookie Plus is available now from KOODO Mobile for as little as $25 using their Tab system, or $175 contract/tab free.

WIND Mobile seems to be focusing on versatility and a broader appeal more and more as time goes on, and this latest rumor definitely helps support that. Apparently, WIND Mobile will soon announce their WINDtab hardware payment option, which is very similar to KOODO's tab, and Virgin Mobile's relatively new SuperTab options. Basically, customers will be able to get up to $150 off of the purchase price of hardware, with a tab being kept of the outstanding amount. Each month, 10% of the customer's bill will be applied to the current tab amount owing, and customers have the option of paying off more if they choose. Users will also have the option of upgrading their device at any time, but will have to pay off the WINDtab balance before doing so.

No word yet on exactly when the WINDtab will be announced or launch, but we should see it relatively soon. It's certainly good to see carriers of all kinds focusing on bringing more options to their customers, and this should definitely help WIND Mobile appeal to those who want low costs but many options to choose from. What do you think about WIND Mobile introducing a tab system?
