Both Telus and KOODO Mobile have officially released the INQ Cloud Touch, an affordable Android 2.2 handset. This new addition to their line-up features a 3.5" (320x480) touchscreen display, 5MP camera, and is powered by a 600MHz processor. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi with hotspot functionality, and bluetooth. The Cloud Touch places a focus on Facebook, and it looks as though INQ have included some of their own Facebook widgets for use on the homescreens.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in, it's available now from Telus for $29.99 on a 3 year term, or $229.99 contract-free. KOODO Mobile has it listed for $50 using the tab, or $200 outright.

Those looking for an affordable Android handset, and who prefer Telus or KOODO as their service provider are in luck, as both carriers will soon be offering the INQ Cloud Touch. Telus has come forward officially on their website announcing that the device will soon be available, while leaked information and images point to a KOODO launch as well.

The INQ Cloud Touch features a 3.5" (320x480) touchscreen display, a 5MP camera , and will run on Android 2.2 Froyo at launch. It is powered by an 800Mhz processor and 512MB of RAM, making it just slightly more powerful than the HTC Wildfire S that Bell recently launched, based on specifications at least. Connectivity options for the Cloud Touch include Wi-Fi (b, g, and hotspot), in addition to bluetooth and GPS.

No definite word yet on when the INQ Cloud Touch will be available, but we should see it launch fairly soon. Pricing, while still unconfirmed by either carrier, will apparently be $200 outright, and $50 using the tab from KOODO, according to the leaked information.

Google held their I/O event today, announcing a number of things pertaining to their mobile OS and platform - Android. Possibly the biggest announcement was the official confirmation of their upcoming OS version, Ice Cream Sandwich. This new version aims to bridge the gap between tablets and smartphones, bringing many of the higher-end features of Honeycomb to a smaller screen size. This promises richer widgets and graphics, better multitasking, and much more. Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to launch in Q4.

Another big announcement was movie rentals via Market. No word on when Canadians will see the feature released, but starting in the next few weeks, Google stated they will be rolling out movie rentals in the Android Market. These rentals will start as low as $1.99, but premium titles will likely be more.

Though Canadians haven't received any word on when it will be available to us, Google also announced Music Beta. Music Beta is a service that allows you to upload your personal music collection to the cloud for streaming on your computer and various Android devices. It was made available today to certain U.S. users by invitation, so hopefully we'll see it soon in Canada.

A few other announcements were made as well, including a promise of higher dedication to timely OS updates. They also discussed projects like the Android Open Accessory Toolkit and Android@Home so hardware creators can develop a broader range of products, and even offer connectivity between home appliances and your device!
