With the competition heating up in Quebec with a range of carriers now available, Telus is stepping up their game to offer similar plans to other carriers, and have launched a new "Unlimited Quebec" plan. The new Unlimited Quebec plan offers up unlimited local and long distance calls within Quebec, Nationwide family calling, voicemail, call waiting, and conference calling. For an additional $5/month, Quebec subscribers can have unlimited text, picture, and video messaging added to the plan, leaving the only thing missing as data services. Nice to see carriers competing for customers in Quebec these days, now if only these types of offers could be extended to other provinces!

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!

Apple held an iPhone 4 press conference on Friday, to discuss the new devices antenna issues and announce information on the launch of the handset in the remainder of locations that didn't get it back in June. To compensate customers, Apple are giving away a free case or bumper to help with the issue to anybody who has purchased an iPhone 4, an offer which stands until September 30th. The exciting news for Canadians is the announcement of the launch on Friday, July 30th. Bell has also confirmed this launch date, though no pricing information has been released as of yet, though we'll be sure to let you know once it has.

Apple held their annual WWDC conference today, announcing the launch of the Apple iPhone 4. The new iPhone boasts a considerable upgrade to the existing line-up, featuring a 3.5" (640x960) display, 5MP camera with 720p high definition video recording capabilities at 30 fps, and the upcoming iOS 4. The device will be available in black or white, in both 16GB and 32GB variations, and reshapes the design of iPhones as we know it today coming in at only 9.3mm thick. Powering the device is the Apple A4 processor, which clocks in at 1GHz, and users can expect added features such as video calling over Wi-Fi(b, g, n), HSPA connectivity, and GPS. The freshly announced iPhone 4 will also include a built in gyro-sensor, creating 6-axis control for even more gaming possibilities.

The iPhone 4 is slated for launch on June 24th in 5 countries, though Canada is not included among them unfortunately. Though no exact date is available, it is confirmed that Canadians can expect to get their hands on one sometime in the month of July. Pricing is expected to be $199 for the 16GB model, and $299 for the 32GB model on 3 year terms, though Rogers will be offering it at these prices on contracts of only 2 years, so we can remain hopeful.
