Sony, which recently took over on the Sony Ericsson side of things, has officially announced another addition to their Xperia line-up, the sola. The sola has one feature that stands out in particular, its ?floating touch? display. It measures in at a pretty standard 3.7? (480 x 854), but lets you browse the web by hovering your finger to control a ?cursor?, and tapping to click. If it works fluidly, this could be especially helpful when clicking small links, and will bring the Xperia sola one step closer to desktop-like browsing.

Other specifications for the sola include its dual-core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory. It features a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, along with the usual Sony features like the Mobile Bravia Engine. Connectivity includes HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC for those early adopters.

The Sony Xperia sola will be available in white, black, and red when it launches globally in a few months. No confirmation as of yet that it will be launching in Canada, but with most Sony handsets hitting our soil early, we?re hoping for a prompt and quick release here. Interested? We?ll keep you updated as more information is made available!

We just let you know that Samsung had officially announced the Galaxy S II LTE, and already Rogers has come forward with confirmation that they will carry it. Their LTE network is currently live in Ottawa, and will expand to other major cities by the end of 2011, which is also when we can expect the Galaxy S II LTE. No word on pricing, but this handset is sure to sell well, especially when considering its improved processor and significantly faster data connectivity.

Additionally, Rogers will be launching 3 other new devices, including the Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S, an LTE tablet, and an LTE HTC device. These will add to the Sierra Wireless Rocket Stick, and of course, the LTE Galaxy S II. Other news from the release today includes a Toronto launch date for LTE, which is set for September 28th. Montreal and Vancouver will go live by the end of the year.

According to a recently leaked internal document, Fido is preparing to launch a new Android handset - the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro. The Xperia Pro features a 3.7" (480x854) touchscreen display and sliding full QWERTY keyboard, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch. It's powered by a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and comes with an 8MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, in addition to a secondary front-facing VGA camera. It also features the same Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine found in the Xperia arc, and offers connectivity including Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, along with an HDMI port for those looking to get their phone's display on the big screen.

No confirmation as of yet on an exact release date, but the document states that it will be available mid-August, so we should be able to expect it soon. Pricing hasn't been made available either, and no information has been leaked so far, but it will likely come in around $100 on a 3 year term, or $400-$500 contract-free. We'll be sure to keep you updated on any further information that comes our way!

A while back, we let you know that Samsung confirmed that the Samsung Infuse would be coming our way, but we haven't heard a whole lot about it since. Now, rumours online are pointing to a near-future launch for this Android handset. Apparently the handset will launch with Rogers, though official confirmation is yet to come.

The Infuse 4G features a giant 4.5" (480x800) Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of storage internally, and has an 8MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture. Additionally, the Infuse comes with a secondary 1.3MP camera, and connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS.

Hopefully this doesn't mean Rogers is ruled out to carry the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II!

The Samsung Galaxy S series of handsets, including the Fascinate, Captivate, and Vibrant have been favourites of Canadians since their launch last year. Even the Galaxy Tab did well, being one of the first tablets available besides Apple's iPad. Unfortunately, all of these devices have been stuck on Froyo since at least December of last year, and while speculation pointed to a future Gingerbread update, confirmation was still awaited.

Finally, Samsung has announced that they will be pushing Android 2.3 Gingerbread out to all Galaxy S devices, including the Tab. The European market will get the updates first, expected "mid-May", so they should see it any day now. Unfortunately no word was given regarding Canada specifically, but they did say that it would be "gradually rolled out to other European markets, North America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, Africa, and the rest of the world according to the regional plan".

Hopefully Canadians can get all of the features and benefits of Gingerbread on the Galaxy S handsets and Tab soon! Despite the lack of clear details, we're expecting it to be available by mid-Summer at the latest, but that's just our best guess!

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!
