We recently let you know that Nokia and Rogers are getting set to launch the Lumia 900, but recent information being discussed online points to more from Nokia as it relates to Windows. Apparently, Nokia is looking to build and send out a batch of Windows 8 tablets running in Microsoft?s ?Metro? UI by the end of the year. No word on a Canadian release specifically, but with the tablet market heating up and another strong competitor coming on board with Windows 8, we should see it eventually.

There aren?t many other details available, though it?s expected to be powered by a Quallcomm dual-core chipset, and offers simple but not seamless support for existing Windows applications. Windows 8 is expected to launch this fall, and manufacturers such as Dell and HP are expected to have a strong presence early on. Could Nokia compete with these manufacturers in such a crowded tablet market?

The Dell Streak 7's "estimated ship date" has been pushed back several times since it was initially added to Dell's Canadian site in late April, but it looks like it is finally available! The Streak 7 runs Android 2.2 Froyo, and has a 7" (800x480) capacitive touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass. It is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and comes with 16GB of internal storage memory, and features a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video recording. The Streak 7 also has a secondary front-facing 1.3MP camera, and supports Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity.

The Streak 7 is available now from Dell online for $399.99. While the relatively low price tag might seem enticing to some, the older OS version might hurt this tablet. With no clear plans for Honeycomb in the future, the Streak 7 packs in some great specs but risks being left behind.

Dell updated their Canadian site last month to include the Dell Streak 7, an Android powered tablet set to launch for just $399.99. The estimated ship date was originally set to late April, and was then changed to May 3rd. Now, with the device nowhere to be found, the estimated ship date has been pushed back yet again. Now, the device is expected to launch this Thursday, May 12th.

Those holding out for this Android 2.2 tablet have seen enough delays, so hopefully it will finally launch. If you have the extra $100 to spend however, it might be worth checking out the variety of Honeycomb 3.0 tablets that have, or will be launching soon.

A few weeks back, we let you know that Rogers was planning to launch the WP7-powered Dell Venue Pro sometime in March, and thanks to information leaked on the internet, we now have a date to look forward to. The Venue Pro, which is apparently set to be released on March 17th, features a 4.1" (480x800) touchscreen display, 5MP camera with 720p HD video capture, and a full sliding QWERTY keyboard. Pricing for the Venue Pro was originally thought to be $149.99 on a 3 year term or $599.99 contract-free, but we're also hearing that those price points could be reduced by about $50 each. Keep an eye out, we'll be posting pricing and the launch date as soon as we receive confirmation!

Rogers customers who own a Dell Streak are in luck today, as the Android 2.2 Froyo update is being rolled out OTA(over-the-air). The update, which brings Adobe Flash support and Dell's "Stage" software, is available now, and Streak users should be prompted to update the next time their phone is rebooted. The other main benefit users will experience with this new OS version is significantly wider compatibility with recently released apps, as many developers are designing their products to function with Android OS 2.0 or higher only.

Note: Some users are experiencing issues when updating their Streak's OTA, stating that they experience repeated "Force close" problems immediately after the update. Be sure to manually back up your crucial data before performing the upgrade. Lastly, if you do experience the "Force close" problem after updating, try navigating the menus and perform a Factory Reset on the device, as this reportedly fixes the problem and leaves you with a fresh Android 2.2 Froyo install.

Rogers has officially launched the Dell Streak, a smartphone/tablet crossover that runs on Android.

Rogers has recently put out a new issue of their URMagazine, and one of the most interesting articles shows off the Dell Streak, a tablet/phone crossover device that runs on the Android platform. The Streak features a 5" (800x480) display, 5MP camera with dual LED flash and video capture capabilities, a front-facing VGA camera (presumably for video calling), GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Apparently it will run Android 1.6 at launch, though speculation points to a near-future upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo which should enable features like Flash support, and more. Though Rogers pricing hasn't been announced as of yet, Dell currently sells the device for $549.99 USD, and AT&T is offering it up at $299.99 on a 2 year contract.

We have some information on the new Windows Mobile operating system - Windows Phone 7, and though we haven't heard a whole lot about this platform as of yet, some new details have emerged. According to Greg Milligan, Microsoft Canada's Mobility Solutions Manager, Windows Phone 7 will launch simultaneously in the U.S. and Canada, and will be available on multiple carriers for Canadians to choose from around the Holiday season. Apparently initial manufacturers will include LG, Samsung, and HTC, with Dell emerging in the market soon afterwards and the possibility of other manufacturers in 2011.
