We just let you know that Rogers is getting set to exclusively launch the LG Optimus Pad, but it looks like they've got another exclusive that will soon be launching. The Huawei S7 is an entry-mid level tablet that features a 7" (480x800) touchscreen display, 2MP rear and front facing cameras, and 3G, Wi-Fi, and bluetooth capabilities. The S7 is powered by a 1GHz processor and will launch running an OS earlier than Honeycomb (Eclair or Froyo).

No word yet on price points or exact availability, but we'll be sure to share any information that comes our way.

We let you know several months back that the Xperia X10 from Sony Ericsson had reached the end of the line in regards to OS updates. Stuck at 2.1 Eclair (without multitouch), many Canadians were outraged. Luckily, Sony Ericsson listened to their customers, and have decided to bring Gingerbread 2.3 to the device. Expected sometime in late Q2 or early Q3, the update will lighten Sony Ericsson's presence in the Android OS, and bring with it the many performance improvements that Gingerbread has to offer.

According to Sony Ericsson, the ability to bring Gingerbread to the X10 is newly realized, and comes with their work on the upcoming Arc and Play devices. Great news for X10 owners, now let's just hope that Rogers cooperates and can get the update to Canadians in a timely manner!

Sasktel has been making the news quite a bit since they launched their 3G network several months back, and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down. According to several statements made by the Saskatchewan carrier, they will soon be launching 3 new devices - the HTC Incredible S, the iPhone 4, and the Samsung Galaxy 550.

The HTC Incredible S, which is expected to launch "sometime in April" features a 4" (480x800) touchscreen display, 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video capture, along with a secondary 1.3MP front-facing camera. Powered by a 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, the Incredible S comes with 1.1GB of internal storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and the HTC Incredible S will run Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, along with HTC Sense UI 3.0. Virgin Mobile, and possibly Bell, are also expected to launch the Incredible S.

Next up is the Samsung Galaxy 550, which is also expected sometime in April. The Galaxy 550 runs on Android Eclair 2.1. Beyond that, there aren't many details available regarding this upcoming Android device, but it looks like it will be a mid-range handset. No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep an eye out for more details!

Lastly, comes the iPhone 4. Sasktel has put up a registration page for those interested in receiving updates regarding the launch of the popular device on Sasktel. The release date is still unknown, but it's definitely a good sign that they have implemented a registration page. Hopefully we'll see the iPhone 4 launch before Apple's next generation of mobile device is announced, which will likely happen sometime this summer.

Overall, great job from Sasktel expanding their line-up to include several options for Saskatchewan residents!

Videotron and WIND Mobile customers who own the Motorola XT720 are getting some bad news, as Motorola has officially stated that it will not be getting any upgrades passed it's current OS version of 2.1 Eclair. The lack of OS upgrades coming to certain devices is probably be biggest drawback of having the Android platform operate on so many devices from such a variety of manufacturers.
