A couple weeks back we let you know that the HP TouchPad would soon be landing in Canada (mid-July), with the webOS tablet priced at $519.99 for the 16GB model, and $619.99 for the 32GB version. Now, we're happy to let everybody know that the TouchPad is officially available for pre-order through major electronics retailers Best Buy and Future Shop. The estimated release date, as expected, is listed as July 15th.

The TouchPad is HP's first tablet that runs their recently acquired webOS (Palm), and has a 9.7" (768x1024) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. Unfortunately other features come in a bit on the low end, with a 1.3MP camera, and connectivity options including Wi-Fi (b/g/n), bluetooth, and some form of GPS support.

There are also a variety of accessories available along with it, including a wireless keyboard ($59.99), a charging dock ($79.99), and a few different cases/sleeves.

Earlier this month, we let you know that Google announced Honeycomb 3.1 for tablets, and the Motorola XOOM got it almost immediately for U.S. customers. Soon afterwards, Motorola Canada let users know, via Facebook, that the update would be coming Canadians "soon". Now, they have come forward on Facebook once again, this time stating "Our best estimate is that it will be available in the next couple of months."

While the news that Motorola is still working on the update is good, it does come as a bit of a disappointment to XOOM owners that it will take a couple of months. Hopefully they will take action with all of the feedback they've received and push it out sooner, but only time will tell.

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.
