The affordable Nokia C2-01 is now available from Bell, featuring a 2.2" (320x240) display, and standard phone keypad reminiscent of days passed. It comes with a 3.2MP camera and can record QVGA video. Connectivity options are limited to bluetooth for this simple handset, though it does come with an FM radio to listen to your favourite local channel on the go. The Nokia C2-01 is available now for free with a 3 year contract, or just $119.95 outright from Bell.

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!

The BlackBerry PlayBook has easily been one of the most anticipated devices to come to Canada, serving as a large step forward for Research In Motion. The PlayBook, which features a dual-core 1GHz processor and RIM's all-new QNX based OS, is now officially available via multiple channels.

You can pick up a PlayBook at Staples, Future Shop, Best Buy, Sears, and a variety of other retail stores. Numerous carriers are also offering the new BlackBerry tablet, though some, like Rogers, have been slow to update their website. Telus has updated their site to include the PlayBook, and Bell along with Mobilicity have created special offers where you can get a $100 mail-in rebate with the purchase of a PlayBook and BlackBerry smartphone at the same time. Bell's offer is effective until May 5th, while Mobilicity is keeping theirs available until May 15th.

If you've been holding out for the BlackBerry PlayBook, be sure to hit up one of the stores mentioned above or your favourite carrier to pick yours up today! The 16GB version is available for $499, while the 32GB comes in at $599, and the 64GB version is $699. [linki=http://www.mobileincanada.com/cellphone-994-en-bell-BlackBerry-PlayBook.html]

One of the major complaints from BlackBerry users recently is the lack of applications available for purchase/download, especially compared to other platforms such as iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), and Android (multiple devices). While it's still far off from Google's 50 000+ apps, and Apple's 100 000+ apps, this is still great news for BlackBerry users as the gap is slowly being closed. Among the 10 000 items now available for download are themes, games, and a variety of applications to help users get the most out of their handset.

BlackBerry users, what's your favourite game/application/theme? Drop by our forum and let us know! Forum
