We've known for some time that Rogers is preparing to launch the LG Optimus 3D, however a specific launch date has remained secret thus far. Luckily, we've found out that many Rogers retail locations have received stock, indicating a near-future launch. The Optimus 3D should be available very soon, and pricing has been leaked at $99.99 on a 3 year term, or $474.99 contract-free.

While Bell has been stacking up their Android line-up, Rogers has been fairly quiet with theirs, until now. A few days back, Rogers confirmed that they will be launching two Android-powered 3D handsets, the HTC Evo 3D and the LG Optimus 3D. Both have impressive features as Android devices alone, but the addition of the 3D display and stereoscopic/3D capable camera are definitely unique and will set these handsets apart from others.

The HTC Evo 3D features a 4.3" (540x960) 3D LCD touchscreen display, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense. It's powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, and comes with 1GB of internal storage. It comes with a dual 5MP camera with dual-LED flash that can take 2MP stereoscopic photos, and record 720p 3D video, or full 1080p HD video. It also has a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and supports Wi-Fi(b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS connectivity, in addition to TV-out functionality.

The LG Optimus 3D has similar specifications, with a 4.3" (480x800) 3D LCD touchscreen display, and Android 2.2 Froyo initially. It's powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and comes with 8GB of internal storage. The Optimus 3D also has a dual 5MP camera with LED flash, and can record 720p 3D video or 1080p HD video. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi(b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, in addition to an HDMI port.

Existing Rogers customers can reserve either of these devices online by logging into their Rogers account, and using their newly introduced Reservation System. No word yet on pricing or an exact launch date, but we should see both of the devices come available soon.

KOODO Mobile has already included a variety of Android handsets in their line-up, but one design-type we don't see nearly enough anymore with smartphones are QWERTY handsets. The LG Optimus Chat, which according to screenshots leaked online will be the next Android device for KOODO, has a horizontally sliding keyboard for easy typing. It features a 2.8" (320x480) touchscreen display, and a 3.15MP camera. It runs on Android 2.2 Froyo and offers up Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS support.

While still unconfirmed, it looks like KOODO will be offering up the Optimus Chat for $200 outright, or $50 using their tab.

First Videotron launched the super-powerful LG Optimus 2X, and now WIND Mobile have gone ahead releasing the device as well. The 2X, for those who haven't kept an eye on it, features a 4" (480x800) touchscreen Gorilla Glass display, 8GB of storage, and an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It also has a secondary 1.3MP front-facing camera, and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, and the handset runs on Android 2.2 Froyo. Other notable features include its HDMI port and FM radio connectivity, which both seem to be hit or miss for recently released smartphones.

If you're looking to pick up the Optimus 2X from WIND Mobile, it is now available for the decent price of $445 contract-free. Customers also have the option of subsidizing a part of the cost using the WINDtab, which will reduce it down to $295 upfront, with the remainder being paid off monthly via your typical invoice. If you're looking for a powerful Android handset and like what WIND has to offer, the LG Optimus 2X might just be the perfect choice for you.
