Motorola recently announced two new handsets, the ATRIX HD LTE and the RAZR V. The ATRIX HD LTE features a 4.5? (720 x 1280) touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass and an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording. It has a secondary 1.3 MP camera and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. The ATRIX HD LTE runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and offers up 8 GB of storage. Bell has announced that they will be offering the handset exclusively in Canada, and internal documents have since been leaked pointing to an early August release.

The RAZR V is expected to be fairly similar, with the main differences found in the display and processor. The RAZR V comes with a 4.3? (540 x 960) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. It lacks the LTE connectivity that the ATRIX HD offers, but still looks like a great device. The RAZR V will be available from Bell in August as well, but will not be an exclusive. WIND Mobile is also set to launch it a little bit later in the year, announcing they would be carrying it ?this fall?.

Unfortunately there has been no word on pricing, but we?ll be sure to keep you updated!

A couple short weeks ago, we let you know that Sony had announced that they were shipping the Xperia S globally, but nothing specific was confirmed for Canada. Now, Sony has come forward with a press release stating that the Android device will be available on April 17th in limited quantities, exclusively from the Sony Store. As for pricing and carrier availability, they make mention that it is compatible with the Rogers network, and later stated that it would be available for $99.99 on a 3 year term through Rogers. Whether Sony will later allow Rogers to sell the handset or not hasn?t been revealed as of yet, and no mention of other carriers seeing the device in the future was made either.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (1280 x 720) Reality Display with the Mobile BRAVIA Engine, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. It comes with a 12 MP rear-facing camera with Sony Exmor R for mobile technology, which is capable or recording 1080p video. It also has a front-facing camera capable of 720p video capture, and offers up NFC connectivity, along with the regular connectivity support such as HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. It will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, however it?s apparently set for an ICS upgrade in the coming months.

Telus has surprisingly kept its Mike network active, and have actually launched another device for users of the push-to-talk service. The Motorola i420 is now available for $249.99 contract-free, and offers the Direct Connect feature that made the network, and compatible devices popular years ago. It features a 1.79" (128x160) display, flip form factor, and a number of basic features including bluetooth, GPS, and a VGA camera. While this may not serve as much news for regular consumers, the fact that Telus isn't letting up on this network should be a good indication for business owners and managers that they can continue to rely on it for direct (and instant) communication between its members.
