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!

Telus has recently launched the HTC One X, one of the best Android handsets currently in market. Rogers has been offering this device exclusively for some time, but now Telus customers can get their hands on one as well.

The One X features a 4.7? (720 x 1280) Super IPS touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It comes with an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video captire, along with a front-facing 1.3 MP camera with 720p recording. As for power, the One X has a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and offers 16 GB of storage space. Connectivity options include LTE, HSPA, bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Beats Audio for music enthusiasts.

If you?d like to pick up a One X but Rogers hasn?t been an option, be sure to check out Telus now! It?s available for $129.99 on a 3 year term, or $629.99 outright.

While multiple carriers, including Bell, Telus, Sasktel, and Fido already offer the HTC One S, Rogers is just getting set to launch the handset themselves. Thanks to the device being added to Future Shop?s website, we now know to expect it sometime in the coming days or weeks. According to the product page, it will be priced at $149.99 on a 3 year term, however outright pricing isn?t posted.

The One S features a 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features HTC Sense, as do all HTC Android handsets.

So far this year, HTC has been pretty focused on their One line-up of Android handsets, at least for Canada. The line-up includes the One X, which Rogers currently offers, as well as the One S and One V. The One V is currently available from Bell, and the One S is expected to hit multiple carriers.

The HTC One S features a 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It comes with a secondary VGA front-facing camera, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The One S is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB internal storage.

The One V features a 3.7? (480 x 800) touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. It?s powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, and comes with 4 GB of internal memory. What is particularly appealing about this Android 4.0 ICS handset is its unibody construction, similar to the HTC Legend that was known as a pretty tough device.

Unfortunately, pricing is not confirmed as of yet. What we can let you know, thanks to internal documents leaked online, is that both are planned for launch on May 17th. Additional support for that timeframe is the fact that dummy units have been received by numerous stores. Given the specifications, we can expect the One V to come in at a relatively affordable price, while the One S will probably be comparable to other higher end Android handsets. Stay tuned, we?ll let you know as soon as pricing can be confirmed!

Possibly one of the most anticipated Android handsets since the OS was first introduced by Google, the Samsung Galaxy S III has been officially announced. It features a 4.8? (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED touchscreen display, and is powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor. There will be two variations, an HSPA+ model and an LTE version. It comes with an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording, along with a 1.9 MP front-facing camera capable of 720p video capture. Other noteworthy specifications include its 1 GB of RAM, and its Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC connectivity options.

Some of the features that make the S III unique in the Android market include SmartStay and S Voice. SmartStay uses the front-facing camera to detect when you are looking at the screen, preventing the display from timing out. S Voice allows users to give voice commands, and is somewhat similar to Siri on the iPhone. Those who purchase a Galaxy S III will also get a whopping 50 GB of extra Dropbox storage, and will have a wide array of accessories to purchase.

As for design, the Galaxy S III?s huge 4.8? screen rests inside an 8.6 mm thin body. The handset is going to be made in black and white versions, though it hasn?t been confirmed that we?ll see both in Canada. What has been communicated by Samsung, however, is that we will see the device sometime this summer! Pricing and carrier availability are unknown currently, but it?s likely that Rogers, Bell, and Telus will each offer the device, in one variation or another.

If you?re interested in this Ice Cream Sandwich device, you?re surely not alone. Check back soon as we?ll keep you updated on any further information pertaining to its launch!

Over the last few years, RIM?s BlackBerry Bold line-up has been the reliable choice for many Canadians. Even though BlackBerry handsets haven?t seen the success of Android devices or the iPhone lately, many people still love their Bolds and aren?t willing to switch platforms. For those, Fido has launched the BlackBerry Bold 9790, making it available for $50 on a 3 year term, or $450 outright.

The Bold 9790 runs on BlackBerry 7 OS, and features a 2.45? (480 x 360) touch screen display and a 5MP camera with LED flash and video capture capabilities. It comes with 8 GB of internal memory, and is powered by a 1 GHz processor and 768 MB of RAM. Other notable features include its Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC capabilities.

Motorola has sent out a press release officially announcing that the MOTOLUXE is heading to Canada, with a scheduled Q2 release. This new Android handset from Motorola features a new user-interface that ?learns? about your use and tailors certain parts of your home screen to your behaviour. For instance, the contacts you interact with most often will have larger icons than the rest on your home screen, and the ?Activity Graph? will display your most used applications. The device also has a multi-coloured LED indicator, something BlackBerry handsets (with the use of 3rd party apps for advanced customization) have had for some time.

Other features include its 4? (480 x 854)) touch screen display, and 8 MP camera with flash and HD video capture. It has an 800 MHz processor, 1 GB of internal storage, and 512 MB of RAM. The current version of the handset available outside of Canada runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so we?ll probably see this at launch as well.

Pricing and carrier availability are currently unconfirmed, though rumours around the internet point to Bell and Virgin Mobile picking this device up. With the modest specifications and unique, software-oriented approach, we should see the Motorola MOTOLUXE on the lower end of the pricing spectrum.

This is a bit of an odd scenario, one we don?t see too often. Sony recently announced their first device following their takeover of Sony Ericsson, the Xperia S, and clearly stated that it would be available globally in March. As such, it has been assumed that the device will land in Canada, though which carrier is unknown. Recently, Sony announced that the device has shipped globally, but that they?re leaving it up to carriers to announce specific availability.

Next, Sony posted an image on their Facebook page that made clear mention the device would be heading to Rogers. What most saw as a clear-cut indication turned out to be some kind of mistake, however. Sony removed the image from their Facebook page, and Rogers stated that they will not be selling the device directly, though it will work on their network. This has led to some back-and-forth online, with many people believing the handset will be sold unlocked in Sony Stores rather than through carriers. This would certainly be an interesting step for Sony to take, and if they?re going that route, it will be interesting to see the results.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (720 x 1280) display, and a 12 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It has a secondary front-facing 1.3 MP camera capable of 720p video recording, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with ICS planned for Q2 sometime. Similarly to most recent Xperia handsets, it features the Mobile BRAVIA Engine and connectivity including HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. It also comes with NFC capabilities, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.

Sony, which recently took over on the Sony Ericsson side of things, has officially announced another addition to their Xperia line-up, the sola. The sola has one feature that stands out in particular, its ?floating touch? display. It measures in at a pretty standard 3.7? (480 x 854), but lets you browse the web by hovering your finger to control a ?cursor?, and tapping to click. If it works fluidly, this could be especially helpful when clicking small links, and will bring the Xperia sola one step closer to desktop-like browsing.

Other specifications for the sola include its dual-core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory. It features a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, along with the usual Sony features like the Mobile Bravia Engine. Connectivity includes HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC for those early adopters.

The Sony Xperia sola will be available in white, black, and red when it launches globally in a few months. No confirmation as of yet that it will be launching in Canada, but with most Sony handsets hitting our soil early, we?re hoping for a prompt and quick release here. Interested? We?ll keep you updated as more information is made available!

HTC has recently come forward to reveal two new Windows Phone Mango handsets, the Titan and the Radar. As for the OS itself, recently leaked information states that Mango has been delayed until September 15th at the earliest, and could take several weeks more for individual carriers to release it.

The HTC Titan features a 4.7" (800x480) Super LCD touchscreen display, and is powered by a single-core 1.5GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It has an 8MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video capture, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (b/g/n), bluetooth, and GPS.

The HTC Radar will likely come in on the more affordable side, with comparably modest features including its 3.8" (800x400) LCD touchscreen display, and single-core 1GHz processor. It also has 512MB of RAM, and offers up a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD recording, with a VGA front-facing camera. Connectivity options include WI-FI (b/g/n), bluetooth, and GPS as well.

No word on if/when these Windows Phone Mango handsets will launch in Canada, or pricing. Hopefully we'll see official launch information for both of them for Canada soon, we'll surely be keeping an eye out!
