With the holiday season well underway, we're seeing carriers do their best to remain competitive with promotions, discounts, and offerings of all kinds. One of the latest promotions to launch is the waiving of activation fees on new line activations, which is normally a $35 charge billed to the account at the time of creation. The promotion is being offered by the big 3 carriers - Bell, Telus, and Rogers, and is effective until December 31st of this year. If you've been thinking about activating a new line with any of these 3 carriers, now is a great time, as you can take advantage of the many promotions such as this one.

Chatr is looking to increase the competition this holiday season by offering up a $10 discount on their price plans until the end of December.

Sasktel has recently introduced the red variation of the BlackBerry Torch 9800, a nice colour arriving just in time for the holidays. The red version comes in at the same price as the standard black version, which is $180 on a 3 year term, or $665 contract-free. The Torch is possibly RIM's most popular device right now, featuring an impressively responsive touchscreen, slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, and BlackBerry OS 6 featuring a new UI and WebKit browser.

Mobilicity has recently placed more of a focus on distribution channels, adding two more companies to their list of agreements intended to get their products and services out to more people. Both HMV, and 50 Zellers locations will now carry Mobilicity products and services, which is a nice variety of partners when taking their recent 7-eleven deal into consideration as well. Apparently Zellers locations in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Ottawa are already set-up, while HMV locations in Toronto and Ottawa are setting up throughout the holiday season.

Videotron has been stirring up some competition in the Quebec area, and was the first Canadian carrier to offer the Google Nexus One. Now they've dropped the "reduced price" of the device to $49.95, which previously stood at $99.95. Unfortunately the contract-free price remains the same, sitting at a steady $479.95 outright. In addition to the Nexus One price drop, we're also seeing the BlackBerry Pearl 3G go down to $0, and the Motorola XT720 drop to $99.95 "reduced price" What do you think about these recent price drops by Videotron? It's great to see all of the bargains starting to roll out for the holiday season!

With the holiday season practically upon us, Telus has dropped the price of the HTC Desire on a 3 year term to just $49.99, which is $30 lower than it was previously listed for. Hopefully there is enough stock for everybody who wants one of these Android-powered devices to pick one up. Oddly, there is no outright price listed on the site anymore, however it is available on a 1 year term for $399.99. If you've been thinking about picking up an HTC Desire, now's the time to make your move!

We have some information on the new Windows Mobile operating system - Windows Phone 7, and though we haven't heard a whole lot about this platform as of yet, some new details have emerged. According to Greg Milligan, Microsoft Canada's Mobility Solutions Manager, Windows Phone 7 will launch simultaneously in the U.S. and Canada, and will be available on multiple carriers for Canadians to choose from around the Holiday season. Apparently initial manufacturers will include LG, Samsung, and HTC, with Dell emerging in the market soon afterwards and the possibility of other manufacturers in 2011.
