Both Telus and KOODO Mobile have officially released the INQ Cloud Touch, an affordable Android 2.2 handset. This new addition to their line-up features a 3.5" (320x480) touchscreen display, 5MP camera, and is powered by a 600MHz processor. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi with hotspot functionality, and bluetooth. The Cloud Touch places a focus on Facebook, and it looks as though INQ have included some of their own Facebook widgets for use on the homescreens.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in, it's available now from Telus for $29.99 on a 3 year term, or $229.99 contract-free. KOODO Mobile has it listed for $50 using the tab, or $200 outright.

RIM have been slowly rolling out BlackBerry OS 6 to some of the more recent devices they offer, with each individual carrier packaging and releasing the updates themselves. Now, WIND Mobile customers who own either a Bold 9700 or Curve 9300 are in luck, as the quickly growing carrier has officially released the upgrade. For those who own a Pearl 9100, WIND has stated that the new OS "will be available in coming weeks". The update is available now, and can be downloaded/installed using the latest version of Desktop Manager.

In case you haven't been following the changes RIM have been implementing, BlackBerry OS 6 features a number of improvements over OS 5, including the new WebKit browser, new menu and homescreen layout, along with a variety of performance improvements overall.

Rogers customers who own either the Sony Ericsson X10 or X10 Mini have been waiting quite some time for Android 2.1 Eclair to launch for the device, and as of Sunday, it finally has! The updated OS offers several new features and changes to the devices software, including HD 720p video capture, auto-focus, a new lock screen, 2 additional homescreens (for a total of 5), and much more. To get the update, you'll have to head to the Sony Ericsson website, as it isn't currently available for OTA install.

Sony Ericsson X10 owners have been waiting for a very long time for an update Android version to come to their devices, and the time is fast approaching. Apparently the update will roll out to Rogers customers who own either an X10 or X10 Mini sometime in the week of November 8th, which is now only a few days away. The update is supposedly bringing features like 2 additional homescreens, a new lockscreen, and some updates to TimeScape, though we now have word that a couple of other changes will come as well - both devices will see battery life improved by 20-25%, the overall speed and navigation of the phone should be faster and smoother, and the X10 model will apparently be getting 720p HD video recording and playback. Hopefully the update doesn't get pushed back even further, but with such an extensive wait having already occurred, we can only hope that Ericsson and Rogers will have this one ready in time.

Those who have been holding out for the iPhone 4 in white received some disappointing news today, as Apple Spokeswoman Trudy Muller stated "We?re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone 4 yet again, but we?ve decided to delay its release until this Spring." The delay is rumoured to be because they are having difficulty matching the homescreen button to the rest of the housing, though this hasn't been confirmed, and probably never will be. Certainly disappointing news, but at least it hasn't been scrapped altogether. Are you going to hold out for a bit longer for the iPhone 4 in white?

Unfortunately we haven't gotten confirmation of exactly when the Android 2.1 update will be coming to the Sony Ericsson X10 as of yet, but we're pretty sure that it will drop sometime fairly soon. What we do know, however, is what you can expect to see with the OS update. TimeScape will be getting a small update that enables autoscrolling of information so users won't need to enter/exit applications to see full messages. Additionally, users will get 5 homescreens (as opposed to the existing 3), and each one will be capable of holding 20 icons rather than just 16. The other big improvement that's set to come with the update is continuous auto-focus, so when users are recording videos, the device will continually auto-focus based what it is capturing - a nifty feature that is sure to improve video recording on the device. No word yet on whether HD video capture or the LED flash will be enabled, but odds are Sony Ericsson would have mentioned those features, so it isn't looking good.

Sony Ericsson X10 and X10 Mini owners have been waiting ever-so-impatiently for Android 2.1 Eclair to be released for their devices, and it seems like the time is finally coming near. Originally planned for earlier this year, the update has seen a number of delays and set backs, much like Android OS updates for other devices. For the X10, the update will provide 5 homescreens, HD video recording, and a few more features. The X10 Mini will see improvement to bluetooth connectivity, as well as TimeScape and MediaScape functionality. Unfortunately after 2.1 Eclair, the X10 series of handsets won't be getting future OS upgrades, so it looks like that's the end of the line.

HTC Magic+ owners who are with Rogers have something to be excited about as of yesterday, as the long awaited Android OS 2.1 Eclair update was finally released. The update, which provides more homescreens, significantly better performance, and a variety of new features, was pushed out over-the-air recently, and seems to run exceptionally well.
