We let you know some time ago that Bell was preparing to launch the super-affordable HTC Wildfire S, and followed up shortly with news that Virgin would also release it. Bell was first up to make the Android 2.3 powered handset available, and now we've received word that the Virgin launch is just around the corner.

The Wildfire S features a 3.2" (320x480) touchscreen Gorilla Glass display, and is powered by a 600MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It also features a 5MP camera with LED flash and VGA video capture, and comes with 512MB of ROM storage for applications and setting data. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, and supports HSPA data speeds reaching a maximum of 7.2 Mbps.

The HTC Wildfire S is available now from Bell for $0 on a 3 year term (originally $29.95, but placed on sale already!), and $249.95 contract-free. Virgin Mobile will be offering it up any day now for $29.99 on a 3 year term or using the SuperTab, and outright pricing is consistent with Bell's, coming in at $249.99. Saskatchewan residents can also expect to get their hands on the device via Sasktel, though details are much more scarce regarding their launch.

It has been some time since RIM announced the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, but Virgin Mobile recently came forward reminding Canadians that they will be launching it soon. Posted on their Twitter profile, Virgin Mobile Canada stated "well be getting the bb 9900 super soon!"

No word on exactly when "super soon" is, but hopefully we'll see it launch in first part half of the summer. The Bold 9900 is a big step up for RIM and BlackBerry products, offering the familiar Bold shape and design, but also including a touchscreen. The 9900 has a 2.8" (640x480) touchscreen display, along with the standard trackpad and full QWERTY keyboard. It also features a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. Other features include 8GB of internal storage, HSPA connectivity reaching 14.4Mbps, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS, and even possibly NFC support in the future.

Though the hardware is seeing a variety of big improvements over current BlackBerry devices, the OS will also be updated. BlackBerry OS 7.0 won't be available for existing models, and will begin its life with the 9900/9930. It features a variety of improvements and additional features, including an updated browser with full HTML5 support and faster rendering, in addition to "BlackBerry Balance", a feature that helps keep work/home content separate from each other.

No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep you updated with any further information that is made available.

We recently let you know that Virgin Mobile was rumoured to be launching the HTC Incredible S, and that Sasktel had confirmed that the high-end Android handset would coming to their network. Now, we have confirmation that Bell and Virgin will be launching the device, with an expected release date of April 4th. The information comes way of leaked screenshots, and though 3-year pricing hasn't been made available yet, we are expecting contract-free pricing to come in around $499.95.

The HTC Incredible S features a 4" (480x800) S-LCD touchscreen display, an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, along with a 1.3MP front-facing camera. Powered by a 1GHz Scorpion processor and 768MB of RAM, the Incredible S has 1.1GB of internal memory, and is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and users will be able to get HSPA download speeds up to 14.4Mbps using their cellular data plan. Overall, the HTC Incredible S is shaping up well, and should make a great addition to Sasktel, Virgin, and Bell's line-ups.

Bell is stepping up their competitive edge by reducing the price of their Novatel Wireless U547 Turbo Stick to $0 on either a 2 or 3 year term, though contract-free pricing remains the same at $199.95. The U547 is capable of download speeds of up to 42 Mbps using Bell's dual-cell HSPA network, a service that Telus is getting set to launch next month, so it's no surprise that Bell is offering a price reduction now. In order to get this Turbo Stick for free on a 2-3 year term, customers will have to sign up for the 42 Mbps Speed Upgrade for $10/month, and fall within Bell's coverage area for the service.
