Bell recently launched the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE, and now Sasktel is advertising it on their site. Initially they had it labelled as ?Coming soon?, however that label has now disappeared, indicating that it?s now available from the Saskatchewan carrier. Users will be able to benefit from the improved resolution, processor and overall enhancements over the standard Galaxy S II, however LTE connectivity won?t be coming until this fall.

The S II HD LTE features a 4.65? (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass. It?s powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB of storage. Currently, the S II HD LTE runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though an Ice Cream Sandwich update is expected in the coming weeks. Other notable features include its 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, along with a secondary 2 MP camera.

If you?re in the market for a new Android handset and can?t wait for the Galaxy S III, be sure to check out the Galaxy S II HD LTE from Sasktel. It is available now for $129.99 on a 3 year term, or $569.99 monthly.

Those who simply cannot wait until this summer?s Galaxy S III launch have what may be the next best Android handset from Samsung. The Galaxy S II HD LTE is now officially available from the carrier, and is similar to Rogers? S II LTE, with some changes. Among the differences is the improved 4.65? (720 x 1280) display, and a few slight changes to the physical design like the placement of the front-facing camera.

If you?re interested in the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE, you can pick one up now from Bell for $99.95 on a 3 year term, or $549.95 no-term.

We just let you know that Samsung had officially announced the Galaxy S II LTE, and already Rogers has come forward with confirmation that they will carry it. Their LTE network is currently live in Ottawa, and will expand to other major cities by the end of 2011, which is also when we can expect the Galaxy S II LTE. No word on pricing, but this handset is sure to sell well, especially when considering its improved processor and significantly faster data connectivity.

Additionally, Rogers will be launching 3 other new devices, including the Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S, an LTE tablet, and an LTE HTC device. These will add to the Sierra Wireless Rocket Stick, and of course, the LTE Galaxy S II. Other news from the release today includes a Toronto launch date for LTE, which is set for September 28th. Montreal and Vancouver will go live by the end of the year.

Bell and Virgin Mobile have gone ahead with the launch of two new BlackBerry handsets, the Bold 9900 and Torch 9810! These BlackBerry 7 devices mark a new generation of handsets from RIM, and offer significant improvements in specifications over existing BlackBerry models.

The Bold 9900 features a 2.8" (640x480) touchscreen display, along with a full QWERTY keyboard, and maintains the traditional Bold form factor. It is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, and comes with 8GB of storage. It offers up a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, and includes connectivity options including Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS. It runs on BlackBerry OS 7 which fine tunes many of the features introduced in OS 6, including an improved browser experience, voice activated search, and more.

The Torch 9810 also runs on BlackBerry 7, and features a 3.2" (480x640) touchscreen display, and vertically sliding QWERTY keyboard, maintaining the recently introduced Torch form factor. Most of the features are identical to the Bold 9900, including a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, and the 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. Connectivity options are also the same, with Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS.

Bell is offering up the Bold 9900 for $599.95 outright, or $169.95 on a 3 year term. The 9810 is available from them for $149.95 on a 3 year contract, or $599.95 outright. No word on whether all stores have received stock, but they are available for online purchase.

Virgin Mobile has both handsets priced the same (basically), with the Bold 9900 priced at $169.99 on a 3 year term, or $599.99 outright, and the Torch 9810 priced at $149.99 on a 3 year term, or $599.99 contract-free.

Beginning yesterday, the BlackBerry World 2011 event is where most expect new device and software announcements, and RIM lived up to those expectations. Announcing the BlackBerry 9900/9930 models and BlackBerry 7 OS, RIM stated that the Bold Touch is expected to be available from carriers around the world beginning this Summer.

The Bold Touch 9900/9930 are essentially the same device, though the 9930 operates on CDMA networks, whereas the 9900 is GSM and HSPA+ compatible. They feature a 2.8" (640x480) VGA multitouch display, while retaining the familiar BlackBerry design that comes with a full QWERTY keyboard. The Bold Touch is a significant improvement over current BlackBerry handsets, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. It has a 5MP camera with 720p video capture, and supports NFC, Wi-Fi, GPS, and bluetooth connectivity. It comes in at just 10.5mm thick, making it the thinnest BlackBerry yet. Lastly, the Bold Touch runs on BlackBerry 7 OS, RIM's latest version of their platform. No word on pricing or exact launch dates, but we should see these launch by late Summer.

BlackBerry 7 OS brings with it several new features over the current 6.0 version, including a significantly improved browser with faster rendering and full HTML5 support. It also offers voice activated search, and integrates "BlackBerry Balance", a feature that helps separate personal content from corporate items on your device.

BlackBerry 7 OS will only be available for the Bold Touch 9900/9930, and will not be compatible with existing devices from RIM. There will likely be several newer devices announced with the OS in the near-future, but this new Bold series handset will likely be their flagship model. Those who purchase the device will also get the full version of Docs To Go out-of-box, so users will quickly be able to access all of their documents, including PDFs.
