We recently let you know that Bell and Virgin Mobile were getting set to launch the Motorola MOTOLUXE, with Bell planning on doing so on May 22nd. Details were unclear for Virgin Mobile, but right on time with Bell, the Motorola MOTOLUXE is now available.

The MOTOLUXE features a 4? (480 x 854) touch screen display, and is powered by an 800 MHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. It features an 8 MP camera with LED flash, and a front-facing VGA camera. The MOTOLUXE runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread along with Motorola?s new interface featuring their Social Graph, Activity Graph, Music+, and Smart Gallery.

The Motorola MOTOLUXE is now available from Bell and Virgin Mobile. Bell is offering it up for free on a 3 year term or $299.95 no-term. Virgin Mobile was supposed to launch it for free as well (on a term) according to Motorola, however they currently have it listed at $29.99 on a 3 year term or SuperTab, and a very affordable $229.99 with a monthly plan.

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.

Both Virgin Mobile and parent-company Bell have officially released BlackBerry OS 6 for two of the three older devices promised to be receiving the update, the Bold 9700 and Curve 3G 9300.

Some exciting news for Android lovers has come out recently, with Google announcing the Google Nexus S and officially advertising Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread. The new OS version will be coming to the Google Nexus One within the next few weeks apparently, while it will first be found on the new Nexus S that is set for launch in the U.S. On December 16th.

OS 2.3 Gingerbread is said to be the fastest Android OS version to date, and provides a newly updated keyboard, some user interface refinements, and more. The Nexus S, Google newest developer phone set to launch in the U.S. on December 16th, is a powerful device that can easily rival the top smartphone in the market today. Featuring a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 4" (800x480) touch screen display, 16GB of internal memory, and 512MB of RAM, the internal specifications are powerful. The Nexus S doesn't stop there though, also featuring NFC (Near-field communications), a 5MP camera capable of recording HD video, Wi-Fi (b, g, n), and of course GPS and bluetooth connectivity. The Nexus S will be available on Thursday, December 16th in the United States for $529USD at Best Buy, though no word yet on if or when it will available in Canada.

With Rogers, Bell, Telus, and Virgin Mobile confirming that the BlackBerry Torch 9800 will arrive on September 24th, Best Buy has recently started accepting pre-orders for those looking to secure one for themselves. All it takes to reserve your Torch 9800 is a trip your nearest Best buy location and a $50 deposit, which should ensure you're one of the first to own one in Canada.

The BlackBerry Torch is RIM's first sliding handset that features a touch screen along with a full QWERTY keyboard, and it features the new BlackBerry 6 OS, along with a significantly improved web browser, improved user interface/menus, and more.

Bell has released a document internally stating compatible devices should receive the upgrade to BlackBerry 6 in early 2011. BlackBerry 6 is RIM's newest mobile operating system that features a significantly improved browser, new menus, and a new media interface, among other changes. Devices that will get the update include the Pearl 9100, Bold 9700, and the recently launched Curve 9300. No word yet on when Rogers and Telus plan to release the updates, but it's likely that it will be within the same time frame.

There is a new BlackBerry coming out, and it's unlike any you've ever seen. Featuring a full touch screen and vertical sliding QWERTY keyboard, this new design has new software to accompany it. Coming with BlackBerry 6, RIM's new operating system, the user-interface is redesigned and features multiple improvements. Among the upgrades, is the new WebKit browser that is considerably faster than the existing BlackBerry browser, and is almost as fast as the iPhone 4 and Samsung Captivate. It also has a new Media menu that is similar to Apple's CoverFlow, and makes navigating much easier. From a hardware perspective, this new device features a normal touch screen that doesn't click, so those disappointed with the Storm line-up should not discount this handset. It also features a 5MP camera, 4GB of built in memory, and 512MB of RAM. Lastly, it supports HSPA, GPS, and Wi-Fi connectivity so you can get the most our of your mobile device.

Since RIM's announcement of the BlackBerry Torch 9800, Rogers, Bell, Telus, and Virgin Mobile have all confirmed that they will be carrying the device. Rogers states it will be launching "in coming weeks", while Telus simply advertises the launch for "this year", and Bell is saying sometime this fall. Virgin Mobile just says "Coming soon", adding to the list of vague launch date details. A few weeks back, a small rumour circulated the internet that Rogers might get the device exclusively for a month or two, and it seems unlikely that Canadian company RIM would hold off in Canada. It will be interesting to see how all of this pans out, but the BlackBerry Torch 9800 is definitely a device to look out for. No exact details on pricing, though AT&T will be launching it on August 12th for $199 on a 2 year contract.
