Apple retail stores as well as Future Shop will be opening their doors at 8am this Friday, March 16th. No word on how much stock each will have, or if all Future Shop locations will have inventory come launch day, but it may be worth a try for those who just can?t wait for the next waves of shipments from Apple.

As a reminder, pricing starts at $519 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, while the 16GB LTE version begins at $649.

Staples wasn't previously known for being a major retailer when it comes to mobile products, but they are certainly stepping up their game with the recent popularization of tablets. First they launched the BlackBerry PlayBook, right along with the carriers and other department stores to carry it. Now, they have updated their inventory to include two Android tablets, the Acer Iconia 10" tablet, and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. They are also offering a Windows 7 tablet, also an Acer Iconia 10" model

The Android-powered Acer Iconia runs Gingerbread 3.0, and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor. It has a 10.1" (1280x800) touchscreen display, and features a 5MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP front-facing secondary camera. It has a microHDMI port, and comes with 32GB of internal memory, along with a microSD card slot and connectivity options including Wi-Fi and bluetooth. The Android Acer Iconia 10" tablet is available for ordering now from Staples for $499.99. Unfortunately it's currently marked as an "Extended Delivery Product", meaning it will take 1-2 weeks for delivery. Additionally, it isn't available in-store as of yet, but should be coming to retail locations soon.

There is also a Windows 7 based Acer Iconia tablet available through the retailer, which features a 10.1" LED-backlit touchscreen display, and 2GB of RAM. It has a dual-core 1GHz AMD processor, and comes with 32GB of internal storage. The Windows 7 Iconia has two 1.3MP cameras (one in the front, one in the back), and features Wi-Fi and bluetooth connectivity. It comes with 2 USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI port for wired connectivity as well. One of the best things about the Windows 7 Iconia tablet is that it comes with a full QWERTY keyboard dock, making typing significantly easier on the go. The dock also includes an additional USB port, and an Ethernet port for faster wired internet connectivity when at home. The Windows 7 Acer Iconia tablet is available from Staples now, though is also an "Extended Delivery Product". Orders will be shipped within 1-2 weeks and the device is not yet available at retail locations.

The last tablet on the list of recent additions to Staples line-up is the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, which is available in 16GB or 32GB versions. It has a 10.1" (1280x800) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It runs on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and has a 5MP camera, in addition to a 2MP front-facing secondary camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and bluetooth, and it has a microHDMI port, in addition to a microUSB, full USB 2.0, and microSD card slot. The Asus Eee Transformer is available under the same conditions as the previous two tablets, with expected delivery taking 1-2 weeks. It isn't available in retail locations either, but will hopefully be added to store shelves soon. One of the major features of the Asus Eee Transformer is the attachable dock, which not only gives users a full QWERTY keyboard, but significant extension in battery life. No word on when this additional accessory will be made available, but it shouldn't take too long!

KOODO has been doing a great job of expanding their line-up to include more data-oriented devices, hopefully it doesn't stop any time soon!

There have been a variety of handsets launching in Canada lately across the multiple carriers, and Rogers is adding yet another to their inventory. The Nokia E5, which we can expect to launch in the near-future according to recently leaked information, runs on Symbian S60 OS v9.3. It features a 2.4" (320x240) display, full QWERTY keyboard, and a 5MP camera with LED flash and VGA video recording. The E5 is powered by a 600MHz processor and 256MB of RAM, and features connectivity including Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS. No word yet on a specific launch date or pricing as of yet, but we'll let you know once more information is made available.

It has certainly been a long and impatient wait for Canadians looking to get their hands on a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate through Rogers, but it seems as though the time has finally come. As of yesterday, the Captivate is officially available for $179.99 on a 3 year term, or $549.99 contract-free, though inventory is apparently limited, so it will likely sell out fast. The Captivate features a 4" (480x800) super AMOLED touch screen display, along with a 1GHz processor, 5MP camera capable of recording 720p video, and 16GB of onboard memory. Additionally, the device support Wi-Fi connectivity to help users stay connected, and apparently comes with Swype installed right out of the box. The Samsung Galaxy S Captivate ships running Android OS 2.1, though we've recently gotten word that v2.2 will be available by "early 2011" at the latest. If you're looking to pick one of these up, it's best to act quickly, as odds are it will sell out very fast - so head to your local Rogers retail outlet or call Customer Care now!

Rogers has updated their website and inventory to include a new "smokey violet" version of the recently launched BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300. The new version has all of the same specifications, including a 2.4" (320x240) display, full QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera. The new handset from RIM supports 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, and bluetooth connectivity, and will get the upgrade to BlackBerry 6 early next year more than likely.

At the Canadian Telecom Summit held today, Rogers announced that we can expect several new Android products to be launched in the future by the carrier. Though no specific details were given, it was made clear that the loss of Canadian iPhone exclusivity last year put a dent in the carrier's profits, leading to an increased focus on the Android platform. Specifically, it was stated that devices to be expected include Motorola and HTC handsets, though no model names were provided.

In the same interview, President of Rogers communications Rob Bruce stated ?We?d love to distribute it today if the inventory is there", referring to the Apple iPad, though it doesn't look promising that Apple will allow carriers to offer the popular tablet device directly.
