Those who have been waiting for even more options when it comes to purchasing a tablet are in luck, as HP's first webOS tablet is coming in mid-July. The Wi-Fi only version is apparently set to cost $519.99 for the 16GB version, while the 32GB model will be $619.99.

The TouchPad runs on HP webOS 3.0, and features a 9.7" (768x1024) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. It seemingly only comes with a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and offers bluetooth and Wi-Fi (b, g, n) connectivity.

While it may be worth checking out if iOS, Android, or the PlayBook's QNX platform isn't for you, the TouchPad's pricing, and less-than-comparable specifications in some areas could result in a tough launch for HP. Only time will tell, however, so keep an eye out come mid-July!

Summer is coming, and with it comes WWDC and all kinds of announcements from Apple. This June, Apple says they're going to "unveil the future of iOS", which has many analysts sharing their thoughts. One of the most common rumours, with information apparently coming from individuals with knowledge of the company's supply chain, points to a September ship date for the iPhone 5.

Other speculation points to the new iPhone model having an edge-to-edge screen, but otherwise similar to the iPhone 4 physically. It will also come with an 8MP camera according to the information, and should have a much stronger A5 processor.

Who knows if this will prove to be true, or what else Apple has in store for us regarding iOS' future. Hopefully we'll see some truly innovative technology!

Yesterday Apple announced the much-anticipated iPad 2, releasing the specifications and features for the upcoming tablet. Coming in Wi-Fi and 3G models, buyers can choose between 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB variations to best suit their needs. The iPad successor comes in at 33% thinner than the original version, at only 8.8mm thick, and features front and rear facing cameras. The iPad 2 is powered by an A5 dual-core processor, and will also support HDMI out using a propriatary Apple accessory. The last noticeable change made over the original iPad is wireless hotspot functionality in iOS 4.3, a feature which Rogers has already confirmed will be enabled and usable on their version.

The Apple iPad 2 will be available in either black or white at launch, will run Apple iOS 4.3, and is expected to launch on March 25th for Canadians. No confirmation on pricing just yet, but we'll be sure to keep you updated once more information becomes available!

Exciting news came to us yesterday, when we found out that RIM is working on 3 new devices planned for launch later in 2011. The new devices add NFC (near field communications) technology, and are expected to launch with an OS version of 6.1.

The BlackBerry Curve "Apollo" is the next generation handset in the Curve series, and comes in at just 11mm thick. Featuring a full QWERTY keyboard, an HVGA (480x360) display, and a 5MP camera, the Apollo should make a great addition to RIM's handset line-up.

Next up the BlackBerry "Dakota", which looks like it may be the next generation in the Bold series. The Dakota has been rumoured for about a year now, but with more information finally surfacing on the internet, it looks like it may become a reality. The Dakota features a 2.8" (640x480) touch screen display, while retaining the typical BlackBerry form factor including the full QWERTY keyboard. The Dakota also comes with a 5MP camera with LED flash and HD video capture capabilities, and measures in at just 10.5mm thick.

Last in the list of new BlackBerry devices that were recently leaked is none other than the Torch 2, a BlackBerry with specs that compare to top end Android/iOS devices. The Torch 2 will be powered by a 1.2GHz processor, and features a 3.2" (640x480) display, a 5MP camera (presumably with HD video recording capabilities), along with 512Mb of RAM, 8GB of onboard internal memory, and NFC technology just like the other two devices.

No definite word on when we can expect to see these devices launch, but speculation is pointing at Q3 or so this year. With these devices launching with OS 6.1, it's unlikely that we'll see the PlayBook's QNX OS come to BlackBerry handsets this year, so if you're holding out for that, it may be quote the wait.

Most Canadian banks have mobile applications available for multiple platforms, including Android, Apple's iOS, and BlackBerry, so its strange that RBC hadn't launched their own. Luckily, iPhone and BlackBerry users can now download and install the RBC application, that allows users to view account balances, transfer funds, pay bills, use Interac Money Transfers, and even locate RBC branches and ATMs. The application was first launched for iPhone users, and has now been made available to BlackBerry users as well. The BlackBerry version is available for the Bold 9700 and 9000, Curve 8900, 8530, and 8520, along with the Tour 9630. To get the application for iPhone, visit App Store, or to get it for BlackBerry, simply head to mobile.rbcroyalbank.com.

Apple has recently made iOS 4.1 available for download to the public, which fixes a number of bugs, and adds a few features to supported devices. The update, which is available in iTunes now, adds Game Center functionality, which is basically an online gaming community for compatible iOS devices, along the lines of Xbox Live or PlayStation Network. Compatible devices include the iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, and the 2nd-4th generation iPod Touch models, and allows users to play games online with friends, family, etc. Along with the introduction of the Game Center, Apple has also updated the App Store to include a specific section just for compatible games, and though the list is currently small, we should see it grow more and more as time progresses.

What do you think about Apple's "Game Center"? Would you be interested in playing mobile games online with others? Let us know in the forums!

One of the major complaints from BlackBerry users recently is the lack of applications available for purchase/download, especially compared to other platforms such as iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), and Android (multiple devices). While it's still far off from Google's 50 000+ apps, and Apple's 100 000+ apps, this is still great news for BlackBerry users as the gap is slowly being closed. Among the 10 000 items now available for download are themes, games, and a variety of applications to help users get the most out of their handset.

BlackBerry users, what's your favourite game/application/theme? Drop by our forum and let us know! Forum

Effective this morning, Apple has officially made iOS 4 available to iPhone 3G and 3GS users via iTunes. To update, ensure you have the latest version of iTunes(9.2) and plug the device in. If not automatically prompted, click on the iPhone icon on the toolbar on the left-hand side of iTunes, and go to the summary page, selecting "Check for Update". Before updating, make sure to backup your applications and content so it can easily be synced to your device running the new iOS 4. iPhone 3G users be warned - some iOS 4 features are only compatible with the 3GS and upcoming iPhone 4 models, such as multi-tasking.

Along with Rogers, Telus, and Bell, Virgin Mobile has confirmed that they will be carrying the iPhone 4 "sometime in the coming weeks", remaining vague about specific availability dates and pricing. According to Apple, the device will be launching sometime in July, with speculation pointing to a mid-late month release. The iPhone 4 boasts considerable upgrades to the existing iPhone line-up, including an impressive 960x640 display, gyro-sensor for 6-axis control, 5 MP camera with HD video recording, and iOS 4 - which is said to carry with it more than 100 new features. If history repeats itself, the new iPhone will be priced in the $200 - $300 range on a 3 year contract, with outright purchases coming this time around at upwards of $649.

Bell is now offering up the refreshed Apple iPhone 3G for just $9.99 on a 3 year term to family and friends of Bell employees. To be eligible, the device must be activated on the $50 smartphone combo plan, and the employee themselves will have to follow internal procedures to have the offer fulfilled. While this is the lowest price we've seen in Canada for a refreshed iPhone, remember that all 3 major carriers (Rogers, Bell, Telus) have been confirmed to be carrying the iPhone 4 in July, and that the iPhone 3G will not support the upgrade to iOS 4. Bell's "refreshed" iPhones "are phones returned to Bell in an unused or slightly used condition and that have passed rigorous Quality Assurance testing", according to the offer's terms and conditions. This offer expires June 30th, 2010, so if you're interested be sure to take advantage soon.
