We recently let you know that Nokia and Rogers are getting set to launch the Lumia 900, but recent information being discussed online points to more from Nokia as it relates to Windows. Apparently, Nokia is looking to build and send out a batch of Windows 8 tablets running in Microsoft?s ?Metro? UI by the end of the year. No word on a Canadian release specifically, but with the tablet market heating up and another strong competitor coming on board with Windows 8, we should see it eventually.

There aren?t many other details available, though it?s expected to be powered by a Quallcomm dual-core chipset, and offers simple but not seamless support for existing Windows applications. Windows 8 is expected to launch this fall, and manufacturers such as Dell and HP are expected to have a strong presence early on. Could Nokia compete with these manufacturers in such a crowded tablet market?

We just let you know that Telus will be carrying the HTC 7 Surround exclusively in Canada, but it seems as though Rogers is looking to get in on some exclusive Windows Phone 7 action as well. Expected to launch in early November (simultaneously with AT&T), the Samsung Focus features a 4" (480x800) Super AMOLED display, is powered by a 1GHz processor, and comes with 8GB of internal storage built-in. Additionally, the handset will be able to carry microSD cards up to 32GB, and the device offers up a 5MP camera to top off the impressive specifications. No definite word on pricing as of yet, but we expect it to come in around the $200 mark, as that's what AT&T will be offering it up for.

It's great to see Microsoft launching hard with some great manufacturers, and it's even better knowing they've put some solid time and effort into the new Windows Phone 7 operating system.
