Many X10 users were hoping to get pinch-to-zoom along with the Android 2.1 OS update, though the feature wasn't included unfortunately. In the past, Sony Ericsson has stated that the feature will never come to the X10, however they've recently reconsidered the idea and have decided to provide it in an OTA update sometime in Q1 next year. Apparently the feature won't be available to all markets, so fingers crossed that we get it here in Canada. Additionally, they have stated that the feature will only be available for select uses, such as web browsing and Google Maps. We'll be sure to let you know if more information becomes available.

Rogers has officially launched their Navigator application for the BlackBerry Torch 9800, which they've been pushing on BlackBerry users for some time now. The application is free to download via BlackBerry App World, however it requires a $4.99/month subscription to use. Luckily, users are able to unsubscribe directly from the application at any time, so if it doesn't seem worth it, it won't be much of a hassle to avoid the charge on your next months bill. The application, which is based on Telenav, offers users voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation, 2D and 3D maps, in addition to real time traffic information, and more.

Effective yesterday, Google has officially launched Google Maps Navigation 4.2 to Canadians running Android OS 1.6 or higher. The feature is an addition to the existing Google Maps application, and offers turn-by-turn voice navigation to users, much like traditional car-mounted GPS systems. With laws tightening up across Canada surrounding handheld device usage while driving, this is a much needed feature for users who wish to have one device "do it all". To enable the feature, simply download or upgrade Google Maps to version 4.2, which can be done by searching "Google Maps" in the Android Marketplace.
