Samsung has recently stated via Twitter that the Canadian Galaxy S III launch has been delayed. The release of the highly anticipated Android device has been pushed back by 7 days, and is now expected to be released on June 27th. The delay will apply to all carriers launching the handset, which is pretty well all of them.

The delay, according to Samsung, is due to the extreme worldwide demand for the handset. While it may be frustrating to wait the extra week, most people can agree that such a widespread simultaneous release within Canada is still a great thing.

Hopefully there aren't any additional delays, but we'll be sure to keep you updated on any further information on the Samsung Galaxy S III as it becomes available!

Sony Ericsson and Rogers are preparing to launch the Xperia Play and arc, and not it looks like Sony has a 3rd Xperia device they're looking to bring to Canada. The Neo, which has been added to their Canadian website, features an LED-backlit 3.7" (480x854) touchscreen display. It will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch, and has a 1GHz processor along with an 8.1MP camera with 720p HD video capture. The Xperia Neo has the same Mobile Bravia Engine and Exmor R technology that is in the arc, so it should have a great display and excellent photo capabilities in low light. Connectivity options are standard and include Wi-Fi (b, g, and n), bluetooth, and GPS.

No word yet on when the Xperia Neo will launch. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Great news for those with Fido or considering them for their mobile services, they have recently launched two new entry-level handsets - The Nokia C1 and LG Neon 2. Additionally, they have also released the white version of the LG Gossip, adding to the variety of devices available in their line-up.

The Nokia C1 is a very basic bar-style phone that features a 1.8" (128x160) display, bluetooth connectivity, and a VGA camera. The C1 supports up to 32GB of memory using a microSD card, along with FM radio connectivity. The LG Neon 2 features a 3" (240x400) touchscreen display, 2MP camera with video capture capabilities, and connectivity options including FM radio and bluetooth. The Neon 2 can be expanded up to 8GB via microSD card for those who want extra storage for their media.

Last on the list is the LG Gossip in white, which has all of the same features and specifications but comes in a nice white variety. All of these devices are available now from Fido, and all are $0 on a new 2-year term, though contract-free pricing varies from handset to handset. The Nokia C1 comes in at $50 contract-free, while the LG Neon 2 is set at $150 outright, and the LG Gossip in white is priced $90 without a term.

Telus confirmed recently that they will be launching the HTC Surround 7 and LG Optimus 7 on November 8th, which doesn't come as much of a surprise since it was announced early on that Canada would get a simultaneous launch to the U.S. for many Windows Phone 7 devices, but still nice to get confirmation. The great news coming out of the press release, however, is the pricing, which is set at $99 for either device on a 3 year term (voice + data over $50/month). If you're looking to be one of the first in Canada to have a Windows Phone 7 device, make sure to head to a Telus location nice and early on the 8th to get your preferred device. What do you think about Windows Phone 7 OS? Like?

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. Hopefully we'll see even more devices launched in the near-future, and as developers get some time with the new tools, we should see a large variety of applications ready at launch as well. This is truly an exciting day for anybody who has been waiting for the official Windows Phone 7 announcements!

We have some information on the new Windows Mobile operating system - Windows Phone 7, and though we haven't heard a whole lot about this platform as of yet, some new details have emerged. According to Greg Milligan, Microsoft Canada's Mobility Solutions Manager, Windows Phone 7 will launch simultaneously in the U.S. and Canada, and will be available on multiple carriers for Canadians to choose from around the Holiday season. Apparently initial manufacturers will include LG, Samsung, and HTC, with Dell emerging in the market soon afterwards and the possibility of other manufacturers in 2011.

We recently let you know that Rogers would be releasing the follow-up device to the LG Neon, the Neon 2, and they've done so today. Featuring a 3" (240x400) touch screen, full QWERTY keyboard, and 2 MP camera, this device is worth checking out for those who are budget-conscious. The LG Neon 2 has a built in FM radio and supports bluetooth connectivity. Memory can be expanded up to 8Gb via microSD to store music, videos, and more. The Neon is available now through Rogers for $19.99 with a 3 year contract, or $174.99 outright. We've also seen Futureshop advertise the device for $0 with a 3 year term, so if you're looking to get it on a contract, be sure to check that out as a purchasing option.

Rogers retail location have received LG Neon 2 dummy phones, and some have even started receiving real stock, so the launch should take place within the coming days. The Neon 2 is the follow-up handset to the original Neon, and features a 3" (240x400) touch screen, 2MP camera, along with a full sliding QWERTY keyboard. Originally set to cost $29.99 on a 3 year term, it looks like the price has been slashed before launch, with FutureShop advertising it for free with a 3 year contract. No word yet on outright pricing, or an exact launch date, but with stock arriving at stores now we should see it launch soon.

Finally a great quality QWERTY handset has come to Rogers? budget brand Fido. The Samsung Gravity T456 is a quad-band device, sporting a 1.3 megapixels camera with stereo Bluetooth capability and an expandable memory slot up to 4 GB. The stereo headset included in the box will come in handy when you?ll want to use the mp3 player. The Samsung T456 is available at Fido since March 16th. On a 2 year agreement, the Gravity retails for 25$, but if you want to go without being chained to Fido, you can go the monthly/prepaid way for 150$ If we compare this to the other low end QWERTY device from Fido, the LG Neon, it?s night and day. No random reboots, non responsive touch screen and buggy software. We can understand now why Samsung has the lowest defect rate in the industry.

Rogers add another QWERTY device, the LG Xenon GR500. The Rogers LG Xenon GR500 includes a 2.0 mega pixel, an embedded MP3 player, a stereo Bluetooth connection and obviously a QWERTY keyboard. A front facing camera is also include to make video calling and a touch screen. A nice device, better of the LG Neon T365, sell in Rogers store for 79.99$ with a 3 years agreement or 279.99$ without contract.
