Samsung's Google Nexus S has created quite a bit of excitement in Canada lately, with at least 8 carriers planning to release the handset. Thus far, 3 carriers have officially launched the Nexus S, including Telus, Videotron, and Mobilicity.

Telus originally put the Android-powered Nexus S up for $549 contract-free, and $179.99 on a 3 year term. While the 3 year price point has remained consistent, they did go ahead and drop the outright cost to $499.99. Videotron has launched it for $529.95 outright, and $149.95 "Reduced price". Lastly, Mobilicity has also made the Nexus S available, for $499.99 contract-free.

Those holding out for other carriers, Best Buy has put up the Rogers, Fido, and KOODO versions on their site, though they aren't available for shipping yet. Rogers and Fido will each be charging $99.99 on a 3 year term, or $499.99 contract-free. KOODO's version will be available for $274.99 using their Tab, or $424.99 outright. Bell and WIND Mobile are also set to launch the Nexus S, though we haven't received any definite information on pricing.

We recently let you know that Telus, Rogers, Bell, Mobilicity, and Videotron had all confirmed that they would be carrying the Samsung Nexus S, and have even more information regarding the launch to share. The Nexus S is expected to launch in the first week of April, though confirmation of this release time-frame hasn't been received as of yet.

WIND Mobile also stepped forward, stating that they would likely be offering up the Nexus S to their customers as well. We also found information via a FutureShop press release that points to availability from KOODO Mobile and Fido as well, so it looks like the Nexus S will be available from nearly every carrier.

To recap on the Nexus S', it features a 4" (480x800) touchscreen display, a 5MP camera with LED flash, and will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch. This new Samsung handset carriers with it 16GB of internal memory, and features bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS connectivity. The other major feature found in the Nexus S is NFC (near field communications), a close-range data transfer technology that we should see implemented by som retail vendors within the next year or so. Lastly, the main advantage to owning a Nexus S over other high-powered Android handsets, is the pace at which OS updates are pushed out. The Nexus series handsets receive new OS versions before any other device, and so they are perfect for those who like to constantly have the latest and greatest.

A few days ago, Telus officially announced the Samsung Nexus S would be available relatively soon, with speculation pointing to a late March or early April release. Soon afterwards, information was made available to the public that confirms that Rogers, Bell, Mobilicity, and Videotron would also be launching the popular Android handset, though launch dates are unavailable thus far.

The Nexus S features Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread, a 4" (480x800) touchscreen display, and is powered by a 1GHz processor along with 512MB of RAM. Coming with 16GB of internal storage memory, the Nexus S also features a 5MP camera with LED flash, and bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS connectivity. This newest addition to Google's "Nexus" series also supports NFC (Near field communications), a technology that we'll likely see rolled out to the consumer market this year.

No word yet on an exact release date or price points, but we expect the Nexus S to launch across multiple carriers within a month or so. We'll be sure to keep you informed of any further updates.

We've been getting some great news on the next generation Android phones that will soon hit Canadian soil, so it's great to get the news that the Samsung Google Nexus S will be coming to Canada. Featuring NFC capabilities, the Nexus S runs Android 2.3, and also features a 4" (480x800) super AMOLED touch screen display, a 1GHz processor, and a 5MP camera capable of recording 720p HD video. Coming with 16GB of memory and 512MB of RAM, the Nexus S isn't the biggest step up from other Android devices on the market today, but definitely makes for a good option.

With Android 2.3 Gingerbread rolling out to the Nexus One in the coming weeks, many Canadians who own other Android-powered smartphones are left wondering when they'll see upgrades, at least to 2.2 Froyo, for their devices. While not every handset will be getting future updates, the HTC Legend from Virgin Mobile is confirmed to be getting 2.2 Froyo, which is expected to launch in mid-January. No word yet on the Bell version of the HTC Legend, but odds are that the update will be available at the same time.

Some exciting news for Android lovers has come out recently, with Google announcing the Google Nexus S and officially advertising Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread. The new OS version will be coming to the Google Nexus One within the next few weeks apparently, while it will first be found on the new Nexus S that is set for launch in the U.S. On December 16th.

OS 2.3 Gingerbread is said to be the fastest Android OS version to date, and provides a newly updated keyboard, some user interface refinements, and more. The Nexus S, Google newest developer phone set to launch in the U.S. on December 16th, is a powerful device that can easily rival the top smartphone in the market today. Featuring a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 4" (800x480) touch screen display, 16GB of internal memory, and 512MB of RAM, the internal specifications are powerful. The Nexus S doesn't stop there though, also featuring NFC (Near-field communications), a 5MP camera capable of recording HD video, Wi-Fi (b, g, n), and of course GPS and bluetooth connectivity. The Nexus S will be available on Thursday, December 16th in the United States for $529USD at Best Buy, though no word yet on if or when it will available in Canada.

Videotron has been stirring up some competition in the Quebec area, and was the first Canadian carrier to offer the Google Nexus One. Now they've dropped the "reduced price" of the device to $49.95, which previously stood at $99.95. Unfortunately the contract-free price remains the same, sitting at a steady $479.95 outright. In addition to the Nexus One price drop, we're also seeing the BlackBerry Pearl 3G go down to $0, and the Motorola XT720 drop to $99.95 "reduced price" What do you think about these recent price drops by Videotron? It's great to see all of the bargains starting to roll out for the holiday season!
