We've seen multiple carriers sign distribution deals with various outlets, and now Mobilicity has joined in. Mobilicity has signed with their first major distribution partner, 7-Eleven, and products will be available at 150 stores throughout Toronto, Vancouver, and Edmonton before the end of the year. Mobilicity has maintained a focus on simplicity and convenience, and state that the availability of their products at 7-Eleven locations "will only add to that convenient customer experience". With their launch in 3 more cities, and this new distribution deal, Mobilicity should see some growth in the near-future.

New entrant Mobilicity has just launched their network in two more major cities today, Edmonton and Vancouver, and has officially confirmed the Ottawa launch will take place tomorrow. Along with the launch comes 100 retail outlets throughout Vancouver, and 20 locations in both Edmonton and Ottawa. This makes 5 cities for Mobilicity and should help them grow!

In addition to the new network launches, Mobilicity has also slimmed down their price plan line-up to just 3 packages. None of the price plans come with data, so customers who wish to get data access will have to subscribe to the new $10 data add-on. The 3 new price plans are:

$25/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., and Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling.

$35/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, and Province Wide Long Distance.

$45/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, Province Wide Long Distance, Canadian Long Distance, U.S. Long Distance, and Global Text Messaging.

When Videotron announced their 3G network a few months back, one of the biggest parts of the announcement for gadget and device lovers was that they would be carrying the Google Nexus One. Unfortunately the device was declared sold-out within just a few days of the launch, however Videotron has recently announced that it is back in stock! As of Tuesday of this week, Videotron's Nexus One stock has been replenished, and most retail outlets should have handsets available. The Nexus One is available from Videotron for $99.95 ("reduced price"), or $479.95 contract-free.

It has certainly been a long and impatient wait for Canadians looking to get their hands on a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate through Rogers, but it seems as though the time has finally come. As of yesterday, the Captivate is officially available for $179.99 on a 3 year term, or $549.99 contract-free, though inventory is apparently limited, so it will likely sell out fast. The Captivate features a 4" (480x800) super AMOLED touch screen display, along with a 1GHz processor, 5MP camera capable of recording 720p video, and 16GB of onboard memory. Additionally, the device support Wi-Fi connectivity to help users stay connected, and apparently comes with Swype installed right out of the box. The Samsung Galaxy S Captivate ships running Android OS 2.1, though we've recently gotten word that v2.2 will be available by "early 2011" at the latest. If you're looking to pick one of these up, it's best to act quickly, as odds are it will sell out very fast - so head to your local Rogers retail outlet or call Customer Care now!

Many carriers have been exploring distribution options as of lately, looking to expand the retail outlets in which they can sell their products and services, and the latest to join in the effort is WIND Mobile. Now offering 4 of their devices in London Drugs locations in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver, WIND Mobile will surely reach a wider audience, adding to BlockBuster and Valu Mobile as distribution partners. The devices available through London Drugs include the Huawei 1250, Huawei 8100, Nokia 5230 (black), and the Samsung Gravity 2(blue). Apparently 30 London Drugs locations are on board and offering these devices, spanning through the 3 cities listed above.

Mobilicity has recently confirmed via Twitter that their Edmonton and Vancouver networks will be launched sometime in November, which is great news for residents of either of these cities looking to save big on their monthly costs and avoid contracts. No word on exact launch dates, though they did confirm that Edmonton will be getting 40 retail outlets in total (consisting of outlets, stands, etc). With any luck, we'll see these cities launch before November 7th when the Friends & Family promotion comes to an end, or at the very least see some launch-specific promos released for new customers in these areas.

Edmonton and Vancouver residents - will you be signing up with Mobilicity at launch?

Chatr, the newest discount brand owned by Rogers, quietly launched in Montreal about a week ago. There are a number of retail outlets for those interested to visit, including Futureshop, Wireless Wave, Zellers, and an official Chatr store located at 705 Rue Ste Catherine O. With any luck, the increased competition in Montreal will result in even cheaper plans and devices, and it seems Chatr is looking to get that started by putting their entire device line-up on sale. Montreal residents, are you thinking about signing up with Chatr?

Public Mobile has recently gone live with their new distribution channel - Gateway Newsstands. In Toronto, there are currently 60 locations being co-branded with Public Mobile, mostly in TTC stations, GO stations, and some major office buildings. Apparently this number will increase to 120 by January, and will provide over a million people each day with access to their services/outlets. This is a great effort on Public Mobile's part, and hopefully it will be successful for them.

Telus recently sold out of the HTC Desire - one of the most feature-packed, anticipated Android devices to hit the Canadian market, and are now offering up a $50 mail-in rebate for customers "who had to wait". Though there are no details available as to exactly what Telus deems as "waiting", it seems those who visit a retail location between August 20th - October 20th and have to wait due to stock being sold out will receive a coupon to offset the inconvenience of waiting for the device stock to replenish. With the offer expiring October 20th, we can be fairly certain that stock will be replaced by that date at the latest, so if you're looking to pick up a Desire any time soon, visit a retail Telus outlet to see if you might be able to take advantage of the $50 rebate.

RIM and BlackBerry handsets have been getting a lot of attention lately, especially with the release of the Torch 9800 coming up next month and the Curve and Pearl 3G models that have recently launched, and now it looks like WIND Mobile are looking to join in the fun. Though they've been advertising the Pearl 9100 3G for some time now as "Coming Soon", rumour has it that the device will be arriving in retail outlets in the next few days, with a price point of just $320. If this rumour proves true, this will be great news for WIND customers looking to pick up the device, as it would be the lowest outright pricing in Canada for the device.
