They have also released their first handset specifically for use on the network ? the Sonim XP5520 BOLT. The BOLT is an incredibly durable device that ?goes well beyond MIL-SPEC ruggedness? and is water proof, dust proof, and shock proof. It can withstand drops from 2 meters onto concrete and is scratch and pressure resistant as well, and has the warranty to back it up. Sonim offers up a 3-year comprehensive warranty to those who purchase the unit.

Research in Motion officially announced their intentions to launch an HSPA+ and LTE equipped PlayBook around this time last year, but nothing has made an appearance as of yet. Today, however, some good news surfaced ? The FCC (United States) has officially approved the device, which brings us one step closer to its release. To top it off, leaked information that has been floating around the internet recently points to Bell intending for an ?early April? launch, though they clearly state that launch dates are subject to change.

Rumoured features and specifications for the HSPA/LTE enabled PlayBook include a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and NFC capabilities. Unfortunately, further details are currently unavailable, and rumours are even proving sparse. We?ll keep you updated on any new information as it becomes available!

The Tablet S has been confirmed to be $500 for the 16GB model, or $600 for the 32GB version. Additionally, Sony confirmed that it will be launching in September, though an exact date wasn't provided.

The Sony Tablet S features a 9.4" (1280x800) touchscreen display, and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. It's PlayStation certified, and is advertised to be usable as a TV remote as well. Running on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the Tablet S will have a lot of competition, but should see its fair share of sales.

A little while back, we saw Videotron launch a $30/6GB data add-on, and it didn't take long for a variety of other carriers to follow suit in the province. Bell and Virgin Mobile began offering their Quebec subscribers the same package, and Telus also did the same. Now, Rogers is responding to the competition, and has also made their own $30/6GB add-on available for Quebec customers. Theirs, like the others, is available for a "limited time", and speculation points to a July 31st expiry date. It includes 6GB of data usage and unlimited Social Networking, and requires you to renew on a new 3 year term.
