While multiple carriers, including Bell, Telus, Sasktel, and Fido already offer the HTC One S, Rogers is just getting set to launch the handset themselves. Thanks to the device being added to Future Shop?s website, we now know to expect it sometime in the coming days or weeks. According to the product page, it will be priced at $149.99 on a 3 year term, however outright pricing isn?t posted.

The One S features a 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features HTC Sense, as do all HTC Android handsets.

This is a bit of an odd scenario, one we don?t see too often. Sony recently announced their first device following their takeover of Sony Ericsson, the Xperia S, and clearly stated that it would be available globally in March. As such, it has been assumed that the device will land in Canada, though which carrier is unknown. Recently, Sony announced that the device has shipped globally, but that they?re leaving it up to carriers to announce specific availability.

Next, Sony posted an image on their Facebook page that made clear mention the device would be heading to Rogers. What most saw as a clear-cut indication turned out to be some kind of mistake, however. Sony removed the image from their Facebook page, and Rogers stated that they will not be selling the device directly, though it will work on their network. This has led to some back-and-forth online, with many people believing the handset will be sold unlocked in Sony Stores rather than through carriers. This would certainly be an interesting step for Sony to take, and if they?re going that route, it will be interesting to see the results.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (720 x 1280) display, and a 12 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It has a secondary front-facing 1.3 MP camera capable of 720p video recording, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with ICS planned for Q2 sometime. Similarly to most recent Xperia handsets, it features the Mobile BRAVIA Engine and connectivity including HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. It also comes with NFC capabilities, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.

All three big carriers are now offering LTE connectivity in major urban areas, with network expansion apparently in the works. When it comes to Android tablets with support for the ultra-fast network, Bell and Telus currently offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE, and Rogers has the HTC Jetstream.

The Tab 8.9 LTE is about to find its third home in Canada, however, with Rogers preparing to launch it in the near-future. Dummy units have arrived at some retail stores, though a specific launch date and pricing haven?t been confirmed as of yet. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE features an 8.9? (1280 x 800) touch screen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, a 3 MP rear-facing camera with 720p video capture, and 2 MP front-facing camera. It runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and comes in at 8.6 mm thin.

Interested? We?ll keep you posted as more information becomes available!

Information and screenshots have leaked from Telus, Rogers, Bell, and Sasktel, all confirming that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G is coming soon to their networks. Telus, Bell, and Sasktel all have information posted internally pointing to a September 8th launch. Rogers isn't specifying a date just yet, but has the suggested retail price set at $599.99.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G features a 10.1" (1280x800) touchscreen Gorilla Glass display, and runs on Android OS 3.1 Honeycomb.

It also has a front-facing 2MP camera, and offers up connectivity options including HSPA, Wi-FI (a/b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS.

Are you going to be picking one of these up, or will you wait for the LTE version to make its way to Canada?

It has been some time since RIM announced the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, but Virgin Mobile recently came forward reminding Canadians that they will be launching it soon. Posted on their Twitter profile, Virgin Mobile Canada stated "well be getting the bb 9900 super soon!"

No word on exactly when "super soon" is, but hopefully we'll see it launch in first part half of the summer. The Bold 9900 is a big step up for RIM and BlackBerry products, offering the familiar Bold shape and design, but also including a touchscreen. The 9900 has a 2.8" (640x480) touchscreen display, along with the standard trackpad and full QWERTY keyboard. It also features a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. Other features include 8GB of internal storage, HSPA connectivity reaching 14.4Mbps, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS, and even possibly NFC support in the future.

Though the hardware is seeing a variety of big improvements over current BlackBerry devices, the OS will also be updated. BlackBerry OS 7.0 won't be available for existing models, and will begin its life with the 9900/9930. It features a variety of improvements and additional features, including an updated browser with full HTML5 support and faster rendering, in addition to "BlackBerry Balance", a feature that helps keep work/home content separate from each other.

No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep you updated with any further information that is made available.
