Motorola has sent out a press release officially announcing that the MOTOLUXE is heading to Canada, with a scheduled Q2 release. This new Android handset from Motorola features a new user-interface that ?learns? about your use and tailors certain parts of your home screen to your behaviour. For instance, the contacts you interact with most often will have larger icons than the rest on your home screen, and the ?Activity Graph? will display your most used applications. The device also has a multi-coloured LED indicator, something BlackBerry handsets (with the use of 3rd party apps for advanced customization) have had for some time.

Other features include its 4? (480 x 854)) touch screen display, and 8 MP camera with flash and HD video capture. It has an 800 MHz processor, 1 GB of internal storage, and 512 MB of RAM. The current version of the handset available outside of Canada runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so we?ll probably see this at launch as well.

Pricing and carrier availability are currently unconfirmed, though rumours around the internet point to Bell and Virgin Mobile picking this device up. With the modest specifications and unique, software-oriented approach, we should see the Motorola MOTOLUXE on the lower end of the pricing spectrum.

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.

Back in February, HTC announced the Flyer, their first android tablet. The Flyer has a 7" (1024x600) touchscreen display, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch, though it will eventually see Honeycomb. It's powered by a 1.5GHz processor, and will run HTC's latest version of Sense specifically designed for tablets. One of the features that makes the Flyer stand out is the Scribe technology, which aims to repopularize stylus use.

The HTC Flyer was recently added to HTCSense.com's Canadian section, on the device registration page. Hopefully the addition of the device means a near-future launch. With the original announcement stating that the Flyer would be available globally in Q2, we should see this new tablet available sometime this summer.

We let you know several months back that the Xperia X10 from Sony Ericsson had reached the end of the line in regards to OS updates. Stuck at 2.1 Eclair (without multitouch), many Canadians were outraged. Luckily, Sony Ericsson listened to their customers, and have decided to bring Gingerbread 2.3 to the device. Expected sometime in late Q2 or early Q3, the update will lighten Sony Ericsson's presence in the Android OS, and bring with it the many performance improvements that Gingerbread has to offer.

According to Sony Ericsson, the ability to bring Gingerbread to the X10 is newly realized, and comes with their work on the upcoming Arc and Play devices. Great news for X10 owners, now let's just hope that Rogers cooperates and can get the update to Canadians in a timely manner!

Canadians who own any of the Desire series handsets have received good news recently, with an HTC spokesperson announcing that Android 2.3 Gingerbread would be coming for the devices sometime in Q2 of this year. The update, which will have to be reviewed by Bell and Telus internally before actually being pushed out, will be available for the Desire, Desire Z, and Desire HD. Hopefully the review process won't take long and the update will be available for users in a timely manner, but with carriers improving the speed at which new OS' are available as of late, we shouldn't see too much of a delay.

HTC has just announced two new Android devices that will be hitting the European and Asian markets in Q2 2011, and the U.S. later in the year. The HTC ChaCha and Salsa both feature dedicated Facebook buttons, allowing users to access the popular social networking site with a single click of the button. It will also allow for speedy status updates, simple sharing, and quick photo uploads. No word yet on if or when these handsets will arrive in Canada, but we should see them around the same time that the U.S. does.

The ChaCha features a physical QWERTY keyboard located under the 2.6" (480x320) display, along with a 5MP camera with LED flash, and a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The Salsa has similar specifications, but has a larger touchscreen (3.4") and lacks the physical keyboard. Both devices will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will be powered by 600MHz proccessors.

Today Rogers introduced a new Social Unlimited Price Plan, which will cost $50 for 200 daytime voice minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends, unlimited messaging, unlimited social networking, and 500MB of data. This improves on their current $50 voice and data plan which does not include unlimited social networking.

This new price plan will be available exclusively to Rogers Social View customers, meaning anybody using the HTC Magic, LG Eve, Sony Xperia X10, or the upcoming Motorola Quench.

Social View is Roger's name for amalgamated social timelines that pull information from your e-mail clients, text and picture/video messages, Twitter, and Facebook. Examples of these on the Rogers network include HTC's Sense UI, the Xperia X10's Timescape, or the upcoming Quench's MOTOBLUR.

Rogers has updated their homepage with a simple advertisement for "Social View". It isn't clear exactly what Social View is, but by the looks of things it serves to meet various social needs including text messaging, MMS, e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter at the very least. It will be released for Android handsets, although no word if it will come to existing devices, or just future products.

In the advertisement, Rogers let slip that we can expect the Motorola QUENCH (also known as the CLIQ XT MB501) in the near-future. The 4th phone from the front (just before the white X10) is indeed, the QUENCH.

The new device by Motorola features a 3.1" (320x480) touch screen, accelerometer, 512MB ROM, and a 5MP camera. It supports HSPA, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and is expandable up to 32GB via microSD. The device should come with Android OS 1.5 with MOTOBLUR, and will likely feature Rogers' new Social View.
