Sasktel has launched their first Windows Phone 7 device, choosing to go with the LG Optimus Quantum. The Quantum features a 3.5" (480x800) touchscreen display, 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, and a full QWERTY keyboard. Powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB of onboard storage, this device is among the best based on specifications, so it's great to see it land at Sasktel. The LG Optimus Quantum is available now from the Saskatchewan carrier for $50 on a 3 year term, or $565 contract-free.

Bell is trying to get rid of a few older devices to make room for all of their newer handsets, and are offering up some pretty low contract-free prices on two devices specifically. The Motorola Dext and the Palm Pre have both been dropped down to a low $149.95 contract-free price.

The Motorola Dext runs on Android 1.5 (with no further upgrades coming), and features MOTOBLUR, along with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 5MP camera, and Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. It comes with a 2GB microSD card, but can hold up to 32GB for additional memory.

The Palm Pre is a CDMA device that runs on webOS, and it features a 3.1" (320x480) touch screen display, slide out QWERTY keyboard, and a 3MP camera, along with Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS. It also comes with 8GB of internal memory, and has a 3.5 mm headset jack.

They have also dropped the price of 3 of their devices by $75 each if purchased on a 3 year term, offering up the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant for $24.95, the HTC Desire Z for $4.95, and the LG Quantum for free. These are some pretty great prices if you're willing to sign a 3 year contract, but are only available until December 31st.

According to a recent blog post from Rogers, Microsoft's Mike O'Sullivan stated that Canadians would soon be seeing new form factors for Windows Phone 7 devices, including some new handsets with full hardware QWERTY keyboards. It'll be nice to see more devices added to this category that run on Windows Phone 7, as so far the only handset meeting this criteria is LG Optimus Quantum. Could this mean we'll see HTC 7 Pro come to Canada? Hopefully, but only time will tell!

Today, Rogers is officially launching its new 3G network in Canada. Rogers will offer its Vision service, video telephony, in 22 cities in Canada. This means that Rogers will cover with its network of the third generation 60% of Canada. "This major expansion solidifies Rogers' position as Canada's fastest and most advanced wireless network," said John Boynton, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless. "Rogers Vision is a quantum leap forward in wireless communications and has revolutionized the way customers access information and entertainment on-the-go both at home and abroad." No reduction in mobile data packages are scheduled from Rogers, but the fact that the third generation could come to be available from Rogers is a major point for Canada. Finally, remember that the service of Video Vision is available only in Canada at the moment, because no American operator, according to Rogers, offers this service at this time. The cities that will now be covered by HSDPA Rogers are: Greater Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria, Whistler, Calgary, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Ottawa/Gatineau, Kingston, Sudbury, Barrie, London, Kitchener/Waterloo, Guelph, Windsor, Greater Montreal, Quebec City, Chicoutimi and Trois-Rivi?res. Rogers Vision is already available in the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton/St. Catharines, Burlington/Oakville.
