A couple short weeks ago, we let you know that Sony had announced that they were shipping the Xperia S globally, but nothing specific was confirmed for Canada. Now, Sony has come forward with a press release stating that the Android device will be available on April 17th in limited quantities, exclusively from the Sony Store. As for pricing and carrier availability, they make mention that it is compatible with the Rogers network, and later stated that it would be available for $99.99 on a 3 year term through Rogers. Whether Sony will later allow Rogers to sell the handset or not hasn?t been revealed as of yet, and no mention of other carriers seeing the device in the future was made either.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (1280 x 720) Reality Display with the Mobile BRAVIA Engine, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. It comes with a 12 MP rear-facing camera with Sony Exmor R for mobile technology, which is capable or recording 1080p video. It also has a front-facing camera capable of 720p video capture, and offers up NFC connectivity, along with the regular connectivity support such as HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. It will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, however it?s apparently set for an ICS upgrade in the coming months.

Telus has surprisingly kept its Mike network active, and have actually launched another device for users of the push-to-talk service. The Motorola i420 is now available for $249.99 contract-free, and offers the Direct Connect feature that made the network, and compatible devices popular years ago. It features a 1.79" (128x160) display, flip form factor, and a number of basic features including bluetooth, GPS, and a VGA camera. While this may not serve as much news for regular consumers, the fact that Telus isn't letting up on this network should be a good indication for business owners and managers that they can continue to rely on it for direct (and instant) communication between its members.

While BlackBerry App World may lack in numbers compared to Apple's App Store and Android Market, most who choose BlackBerry still make use of it regularly. Fortunately for Telus customers, they can now bill their App World purchases to their monthly Telus bill, making it convenient to get, and pay for apps, games, themes, and more. No word yet on when the other carriers will begin supporting this feature, but hopefully it will come soon.
