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.

We have been keeping you up to date on all of the news about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate 4G, and are happy to report that pricing has been revealed. An internal document which was recently leaked online shows pricing on a 3 year contract to be $99.99, while outright purchases are set to cost $529.99.

The handset itself is practically identical to the 3G version, but will offer users maximum download speeds of up to 21Mbps. The document also re-confirms the May 12th launch date, which we heard about officially last week.

Rogers is getting set to launch their Early Hardware Upgrade Program in just under a week, on Thursday, May 5th. The program, which will allow customers to upgrade to a new device early for an additional fee, is very similar to Telus' early upgrade process. Here's how it works:

Customers who wish to upgrade early will pay $10-$20 for each month remaining until they would officially be eligible, in addition to the standard upgrade cost of the device. Exactly how much you pay for each remaining month depends on what type of device you currently have, and Rogers breaks them down into three categories; 1) voice or quick messaging devices, 2) feature devices, tablets, and smartphones, and 3) premium devices (including iPhone and BlackBerry Torch). Those with voice/QMD handsets will be charged $10 for each remaining month, while smartphone/tablet users will pay $15, and premium device users will pay $20 for each remaining month. If the contract-free price for the device comes in lower than the early upgrade costs, you will pay the lesser of the two.

For example, if you have a BlackBerry Bold 9700 and have had it for 18 months, you would pay $15 (early upgrade charge) x 6 (months remaining until standard 24-month eligibility), in addition to the normal 3-year price of the device you're upgrading to. So, you would pay $90 + the upgrade cost of the device.

One more detail was revealed in recently leaked screenshots, stating "we are also changing the standard HUP wait period, which will now vary from 18-30 months depending on the customer's current device." While the early upgrade program comes as great news, this extra little bit is vague and could be a bad thing for some people. Rogers currently has a 2 year waiting period for upgrade eligibility, so this means some people will have to wait an extra 6 months, or at least pay 6 months more of early upgrade costs. Others may benefit from it however, reaching eligibility 6 months earlier than they currently would. We'll be sure to let you know once more details become available.

Throughout the last few days, both Bell and Rogers Samsung Galaxy Tab pricing seems to have been revealed, with Bell coming in at the $649.95 mark, and Rogers internal systems listing it at $674.99 outright. Especially with Rogers pricing, bare in mind that these numbers could change before launch, but so far it seems that what Canadians are looking at for the Android powered tablet. The Bell Galaxy Tab is expected to ship on November 16th, so hopefully we'll see both carriers stocked up shortly afterwards.

Coming in both 16GB and 32GB models, the Tab runs on Android 2.2 Froyo featuring TouchWiz UI and also comes with a 3.15MP camera with LED flash, and a front-facing 1.3MP camera.
