Bell recently launched the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE, and now Sasktel is advertising it on their site. Initially they had it labelled as ?Coming soon?, however that label has now disappeared, indicating that it?s now available from the Saskatchewan carrier. Users will be able to benefit from the improved resolution, processor and overall enhancements over the standard Galaxy S II, however LTE connectivity won?t be coming until this fall.

If you?re in the market for a new Android handset and can?t wait for the Galaxy S III, be sure to check out the Galaxy S II HD LTE from Sasktel. It is available now for $129.99 on a 3 year term, or $569.99 monthly.

We let you know some time ago that Bell was preparing to launch the super-affordable HTC Wildfire S, and followed up shortly with news that Virgin would also release it. Bell was first up to make the Android 2.3 powered handset available, and now we've received word that the Virgin launch is just around the corner.

The Wildfire S features a 3.2" (320x480) touchscreen Gorilla Glass display, and is powered by a 600MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It also features a 5MP camera with LED flash and VGA video capture, and comes with 512MB of ROM storage for applications and setting data. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS, and supports HSPA data speeds reaching a maximum of 7.2 Mbps.

The HTC Wildfire S is available now from Bell for $0 on a 3 year term (originally $29.95, but placed on sale already!), and $249.95 contract-free. Virgin Mobile will be offering it up any day now for $29.99 on a 3 year term or using the SuperTab, and outright pricing is consistent with Bell's, coming in at $249.99. Saskatchewan residents can also expect to get their hands on the device via Sasktel, though details are much more scarce regarding their launch.

According to a recent release from Sasktel, they aren't just expanding their current 21Mbps network, but also working to launch a 42Mbps 4G network in Regina and Saskatoon this summer. No word yet on which devices might be available offering support for that speed, but it will likely start with a mobile internet stick.

Along with that announcement, Sasktel stated that by the end of 2011, their coverage will be available to 98% of Saskatchewan's population. It is already at 96%, according to the carrier.

It's certainly nice to see network upgrades and announcements, but one can't help but wonder their status regarding LTE deployment. With Bell and Rogers racing to launch their true 4G networks in a few major cities, we can only assume that's the future.

The HTC Incredible S is available now from Sasktel for $100 on a 3 year contract, or $520 outright.

Sasktel has been making the news quite a bit since they launched their 3G network several months back, and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down. According to several statements made by the Saskatchewan carrier, they will soon be launching 3 new devices - the HTC Incredible S, the iPhone 4, and the Samsung Galaxy 550.

The HTC Incredible S, which is expected to launch "sometime in April" features a 4" (480x800) touchscreen display, 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video capture, along with a secondary 1.3MP front-facing camera. Powered by a 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, the Incredible S comes with 1.1GB of internal storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and the HTC Incredible S will run Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, along with HTC Sense UI 3.0. Virgin Mobile, and possibly Bell, are also expected to launch the Incredible S.

Next up is the Samsung Galaxy 550, which is also expected sometime in April. The Galaxy 550 runs on Android Eclair 2.1. Beyond that, there aren't many details available regarding this upcoming Android device, but it looks like it will be a mid-range handset. No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep an eye out for more details!

Lastly, comes the iPhone 4. Sasktel has put up a registration page for those interested in receiving updates regarding the launch of the popular device on Sasktel. The release date is still unknown, but it's definitely a good sign that they have implemented a registration page. Hopefully we'll see the iPhone 4 launch before Apple's next generation of mobile device is announced, which will likely happen sometime this summer.

Overall, great job from Sasktel expanding their line-up to include several options for Saskatchewan residents!

Competition has been roaring in Canada when it comes to unlimited plans and offerings, and most carriers are doing their part by introducing affordable packages. Virgin Mobile is certainly no exception, as they have recently launched new $35 and $45 Unlimited plans. The $35 Unlimited City Calling Plan is available only for CDMA handsets, and only in major cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. It offers up unlimited local calling, along with unlimited Canadian, U.S., and international text messaging.

The $45 Unlimited Calling Plan is available for all handsets and in all locations (except Manitoba and Saskatchewan), and offers up unlimited local calling, unlimited Canadian, U.S., and international text messaging, along with call display. Additionally, any data or long-distance packages are eligible to be added on to the $45 plan, so it's a great starting point for customers looking to build a personalized solution. Both of these packages are officially available now, so get in contact with Virgin Mobile if you're interested!
