Information and screenshots have leaked from Telus, Rogers, Bell, and Sasktel, all confirming that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G is coming soon to their networks. Telus, Bell, and Sasktel all have information posted internally pointing to a September 8th launch. Rogers isn't specifying a date just yet, but has the suggested retail price set at $599.99.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G features a 10.1" (1280x800) touchscreen Gorilla Glass display, and runs on Android OS 3.1 Honeycomb. It is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, and features a 3.15MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording. It also has a front-facing 2MP camera, and offers up connectivity options including HSPA, Wi-FI (a/b/g/n, hotspot), bluetooth, and GPS.

Are you going to be picking one of these up, or will you wait for the LTE version to make its way to Canada?

KOODO Mobile has already included a variety of Android handsets in their line-up, but one design-type we don't see nearly enough anymore with smartphones are QWERTY handsets. The LG Optimus Chat, which according to screenshots leaked online will be the next Android device for KOODO, has a horizontally sliding keyboard for easy typing. It features a 2.8" (320x480) touchscreen display, and a 3.15MP camera. It runs on Android 2.2 Froyo and offers up Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS support.

According to recently leaked information, we know Bell is getting set to launch the HTC Wildfire S, for just $249.95 contract-free.

No word yet on an exact launch date, but rumours are pointing to very early June. Pricing is also unknown at this time, however speculation points to it coming in similar to Bell's. We'll be sure to keep you updated as any further details emerge!

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.

According to screenshots recently leaked online, Rogers is getting set to launch an early upgrade option. Currently customers have to wait 24 months to upgrade their hardware, which is lengthy with today's rapid development in technology. Customers will be able to upgrade before the 24 month period has passed, but would be subject to a fee. There's no confirmation as of yet on how much the early upgrade fee will be, but we're guessing it's somewhere between $10-$20 for each remaining month before standard elgiibility.

We'll be sure to let you know once more information is made available.

We recently let you know that Virgin Mobile was rumoured to be launching the HTC Incredible S, and that Sasktel had confirmed that the high-end Android handset would coming to their network. Now, we have confirmation that Bell and Virgin will be launching the device, with an expected release date of April 4th. The information comes way of leaked screenshots, and though 3-year pricing hasn't been made available yet, we are expecting contract-free pricing to come in around $499.95.

The HTC Incredible S features a 4" (480x800) S-LCD touchscreen display, an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, along with a 1.3MP front-facing camera. Powered by a 1GHz Scorpion processor and 768MB of RAM, the Incredible S has 1.1GB of internal memory, and is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and users will be able to get HSPA download speeds up to 14.4Mbps using their cellular data plan. Overall, the HTC Incredible S is shaping up well, and should make a great addition to Sasktel, Virgin, and Bell's line-ups.

We recently let you know that the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro was headed for Canada, and we can now confirm that Rogers will be carrying the Symbian based device.

According to recently leaked internal screenshots, Bell will be launching the BlackBerry Bold 9780 refresh device on November 2nd, though no official public announcement has been made as of yet. Virgin Mobile was apparently set to launch the device on October 21st, but since the website hasn't been updated as of yet, we're assuming the date has been pushed back at least a little bit. It would be surprising, however, if Virgin did launch the Bold refresh device a little bit sooner than parent-company Bell, as we saw this happen with the HTC Legend recently. To recap on the Bold 9780's specifications, it will launch running BlackBerry 6 OS, and comes with a 5MP camera, though nearly all other aspects are basically identical to the Bold 9700 BlackBerry users have come to know and love.

It will also support your standard connectivity options including Wi-Fi, GPS, and bluetooth, and is shaping up to be a great device at a reasonable price.
