Summer is coming, and with it comes WWDC and all kinds of announcements from Apple. This June, Apple says they're going to "unveil the future of iOS", which has many analysts sharing their thoughts. One of the most common rumours, with information apparently coming from individuals with knowledge of the company's supply chain, points to a September ship date for the iPhone 5.

Other speculation points to the new iPhone model having an edge-to-edge screen, but otherwise similar to the iPhone 4 physically. It will also come with an 8MP camera according to the information, and should have a much stronger A5 processor.

Who knows if this will prove to be true, or what else Apple has in store for us regarding iOS' future. Hopefully we'll see some truly innovative technology!

HTC has just announced two new Android devices that will be hitting the European and Asian markets in Q2 2011, and the U.S. later in the year. The HTC ChaCha and Salsa both feature dedicated Facebook buttons, allowing users to access the popular social networking site with a single click of the button. It will also allow for speedy status updates, simple sharing, and quick photo uploads. No word yet on if or when these handsets will arrive in Canada, but we should see them around the same time that the U.S. does.

The ChaCha features a physical QWERTY keyboard located under the 2.6" (480x320) display, along with a 5MP camera with LED flash, and a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The Salsa has similar specifications, but has a larger touchscreen (3.4") and lacks the physical keyboard. Both devices will launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will be powered by 600MHz proccessors.

We recently let you know that Videotron would be launching their 3G+ network today, and we've got all of the information rounded up in one place to keep you updated!

During the press conference, Videotron announced their 4 types of price plans available to customers on the new network, in addition to four handsets that are available to Quebec residents should they choose to go with Videotron for their mobile service. Shortly afterwards, the website was updated to include the remaining devices. The price plans now available are:

Zone Plans - Videotron offers the largest urban zones in Quebec, and is offering up a couple tiers of plans for those located in either Montreal or Quebec city. The options include an unlimited in-zone calling option for just over $30/month, or an unlimited cross-Canada calling package for about $50/monthly. Both include SMS, MMS, and e-mail, in addition to 50MB of data usage.

Unlimited Evenings & Weekends - For $24.95, users can get 100 anytime minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends, and unlimited SMS, MMS, and e-mail

Anytime Plans - 50 anytime minutes starting at approximately $15/month

Sharing Plans - Videotron is also offering up sharing plans, starting at just $36.95 for two lines. This option allows the users to share a minimum of 200 anytime minutes, and unlimited evenings and weekends.

Videotron will be eventually be launching twelve 3G+ compatible devices, and every handset supports Videotron's mobile content including 28 on-demand channels, and remote PVR programming. Among the devices now available are:

HTC/Google Nexus One - Running on Android 2.2 Froyo, this is the first handset available in Canada running on the latest version of the Android OS. This device features a 3.7" (480x800) AMOLED display, 5MP camera with LED flash, a 1GHz processor, and 512MB of RAM/ROM. This device has never been offered through a carrier in Canada before, so Videotron should see a large number of customers jump on-board for this handset.

Garmin Nuvifone A50 - The second of the Android handsets now available from Videotron, the Nuvifone A50 features a 3.5" (320x480) touch screen, a 3MP camera, and of course GPS navigation. Along with Wi-Fi support, this handset is perfect for those looking for highly functional GPS capabilities.

Motorola XT720 - The Motorola XT720 is also an Android powered device, featuring a 3.7" (480x854) touch screen, 8MP camera with flash, 720p HD video capture, and an HDMI out port. This handset is powered by a 720MHz processor, and has 512MB ROM/256MB RAM.

Huawei U3200 - This device features a 2.2" (240x320) display, 3.2MP camera, and is a slider handset with a standard numeric keypad.

Other devices - BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Pearl 9100, Samsung Gravity 2, HuaweiU7519, Nokia 5230, and the Huawei E1381 Mobile Internet key.

Other details covered in the press conference include the removal of 2 and 3 year contracts, their dynamic bandwidth allocation, and a few plans for the future regarding the network technology. Among these plans include dual-channel HSPA technology that will bring their maximum download speed from 21Mbps, up to 42Mbps. They are also offering an unconditional 30 day money-back guarantee on all handset purchases/service agreements.

All around, it looks like Videotron has done a decent job of offering choices beyond those of other carriers. Being the first carrier to officially offer a device running Android 2.2, and offering a large selection of handsets and services, it looks like they've ensured some healthy competition in Quebec!
