This is a bit of an odd scenario, one we don?t see too often. Sony recently announced their first device following their takeover of Sony Ericsson, the Xperia S, and clearly stated that it would be available globally in March. As such, it has been assumed that the device will land in Canada, though which carrier is unknown. Recently, Sony announced that the device has shipped globally, but that they?re leaving it up to carriers to announce specific availability.

Next, Sony posted an image on their Facebook page that made clear mention the device would be heading to Rogers. What most saw as a clear-cut indication turned out to be some kind of mistake, however. Sony removed the image from their Facebook page, and Rogers stated that they will not be selling the device directly, though it will work on their network. This has led to some back-and-forth online, with many people believing the handset will be sold unlocked in Sony Stores rather than through carriers. This would certainly be an interesting step for Sony to take, and if they?re going that route, it will be interesting to see the results.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (720 x 1280) display, and a 12 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It has a secondary front-facing 1.3 MP camera capable of 720p video recording, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with ICS planned for Q2 sometime. Similarly to most recent Xperia handsets, it features the Mobile BRAVIA Engine and connectivity including HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. It also comes with NFC capabilities, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.

Research in Motion has recently recalled approximately 1000 BlackBerry PlayBooks. According to an official statement from RIM, the recall is due to an issue with some PlayBooks being "unable to properly load software upon initial set-up". The statement also points out that many of the affected devices are still in the distribution channels and haven't reached customers, so hopefully few people will be impacted.

While this recall certainly can't help RIM and the PlayBook's success, it is a fairly small number in comparison to the number of units sold. Users who do experience the described issue are encouraged to contact RIM to determine next steps.

Rogers is getting set to launch another Android device, and are going with another Acer model as a follow up to the Liquid E. The Liquid MT, which is set to launch tomorrow, February 15th, features a 3.6" (480x800) touchscreen display, 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, and an 800MHz processor. Running on Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, the Liquid MT will be Rogers' first handset capable of download speeds up to 14.4Mbps. Probably the best thing about the Acer Liquid MT is the price at which it's being sold, with 3-year pricing coming in at $49.99, while contract-free pricing is set to be a low $399.99.

When Videotron announced their 3G network a few months back, one of the biggest parts of the announcement for gadget and device lovers was that they would be carrying the Google Nexus One. Unfortunately the device was declared sold-out within just a few days of the launch, however Videotron has recently announced that it is back in stock! As of Tuesday of this week, Videotron's Nexus One stock has been replenished, and most retail outlets should have handsets available. The Nexus One is available from Videotron for $99.95 ("reduced price"), or $479.95 contract-free.

The HTC Desire has been one of Telus' most successful Android handsets, so it didn't come as much of a surprise when it was marked as sold-out. Thankfully, the Desire is back in stock, though limited quantities are available, and according to the website, shipping may take up to 10 days. If you're looking to pick up the Desire, make sure to grab one soon, as a device this powerful is likely to sell out once again!

Remember, the Desire is set to get an upgrade to Android 2.2 sometime this month, and at just $79.99 on a 3 year term, or $449.99 outright, this is definitely one to look at!

Telus will begin pre-loading their BlackBerry devices with the Yellow Pages application, which helps users find individuals or business by category, name, location, and more. The application will come pre-installed on all BlackBerry handsets sold from now on, and Telus customers will also get access to a special "concierge" service, which will connect you to a Telus 411 agent who can provide additional information such as directions and accommodations available in the area.

Telus recently sold out of the HTC Desire - one of the most feature-packed, anticipated Android devices to hit the Canadian market, and are now offering up a $50 mail-in rebate for customers "who had to wait". Though there are no details available as to exactly what Telus deems as "waiting", it seems those who visit a retail location between August 20th - October 20th and have to wait due to stock being sold out will receive a coupon to offset the inconvenience of waiting for the device stock to replenish. With the offer expiring October 20th, we can be fairly certain that stock will be replaced by that date at the latest, so if you're looking to pick up a Desire any time soon, visit a retail Telus outlet to see if you might be able to take advantage of the $50 rebate.

Rogers is starting a test project where wireless devices like phones and high speed rocket sticks will be sold in Shoppers Drug Mart location across the country. As a bonus for users who sign up at a Shoppers location, they will receive 50 000 Shoppers Optimum Bonus Points, a value of $85 apparently. This move follows many other carriers in expanding their distribution channels to additional retail stores, with Public Mobile possibly being the most recent having signed a deal with Gateway Newstands.
