Samsung?s Galaxy Note has been a popular device in Canada, and has proven to be one of the best available for those who don?t mind the large size. And while the Tab line-up of tablets has been important in the progress of Android tablets in the market, it?s no surprise that Samsung is pushing the ?Note? name further. Scheduled for release sometime in the coming months, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 should merge the two series together, and has the specifications required to be successful.

Originally, the Note 10.1 was demonstrated to include a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor and the S Pen stylus, but no room in the hardware itself to store it when not in use. Now, thanks to newly leaked information, we know that the processor has been upgraded to a quad-core Exynos processor with a powerful Mali-T604 graphics chip. Additionally, Samsung has incorporated an S Pen slot, a move that makes a lot of sense. Other features include its 10.1? (800 x 1280) touch screen display and 3.15 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. The Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, comes with 1 GB of RAM, and is set to be a Wi-Fi only tablet.

While nothing has been confirmed regarding a Canadian launch, Samsung has been relatively good about getting their devices to Canada recently, so we should see the device shortly after the United States does. Pricing is still unknown as well, but we?ll keep you updated on any further information throughout the coming weeks and months!

Research in Motion officially announced their intentions to launch an HSPA+ and LTE equipped PlayBook around this time last year, but nothing has made an appearance as of yet. Today, however, some good news surfaced ? The FCC (United States) has officially approved the device, which brings us one step closer to its release. To top it off, leaked information that has been floating around the internet recently points to Bell intending for an ?early April? launch, though they clearly state that launch dates are subject to change.

Rumoured features and specifications for the HSPA/LTE enabled PlayBook include a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and NFC capabilities. Unfortunately, further details are currently unavailable, and rumours are even proving sparse. We?ll keep you updated on any new information as it becomes available!

HTC has recently come forward to reveal two new Windows Phone Mango handsets, the Titan and the Radar. As for the OS itself, recently leaked information states that Mango has been delayed until September 15th at the earliest, and could take several weeks more for individual carriers to release it.

The HTC Titan features a 4.7" (800x480) Super LCD touchscreen display, and is powered by a single-core 1.5GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It has an 8MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video capture, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (b/g/n), bluetooth, and GPS.

The HTC Radar will likely come in on the more affordable side, with comparably modest features including its 3.8" (800x400) LCD touchscreen display, and single-core 1GHz processor. It also has 512MB of RAM, and offers up a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD recording, with a VGA front-facing camera. Connectivity options include WI-FI (b/g/n), bluetooth, and GPS as well.

Rogers has always prided themselves on being at the forefront of innovation and new technology in the Canadian mobile industry, and are looking to solidify that reputation this year.
