There has been a lot of speculation and numerous rumours throughout the last few months and even years about a Nexus branded tablet, many of which have already proven to be inaccurate. The persisting rumour as of lately has been that Google, along with ASUS, will be released the tablet this summer. Now, even more speculation has been circulating in the last few days about the 7? tablet being scheduled for release sometime in July.

Other details are sparse, though the rumour points to a $200 or so price tag. According to the information many people claim to have been given, Google is planning on shipping a very large number of units to its various distribution channels, and with such an affordable price, this tablet could see some major success. Check back soon, as we?ll keep you updated on the rumours surrounding the possible Google/ASUS Nexus tablet!

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!

Over the last few years, RIM?s BlackBerry Bold line-up has been the reliable choice for many Canadians. Even though BlackBerry handsets haven?t seen the success of Android devices or the iPhone lately, many people still love their Bolds and aren?t willing to switch platforms. For those, Fido has launched the BlackBerry Bold 9790, making it available for $50 on a 3 year term, or $450 outright.

The Bold 9790 runs on BlackBerry 7 OS, and features a 2.45? (480 x 360) touch screen display and a 5MP camera with LED flash and video capture capabilities. It comes with 8 GB of internal memory, and is powered by a 1 GHz processor and 768 MB of RAM. Other notable features include its Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC capabilities.

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.

Sony Ericsson used be known for their Walkman and Cyber-shot handsets, and were met with considerable success as a manufacturer before smartphones became popular. Lately, they have been placing most of their focus on Android devices, and it looks like the specialties might re-appear, together.

Images were recently leaked online of a Sony Ericsson Xperia handset that is branded with "cyber-shot" text. There isn't any Android branding on the device, that's visible anyways, but the button layout strongly hints at that it will be an Android handset. While this one is definitely still just a rumour, it makes sense that Sony Ericsson would make a move like this. Hopefully we'll see this device, or something similar, launch very soon!
