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!

Telus confirmed recently that they will be launching the HTC Surround 7 and LG Optimus 7 on November 8th, which doesn't come as much of a surprise since it was announced early on that Canada would get a simultaneous launch to the U.S. for many Windows Phone 7 devices, but still nice to get confirmation. The great news coming out of the press release, however, is the pricing, which is set at $99 for either device on a 3 year term (voice + data over $50/month). If you're looking to be one of the first in Canada to have a Windows Phone 7 device, make sure to head to a Telus location nice and early on the 8th to get your preferred device. What do you think about Windows Phone 7 OS? Like?

We just let you know that Telus will be carrying the HTC 7 Surround exclusively in Canada, but it seems as though Rogers is looking to get in on some exclusive Windows Phone 7 action as well. Expected to launch in early November (simultaneously with AT&T), the Samsung Focus features a 4" (480x800) Super AMOLED display, is powered by a 1GHz processor, and comes with 8GB of internal storage built-in. Additionally, the handset will be able to carry microSD cards up to 32GB, and the device offers up a 5MP camera to top off the impressive specifications. No definite word on pricing as of yet, but we expect it to come in around the $200 mark, as that's what AT&T will be offering it up for.

It's great to see Microsoft launching hard with some great manufacturers, and it's even better knowing they've put some solid time and effort into the new Windows Phone 7 operating system. Hopefully we'll see even more devices launched in the near-future, and as developers get some time with the new tools, we should see a large variety of applications ready at launch as well. This is truly an exciting day for anybody who has been waiting for the official Windows Phone 7 announcements!

Today, HTC unveiled 5 of their upcoming Windows Phone 7 devices, and among them is a Telus exclusive in Canada - the HTC 7 Surround. The HTC 7 Surround features the newly designed and announced Windows Phone 7 operating system, along with some impressive, and highly competitive hardware specifications to back it up.

Featuring a 3.8" (480x800) touch screen, 5MP camera capable of recording 720p HD video, and 16GB of internal storage, this Telus exclusive is perfect for capturing or experiencing media of any kind. One of the most unique features is the slide-out speaker system that offers up virtual surround sound and high quality audio so users can use the device to experience media along side others, rather than cutting themselves off from friends by popping in headphones. Powered by a 1GHz processor, you can be sure that device certainly won't lack power or speed, and should easily compare to top of the line handsets running on other platforms.

Expected sometime later this month, there is no definite word on pricing as of yet, but it's likely to come in around the $200 mark on a 3 year term. What do you think about the HTC 7 Surround and Windows Phone 7? Let us know in the forums!

Effective yesterday, Google has officially launched Google Maps Navigation 4.2 to Canadians running Android OS 1.6 or higher. The feature is an addition to the existing Google Maps application, and offers turn-by-turn voice navigation to users, much like traditional car-mounted GPS systems. With laws tightening up across Canada surrounding handheld device usage while driving, this is a much needed feature for users who wish to have one device "do it all". To enable the feature, simply download or upgrade Google Maps to version 4.2, which can be done by searching "Google Maps" in the Android Marketplace.

Rogers Communications mourns passing of Founder and CEO Ted Rogers

Visionary business icon, philanthropist, family man and proud Canadian
TORONTO, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors of Rogers Communications Inc. announces the death of our colleague, leader and friend, Edward Samuel "Ted" Rogers, the founder of the company, a visionary communications industry pioneer and an icon in Canadian business. He was 75. Mr. Rogers, known for his indefatigable drive, built Rogers Communications into a Canadian and North American leader in wireless telecommunications, cable television, broadcasting, publishing and more. Mr. Rogers' name is synonymous with innovative, high-quality communications products across Canada, products that improved and simplified the everyday lives of Canadians. "We wish to express our deepest sympathy to Loretta and all of the Rogers family for this loss," said Alan Horn, Chairman of Rogers Communications and acting CEO. "Ted Rogers was one of a kind who built this company from one FM radio station into Canada's largest wireless, cable and media company. A leader also in giving to the community through his and Loretta's many philanthropic initiatives. He will be sadly missed." Phil Lind, Rogers Vice-Chairman, worked alongside Mr. Rogers for almost 40 years. "Our sincerest condolences to Loretta, the children and the grandchildren. He will be missed by so many. Though Ted was relentless in business and building this company over the years, he was also very much a family man. His impact on family, community and country was as impressive as his business success," Mr. Lind said. Mr. Rogers, who suffered from congestive heart failure, saw his health weaken over the past few years. He was surrounded by loved ones when he died at his home in Toronto. Mr. Rogers' successor as Chief Executive Officer will be addressed by the Rogers Communications Inc. Board of Directors which intends to form a special committee to lead a search considering internal and external candidates. In the meantime, Alan Horn, Chairman of Rogers Communications Inc., will continue to serve as acting Chief Executive Officer and lead the company's office of the president. Funeral arrangements will be announced by the family.
