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!

Those who have been holding out for the white Galaxy Note from Samsung recently ran into some luck, with Telus releasing the handset. Now, Rogers and Bell have joined them in offering the white version of the popular Samsung device. Like Telus, both carriers are offering the tablet/smartphone cross-over for the same prices as the standard black version, as is standard practice.

If you?re interested in picking one of these up, all 3 carriers have its standard pricing at the $200 mark with a 3 year term, while Rogers offers it the cheapest outright at just $699.99 without a plan. [linki=http://www.mobileincanada.com/cellphone-1209-en-Bell-Samsung-Galaxy-Note.html]

Acer recently announced that their newest Android-powered tablet will soon be available in Canada, stating that major electronics retailers would have it available for ?pre-sale?. Future Shop had the device listed online and available for pre-order, with an estimated release date of April 6th, 2012. Since then, Future Shop has removed the tablet from the website entirely, and it?s nowhere to be found on other electronics retailer?s websites.

The Iconia A510 comes in two colours ? silver and black. It comes with 32GB of internal storage, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The upcoming tablet is powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 1 GB of RAM. It features a 10.1? (1280 x 800) touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera capable of 720p video capture, along with a secondary 1 MP front-facing camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

Telus has recently launched a new trade-in program to encourage customers to recycle their unused devices, offering up to $200 in value. The program is relatively simple ? you can trade in up to 3 devices, for a maximum combined value of $200. You can use that ?credit? towards the purchase of a new device or accessory, though you must renew or activate a new account when doing so. The program is applicable to cell phones, mobile internet sticks and portable hotspots, but doesn?t currently extend to tablets, unfortunately.

In the press release, Telus mentioned they commissioned a survey to find out what Canadians do with their old devices. The results came in with 61% of Canadians saying they have between one and five old or unused cell phones laying around at home. This is a smart offering from Telus and eRecyclyingCorps in their collaborative effort, hopefully the appropriate value is given to those who want to take advantage!

Perfectly in line with the launch of the new LTE enabled iPad, Virgin mobile has gone live with their LTE network. It piggy-backs off of Bell?s network, and is currently active in major urban areas including Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Yellowknife, and many cities in Southern Ontario including Toronto, London, Kitchener, and more. Of course, in order to support the new iPad, they are now offering LTE microSIM cards as well.

As for prices, they have decided to keep things simple and straight-forward, extending their existing Flexi-Data plan for tablets to include 4G LTE. This starts at $5/month for 10 MB, after which, it steps up to $15 for 250 MB. If you exceed 250 MB of usage, you enter the last tier of 5 GB for $35/month. Overages beyond 5 GB are charged at 1.5 cents/MB.
