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!

So far this year, HTC has been pretty focused on their One line-up of Android handsets, at least for Canada. The line-up includes the One X, which Rogers currently offers, as well as the One S and One V. The One V is currently available from Bell, and the One S is expected to hit multiple carriers.

The HTC One S features a 4.3? (540 x 960) Super AMOLED touch screen display with Gorilla Glass, and an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It comes with a secondary VGA front-facing camera, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The One S is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and comes with 16 GB internal storage.

The One V features a 3.7? (480 x 800) touch screen display, and a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. It?s powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, and comes with 4 GB of internal memory. What is particularly appealing about this Android 4.0 ICS handset is its unibody construction, similar to the HTC Legend that was known as a pretty tough device.

Unfortunately, pricing is not confirmed as of yet. What we can let you know, thanks to internal documents leaked online, is that both are planned for launch on May 17th. Additional support for that timeframe is the fact that dummy units have been received by numerous stores. Given the specifications, we can expect the One V to come in at a relatively affordable price, while the One S will probably be comparable to other higher end Android handsets. Stay tuned, we?ll let you know as soon as pricing can be confirmed!

All three big carriers are now offering LTE connectivity in major urban areas, with network expansion apparently in the works. When it comes to Android tablets with support for the ultra-fast network, Bell and Telus currently offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE, and Rogers has the HTC Jetstream.

The Tab 8.9 LTE is about to find its third home in Canada, however, with Rogers preparing to launch it in the near-future. Dummy units have arrived at some retail stores, though a specific launch date and pricing haven?t been confirmed as of yet. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE features an 8.9? (1280 x 800) touch screen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, a 3 MP rear-facing camera with 720p video capture, and 2 MP front-facing camera. It runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and comes in at 8.6 mm thin.

Interested? We?ll keep you posted as more information becomes available!

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 typically gets the exclusives on white BlackBerry models in Canada, but as of recently we've seen Virgin Mobile and Bell offer up some white versions. Rogers hasn't stopped with the white models, however, and recently white dummy units of the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and Bold 9780 began arriving in stores. While no definite information is available regarding pricing or launch date, pricing should come in as the same as the standard black versions, and these versions should launch fairly soon. What do you think about the white versions of the Torch and Bold 9780? Let us know in the forums!

After many rumors and leaks claiming the BlackBerry Torch would be delayed, we've finally received confirmation on when users can expect the new device to be available. The Torch will be officially available from both carriers on September 30th, nearly a week after the originally announced launch date. Rogers is still set to carry the device for $199.99 on a 3 year term, though Bell has reduced their price by $20 to $179.95, a good attempt to make up for the delay. Additionally, Canadians looking to pick up the Torch 9800 from Bell can order it online beginning today, with the units expected to ship on the 29th.

While there's been no official word on why the delay is taking place, the BlackBerry community seems to agree that it's due to last-minute OS updates. It will be interesting to see what changes in the official launch OS, over the current v6.0.0.227 official OS.
