This is a bit of an odd scenario, one we don?t see too often. Sony recently announced their first device following their takeover of Sony Ericsson, the Xperia S, and clearly stated that it would be available globally in March. As such, it has been assumed that the device will land in Canada, though which carrier is unknown. Recently, Sony announced that the device has shipped globally, but that they?re leaving it up to carriers to announce specific availability.

Next, Sony posted an image on their Facebook page that made clear mention the device would be heading to Rogers. What most saw as a clear-cut indication turned out to be some kind of mistake, however. Sony removed the image from their Facebook page, and Rogers stated that they will not be selling the device directly, though it will work on their network. This has led to some back-and-forth online, with many people believing the handset will be sold unlocked in Sony Stores rather than through carriers. This would certainly be an interesting step for Sony to take, and if they?re going that route, it will be interesting to see the results.

The Sony Xperia S features a 4.3? (720 x 1280) display, and a 12 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture. It has a secondary front-facing 1.3 MP camera capable of 720p video recording, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with ICS planned for Q2 sometime. Similarly to most recent Xperia handsets, it features the Mobile BRAVIA Engine and connectivity including HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. It also comes with NFC capabilities, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.

We just let you know that Sasktel has introduced a couple tablet data packages, and it looks like they've followed up by making microSIM cards available to the public. Customers can now purchase a microSIM card for use with their unlocked iPhone 4's or iPads for $10 each, or receive one for free "with device purchase on post paid contract", which can only mean a near-future iPhone 4 launch. According to sources, the Saskatchewan carrier will be launching the iPhone 4 sometime around Christmas, though no official confirmation has been received as of yet.

A rumour surfaced recently claiming the BlackBerry Pearl 3G would be coming to WIND Mobile soon, and at a price point of $320 outright. It turns out the rumour was true, and this handset is finally available and no longer labeled "Coming Soon". WIND Mobile are currently offering a $20 discount on the device as well, bringing it down to just $300. Even without the discount, this is the lowest unlocked price in the country currently, and is a great device for those who like the Pearl look and feel, but want 3G speeds and the upcoming BlackBerry 6 operating system.

KOODO Mobile has started preparing for their upcoming HSPA network launch, with internal systems showing information on SIM card testing. KOODO, a subsidiary of Telus Mobility, will be using Telus' HSPA network to deliver a better quality experience to customers across Canada, in addition to providing the freedom of using compatible unlocked HSPA handsets.

While no launch date has been released as of yet, we should see the network up and running in the near-future, with device announcements coming around the same time.
