At Google I/O last week, a variety of announcements came our way regarding Android. Ice Cream Sandwich, Movie Rentals, and more were announced. One of the other items unveiled at the event was Honeycomb OS 3.1, the next update in the tablet-specific OS. Included in the update are a variety of new featurs, including resizable widgets, USB accessory support, and more.

Unfortunately, like with most events of this type in the U.S., Canada wasn't really discussed a whole lot. U.S. Motorola XOOM owners began seeing the update shortly after the announcement, while there has been no sign of it north of the border. Finally, Motorola Canada came forward on Facebook and declared that the update is coming soon. No specific dates were provided, but they did say:

"Some of the feature upgrades include basic external SD card support for general SD file and media access, expanded support for USB-connected accessories, additional Bluetooth support and Picture Transfer Protocol to enable easier transfer of photo files to your PC."

Certainly great news for Canadian XOOM owners!

Summer is coming, and with it comes WWDC and all kinds of announcements from Apple. This June, Apple says they're going to "unveil the future of iOS", which has many analysts sharing their thoughts. One of the most common rumours, with information apparently coming from individuals with knowledge of the company's supply chain, points to a September ship date for the iPhone 5.

Other speculation points to the new iPhone model having an edge-to-edge screen, but otherwise similar to the iPhone 4 physically. It will also come with an 8MP camera according to the information, and should have a much stronger A5 processor.

Who knows if this will prove to be true, or what else Apple has in store for us regarding iOS' future. Hopefully we'll see some truly innovative technology!

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!

There have been a number of rumours surfacing online regarding RIM developing a tablet device, including everything from screen size (7", 8.9"), to piggy backing for cellular data connectivity. According to the latest rumour, Research In Motion will unveil the new device next week at DevCon 2010 in the U.S., announcing features, specifications, and hopefully a release date. So far, the general consensus seems to be that the device will have a 7" touch screen, along with bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, though it will rely on the user's BlackBerry device for cellular data use. Names that have been tossed around for the rumoured device include "BlackPad" and "SurfBook", but pre-release model names often change upon launch, as should be the case with this one.

Probably the most discussed rumour is that the device won't be running an existing BlackBerry OS, but rather something entirely new and developed with help from QNX, a major OS maker that has experience in everything from vehicle software, to Nuclear Reactors. If RIM does launch a tablet powered by QNX software, we can be assured that it will not-only be stable and reliable, but more than likely a smooth and consistent experience as well.

Do you think RIM will announce their tablet next week? We'll be keeping up with live coverage, so stayed tuned for more details next week!
