Nexus 5 specs outed on Wind Mobile pre-registration page

Nexus 5

Smaller Canadian carrier lifts lid on Google's and LG's next Nexus phone

The Nexus 5 leaks continue, and today it's Canada's Wind Mobile that's let the cat out of the bag a little early. Wind's newly-published pre-registration page shows the render we remember from earlier leaks, alongside a full spec sheet for the unannounced device. 

There's no guarantee that the spec sheet is 100 percent accurate, however it is an official carrier registration page, and what it's saying lines up with previous Nexus 5 leaks. In any case, the short version is we're dealing with a 4.95-inch 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 3, a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage and an 8-megapixel OIS camera. You'll find the longer version after the break.

We're expecting things to be all officially official with regards to the Nexus 5 and KitKat towarsd the end of the week.

Citizen plans crowdfunded takeover of Canadian carrier, raises a couple hundred

Citizen plans crowdfunded takeover of Canadian carrier, raises a couple hundred

You’d think a carrier takeover funded by the proletariat would have to be hostile, right? Heck, no. Canadian Valya Michael loves Mobilicity, all the way from its headquarters down to its little cell towers, and he fears a serious loss of commercial competition if the embattled company should fail. So he’s started a $400,000,000 campaign (in the northern currency, that is) to buy it out, clear its debts and invest in better coverage and customer service. We have no idea what Indiegogo, Mobilicity or the telecoms regulator will do if the funding target is achieved, but they all have plenty of time to draft a response seeing as the current total stands at $213. Meanwhile, the fate of that other big Indiegogo project seems almost as uncertain.

Rogers leak pins BlackBerry Q10 Canadian launch date as April 30th (update: pricing confirmed)

Rogers leak pins BlackBerry Q10 Canadian launch date as April 30th

BlackBerry fans waiting for an opportunity to blend the BlackBerry 10 OS with a more familiar QWERTY form factor may know exactly how long they have left, at least north of the border. Mobile Syrup received this pic tonight of what is purported to be an internal Rogers document, which lists the launch date for the BlackBerry Q10 as April 30th. A few other phones appear on the list as well, revealing the Canadian carrier will be offering the Nokia Lumia 520 and a couple of Doro’s PhoneEasy models. If this date holds up it’s a lot more specific than what we’d heard before — hopefully we’re not left waiting much longer for US release information.

Update: Rogers is going on the record for many more Q10 details… except the ship date. It tells us that the smartphone will cost $200 on a 3-year contract, and that Rogers will be the first (but not only) Canadian carrier with the white edition. The Q10 will also be one of the few Rogers smartphones to supplement the usual AWS-based LTE frequencies with the 2,600MHz band, the other notable example being the LG Optimus G. The more eager among us can reserve the Q10 today.

Could the Nexus 4 finally be heading to Canada’s TELUS?

Nexus 4

Price cards, dummy​ units signal arrival of Nexus 4 on Canadian carrier

Many Canadian mobile operators have been offering the LG-made Nexus 4 for the past several months, but TELUS has been a notable hold-out. Today we're starting to see signs that the carrier might be preparing to offer the Nexus for sale in-store. MobileSyrup has been tipped off with shots of pricing cards and dummy units for the Nexus 4 on TELUS, and it's also reporting that device should be going on sale from the second week of April — that's right, next week.

Take this with a pinch of salt in the absence of any official announcement, but it certainly looks like TELUS should be getting the Nexus 4 sooner rather than later.

Canadian Best Buy Stores to Start Galaxy Nexus Pre-orders on Monday Nov. 21

This image has no alt text

There may be no indication of when the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will come to the United States, but at least one North American country has had a bit more transparency in the lead-up to the first Android 4.0 smartphone’s release. Canada will see the Galaxy Nexus sometime in early December, but pre-orders will be taken at local Best Buy retailers starting on Monday, November 21st. Bell will be the first Canadian carrier to host the device, but other major players have the Galaxy Nexus on the slate for release early next year.

Blackberry Bold 9790 cleared for landing in Canada, Roger(s)

RIM’s reduced re-imagining of the Bold 9930 is barely out of the starting blocks, but Canadian carrier Rogers is promising to have the Bold 9790 ready for the native BB faithful before the end of the holiday season. It combines a 2.44-inch capacitive touchscreen with a fret style keyboard and a 1GHz processor. There’s nothing more specific on release dates and prices just yet, but we’re hoping the diminuitive screen and slightly less premium build will translate to a reduced price tag. Doors to manual and cross-check.

One of the hottest Android phones on the market is headed to Telus. Thanks to a report from Mobile Syrup, we’re glad to have learned that the HTC Amaze 4G will be dropping on the Canadian carrier November 4th with a handful of pricing options available. If you choose a 3-year agreement, you’ll get the device for $99.99. A 2-year deal will run you $499.99, while the 1-year option will ring in at $549.99. The no contract option will set you back $599.99.  If you’re unfamiliar with the device, hit the break for a couple pics and a spec fix.

The HTC Amaze 4G is an absolutely stunning device. It totes what is arguably the best digital camera available on a cellular device to date. In addition to the 8MP camera and 2MP front-facer, you’ll also get a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen (540 x 960), all wrapped up with an Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) bow.

Motorola RAZR comes to Rogers on November 4th

An internal document from Canadian carrier Rogers says that the Motorola RAZR, the international model of Verizon’s DROID RAZR, will be coming to the Great White North this Friday, November 4th. Significantly, that’s a week earlier than the November 10th date that Verizon has set to ship DROID RAZR phones to United States customers who pre-ordered. Also headed for Rogers is the Galaxy S Glide, a QWERTY slider that’s already been revealed.

The Motorola “DROID” RAZR is the company’s new flagship phone, using the notable RAZR name to reinvigorate a lineup that’s been somewhat vanilla as of late. It’s certainly appropriate: at an incredibly thin 7.7 millimeters (not counting the DROID X-style hump) it’s one of the most fashionable phones out there, and the Kevlar, Gorilla Glass and metal construction help to convey a sense of strength as well. a 1.2GHz dual-core processor compliments 16GB of internal storage and Motorola’s MotoCast remote access technology. Disappointingly, the RAZR will use Rogers HSPA+ network: there’s no mention of LTE anywhere in their press materials or website.

Pre-orders are live right now, and those who are already on contract or simply don’t wish to start one need to pony up $649, the same price as the American version. The Galaxy S Glide is the same price (why?) on the same 3-year plan. Hey Canucks, how’s about a little help with those locked bootloaders – maybe you could release our Android shackles even before the DROID RAZR gets here.

Rogers LTE equipped Samsung Galaxy S II arriving next week

Rogers has been taking preorder reservations for their LTE equipped Samsung Galaxy S II for quite some time now but the latest information coming from the Canadian carrier is that the device will be shipping as early as next week. A few lucky customers have already had their reservation orders fulfilled but other shipments now having been confirmed.

We’re also excited to confirm that we’ll continue to fulfill orders for the device as early as next week and expect to have enough devices for everyone in the reservations system.

A reminder though, Rogers LTE is currently only available in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa but no matter what network you connect it to, you'll find satisfaction in that 1.5GHz processor and 4.5-inch display.

Rogers’ Motorola RAZR to cost just $149 on three-year contract

Rogers Motorola RAZR

We'll still never understand why Canadians put up with three-year contracts. But we're definitely feeling a $149 Motorola RAZR on the only Canadian carrier to, erm, carry it. No mention of two- or one-year pricing. Trade-offs, we suppose.

  • According to benchmark tests, the Sony Ericsson Nozumi actually has a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU and uses Android 2.3.5. [LandofDroid]
  • Open Range Communications, a WiMAX provider in the Denver area, is laying off more than a hundred employees, shutting down its WiMAX service to new customers and the CEO resigned. [PhoneScoop]

iPhone 4S preorders open up at 3AM ET — are you ready? (Update: They’re live!)


It’s been a tumultuous week for Apple followers, but the earliest opportunity to snag the company’s new slab opens up in just a few hours. Without an extended review, we’ve done what we can by asking Siri to understand our most random queries, breaking down the costs / benefits, and even leaving it up to the masses. Decision time is upon us, so if you’ve just got to be first to order an iPhone 4S then either make it a late night or set an early alarm for 3AM ET — we’ll do you one more solid by linking up the US and Canadian carrier pages below (other international providers have only listed notification sign ups so far, but don’t worry, we’ve got them here too.)

Update: And they’re off! As of a few minutes after 3, all the US carrier’s sites are taking preorders as well as Vodafone in the UK, although word is AT&T and Sprint’s servers are overloaded so be patient. The Apple store went down for updates around midnight (ET) and is still down, but we’ll update again once it’s open for business.

Update 2: At 3:43AM, Apple.com is finally back up although you’ll still need some luck getting through at this point.

White Galaxy S II for Bell

I do not know why but every time when a regular black version of a smart-phone appears on the mobile market, everyone starts talking about an albino one. Why white devices are so popular among people and why it is so important to have exactly this and not that model? Anyway, for those who were expecting to get the Samsung Galaxy S II smart-phone in white, Bell has prepared a little surprise. According to the latest announcement starting October, 7 Bell will be offering the white Samsung Galaxy S II. To my own surprise, prices should follow that of the black version at $149 on a three year contract, and $599 off contract. While I would definitely become an owner of the black version, there is still something special in the white Galaxy S II. I know that Bell is a Canadian carrier and that our Northern neighbors will be the first one to get an albino S II but they live closer to the Northern Pole and maybe this was a reason for giving them the priority.

Novatel U679 Turbo Stick delivers 4G LTE to Bell laptop customers for $60, with 3-year contract

Novatel Wireless U679Do you live in one of Bell’s LTE markets and own a laptop? Do you wish your machine could hitch a ride on the Canadian carrier’s 4G waves? Well sir or ma’am, may we submit for your consideration, the Novatel U679 Turbo Stick — an LTE USB modem that can hit a maximum speed of 75Mbps. (Though, generally you’re looking at between 7Mbps and 14Mbps.) When LTE is unavailable, the U679 falls back on 42Mbps, dual-carrier HSPA+ or plain ol’ 21Mbps HSPA+. You can pick one up today for just $60 with a three-year contract, but those with a fear of commitment will have to plunk down $120 to avoid being locked into a service contract. If you’ve still got questions, might we suggest peeping the PR after the break.

Samsung Galaxy S Glide QWERTY Slider with a dual-core heads to Rogers

I know there is still a huge market for QWERTY slider smartphones these days, and for someone waiting for a powerhouse slider this may be exactly what you’ve been waiting for. Sadly for now this is only known to be headed to Rogers Canada but it sounds impressive and we have all the details. It may not be named a Galaxy S “II” but don’t let that fool you.

Shown in the image below the Glide features an impressive 4 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard with big and well spaced keys, as well as dedicated home, menu, back, and search buttons on the outer edges. We mentioned this is titled with the Galaxy S name and it appears Samsung chose not to call this a Galaxy S II phone but we aren’t fully clear why.

They may have left off the II in the name but they didn’t forget that second processing core. We have an unknown 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 4.0″ AMOLED display (no 4.3 or 4.5″ here), as well as that spacious 4 row keyboard, an 8 MP camera on the rear with LED flash and a 1.3 MP camera around the front for those partaking in video chat. Running on the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread and powered by Samsung’s Touch Wiz UX this looks to be a great well rounded phone.

No pricing was given by Samsung or Rogers but it should be available on the Canadian carrier just in time for the Holidays.

While folks in the U.S. have had Google Movies rental service on their devices for quite a while now, Canadians have been thus far left in the dark from having it appear on the Android Market. Now though, numerous reports have confirmed the service is slowly rolling out handsets along with the Android Market 3.1.5 update.

For now, the confirmations seem to only be coming from users of Canadian carrier Bell. I've tried numerous times to get the movies portion on my Rogers device but it's not showing up despite it now showing on the Android Market website as well. Anyone else seeing the update being pushed? If so drop us some comments.

Thanks, @Roscopcoletrain and Chris!
