Users of the Acer Liquid E are finally able to get their hands on Android 2.2 with the official software update available now. The phone, which launched equipped with 2.1 on Rogers and Fido in Canada, can now be updated to 2.2 from Acer Canada's website.
Samsung Mobile Canada has now officially announced their plans for Android 2.2 on Canadian Galaxy S Devices on their Facebook page. These devices include the Vibrant, Captivate and Fascinate and we will see an update in December with the Fascinate update coming in 2011.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is available in the US already on T-Mobile and Verizon, and soon AT&T and Sprint, but Canadians aren't so lucky- they haven't even got an official pricing of the famed 7-inch tablet. However, we may be getting a glimpse of what it could be priced at according to a leaked shot of a Rogers pricing chart.
Boy Genius Report just got in a massive series of tips of devices coming to Rogers Canada. Among the many tips the ones that caught our interest were the ones revolving around the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Dell Streak apparently set to hit the carrier this year.
Rogers Wireless was meant to carry the Samsung Captivate, the same device that launched for AT&T here in the States not too long ago, for awhile now, but it seems that the shortage of displays proved a bit too problematic for the Canadian carrier. However, that's all over and done with, as Rogers Wireless has officially announced that they have Captivates in store, ready to go.
It looks like our favorite Tablet device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, will be hitting Canada this fall on the two largest carriers in the country. This comes as no surprise, Samsung sure has been making this tablet a priority lately.
The LG GT540 was first showcased back at CES this year, and while it may not have been explosive enough to blow the socks off anyone even remotely interested in the Android platform, it's still an LG manufactured Android device. That's something noteworthy in of itself. It's been several months since its debut, so it's good to see the device is available on a carrier, even if it isn't one in the United States.
No surprises here, folks. Though, it is a bit strange to see that the Captivate and Vibrant are the options being sent up to the Great North, and not the international version of the Galaxy S. It must have something to do with the 3G bands, and how they don't have to work too hard to make them work on the Northern wireless carriers. In any event, both the Vibrant and Captivate are making their way up to Canada -- this month.
While we wait for our first Acer Android Device our friends in Canada now have the Liquid E. this is second handset in Acer’s Liquid series and it looks almost identical its predecessor. There has been a few welcome additions, first of which is the Snapdragon processor. Like the original Liquid, the Liquid E CPU is also under clocked to 768, so you dont get to enjoy the full befits of the 1GHZ clock speed.
