BlackBerry Tour
Launching with TELUS and Bell in July 2009, the BlackBerry Tour fits as well in your pocket as in your hand.  The user-friendly, backlit keyboard makes typing emails and working on documents easier than ever, and the 480x360px hi-res display delivers crystal-clear quality-whether you’re browsing the web, watching video or viewing pictures taken by the built-in 3.2MP camera.

HTC Snap
Launching with TELUS, keep in touch with the people who matter the most with the Snap’s Inner Circle feature.  With the press of a button you can view emails from only your closest contacts, while the Snap’s integrated life management features keep your social and work life in sync and running smoothly.

HTC Touch Pro2
Launching with TELUS, business is quicker with the Touch Pro2.  Make conference calls and instantly invite people from your contact list, or even direct from an email.  Place it on your desk and you get a professional-quality speakerphone, with clear sound quality and an adjustable tilt screen for easy viewing.

HTC Dream, Magic Android powered phones launch


Today Rogers is launching the Android powered HTC Dream and Magic. I had a chance to play with both of them and was very impressed. Not just because it’s something new to try but because they seem to work well.

Both will cost $149.99 on a 3 year if you have a plan with a minimum monthly fee of $45. Rogers is also bringing back the $30/6GB plans for these devices until July 1st 2009.

Here’s the goods:

  • Full suite of Google applications including Google search, Gmail, Google Talk, Google Apps and YouTube
  • Android Market (an app store)
  • Quad band GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900Mhz
  • Dual band HSDPA 850/1900Mhz, 7.2Mbps
  • 3.2″ 320×480 LCD with capacitive touch screen (no stylus needed)
  • Gmail and Exchange support both with push
  • IMAP and POP3 email support
  • 3.2MP camera
  • Bluetooth, WiFi
  • Micro SDHC card slot
  • Both use a mini USB connector located at the bottom for charging and headphones. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack


The Dream has a slick pop out keyboard, 1150mAh battery and 256MB RAM with a Qualcomm MSM 7200 528Mhz processor.



The Magic has no physical keyboard, is a bit thinner and noticeably lighter 1340mAh, 288MB RAM with a Qualcomm MSM 7201 528Mhz processor. Please excuse the picture, the table had a bright red table cloth on it.
