Looks like other Canadian carriers are now deciding to release the BlackBerry Z30. At one time, it was only TELUS, Bell and MTS, then after a short debacle Rogers opted into make the 5-inch BlackBerry device available to its customers. Now, heading over to regional Saskatchewan-based SaskTel reveals that they too have chosen to support BlackBerry



iPhone 5s Review

I don’t like writing iPhone reviews. Everyone gets on your case because they have a preconceived notion of what an iPhone is. It’s the industry’s saviour; it’s the industry’s most insidious conduit to conformity. In truth, the iPhone is no longer either of those things. With the release of two new products this year, Apple



Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear now available in Canada

The day is here for all lovers of large phones and S Pens. The Galaxy Note 3 is now available, along with the Galaxy Gear smart watch, at carrier stores and retail outlets. The 5.7-inch smartphone is an impressive piece of technology, and a significant improvement, both aesthetically and functionally, over last year’s Note II.



iPhone 5c Review

There’s nothing like watching a child open up a new toy. The smile, the unbridled ferocity of his imagination or her curiosity. It’s all very inspiring. Apple customers seem to relive this joy annually, but this year there is a new colourful alternative to “last year’s model.” The iPhone 5c replaces the iPhone 5 on



CWTA and its partners launch GSM blacklist for stolen cellphones

Thieves may be less inclined to swipe smartphones from Canadians’ pockets after today.

The announcement is part of an overarching push to educate



SaskTel launches the Huawei Ascend Y300

As expected, SaskTel has released the Huawei Ascend Y300, very much an entry-level Android that is extremely affordable. SaskTel has priced the Y300 at $119.99 outright, while keeping it free on a 2-year term. From a design perspective there’s nothing really setting it apart from all the other low-cost Androids, but SaskTel notes that it’s

Now that the new iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s have successfully been released in Canada and available through the larger wireless players (Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Virgin, Koodo and Fido), the regional carriers are starting to announce launch plans. First up are Saskatchewan-based SaskTel and Manitoba-based MTS by confirming that both the iPhone 5c and



LG G2 Review

For a company of LG’s size and leadership in so many areas of tech, from televisions to washing machines, having comparatively small market share in the smartphone business must chafe. The company, like its South Korean counterpart Samsung, has been making decent phones for a few years — the G2X and Optimus LTE spring to



No U.S. carriers taking part in 700Mhz spectrum auction: report

For a while this summer, the incumbent carriers were beating the drum over a potential spectrum coup committed by U.S.-based Verizon Wireless. Under the current rules, telcos with over 10% wireless share are only allowed to bid on one spectrum block per region; all other bidders are welcome to two. Verizon was rumoured to enter
