Sony stores in Canada are set to start selling the Xperia S exclusively on April 17
After making a splash at this most recent CES trade show, we’re still waiting to find out when the Sony Xperia S will be making its official debut in North America. Well, today brings some more wonderful news to our friends north of the border in Canada!

Specifically, Sony said in a press release that “a limited number of Xperia S smartphones will be available exclusively at Sony Stores across Canada, beginning April 17th.” Yes folks, you read that right, the Sony Xperia S will be available for purchase in a week, so the wait will all be over very soon!

Now before you start lining up at a local Sony Store in Canada, just be aware that this particular model is billed as being “compatible with the Rogers wireless network.” Therefore, if you happen to be on Bell or Telus, you’re out of luck – well, that’s unless this version is an unlocked model.

Unfortunately, the press release didn’t go into the exact details surrounding pricing, though, it’s being reported that the handset will be flaunting a $99.99 pricing with a 3-year agreement. Needless to say, that’s a long time being tethered down to a single device, but nevertheless, people up north should be accustomed to that sort of thing. Additionally, it’s stated that the handset will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it’s also mentioned to be upgradeable to Android 4.0 sometime later in the year.

If Android is your thing, than this a fantastic device. Best screen you can find on Android + the best camera. (only beaten by the Nokia N8 and 808 Pureview)

The processor is a little outdated now, but Sony has done amazing things with it.

I'm pretty sure that Android is every other person's thing.
