We've already heard that Google was expanding their Play Movies and Play Music services today to new countries and with new content. Play Magazines isn't getting left out in the cold, though. Today, the storefront is opening up to our neighbors up north, in addition to signing extra content partners for a more robust distribution platform.

As part of the huge announcement Google put together, the company touted its magazine partnerships:

We’re now working with Time, Inc.

We know a lot of our international readers have been eager to get their hands on the Play Store's content ecosystem. It turns out Google is just as eager for that as you are. In addition to movie rentals, users in Canada, the UK, France, Spain, and Australia will be able to purchase movies outright and watch them forever.

Said Google on the matter:

We’ve recently added a ton of great new entertainment to Google Play, such as movies and TV shows from Twentieth Century Fox.

Square, the service that makes "commerce easy for everyone," has just expanded its mobile payment/commerce service to Canada.

For those unaware, Square is an app/accessory that allows you to accept credit card payments anywhere from Android or iOS devices. The company provides a free card reader and app in exchange for a small percentage of each completed transaction, giving small and independent businesses an easy, inexpensive, and secure way to open up their products to those paying with plastic.

Residents of the great white north have a special treat coming up soon. The Galaxy Note II is coming to Mobilicity the day before Halloween. If you know you're going to want it on day one, though, you can sign up for a pre-order right now and get $50 off. Unfortunately, the ad doesn't specify just what price you'll get $50 off of.

RAZRHDLTE_Dyn_R_vert_Hero_CAN_ENG

The past hour has been full of Motorola this, and RAZR that for most of us here in the US, but what about our brothers (and sisters) to the north? If you want some RAZR HD love, Rogers is the place to be. The only place to be, in fact, at least for an LTE version of the device.

Motorola just announced that the newly-unveiled RAZR HD will be making its Canadian debut exclusively on Rogers Wireless in all of its 4.7" glory.

GALAXY-S-III-Product-Image-6_W_thumb

While Samsung pushes its newest flagship, the Galaxy S III, out all over the world, a few markets have been rumored to get a version with modified guts. Rumors previously circulated that the Japanese variant of the device would include twice the RAM of its global counterpart, and now we're hearing straight from Samsung that the Canadian variant will, in fact, come with 2GB of RAM. Additional internal changes include a 1.5GHz S4 processor (sorry, no quad-core Exynos in the Great White North), and LTE.

The AT&T Galaxy SII (i777) isn't the only Android device getting official CyanogenMod 9 nightly love today, as the first nightlies just went live for the HP TouchPad (codename tenderloin) and the LG Nitro HD (codename p930, also known as LG Optimus LTE on Bell Canada).

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

If you're in love with the Galaxy Nexus, but also have an affinity for hockey, maple syrup, and carriers not named Bell, Virgin Mobile, or Telus, then you've been left out in the cold. Don't worry, though. The winter of your discontent is about to come to an end. The Galaxy Nexus will be landing on Canadian carrier WIND on February 3rd. If you opt for the carrier's WINDtab+ program, you can grab the nexus for just $249.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

The powerhouse Samsung Galaxy Note is certainly making the rounds as of late - first in Europe, then it was announced for AT&T's LTE network in the U.S., and, soon enough, our neighbors to the north will be able to enjoy the 5.3-inch beast as well.

2012-01-18 14h07_14

According to Samsung Canada's website, the Note is expected to be available sometime in mid-February with an assumed launch on Telus' LTE network and announcements coming from Rogers and Bell soon after.
