Top Canadian stories from the past week, plus other news from around the web

What a busy 7 days for Canadian mobile. Several device launches – Lumia 920, Optimus G, Xperia T, HTC’s 8X – and even a few new carrier price plans. Apart from Google taking us for a tour of their Toronto office, which was incredible, they also put up the new Nexus devices for sale. In addition, this week saw RIM roar back with an official announcement of BB10 launching on January 30th, 2013, but we’ll see BBM Voice hit the market in December.
