Virgin Mobile USA has announced their latest Android smartphone. The handset is the Kyocera Event and it joins the pre-paid device lineup with a price point of just $79.99. Of course, given the low contract-free price, one may come to the assumption that the specs are not what could be described as high-end. Truth be told, that would be true, but remember -- the point here is a low handset price and a low monthly price. And to achieve that, you sometimes need a trade-off.
Nexus 4 has been making its way to a variety of Canadian carriers, and it looks like Virgin Mobile Canada is next in line to receive the device. The smartphone has already made its way to Videotron, WIND Mobile, and Fido. Virgin Mobile Canada didn't release an official date on when they'll sell the device, but they do have a sign-up page if you want to be notified once the Nexus 4 is released.
LG Nexus 4 has come available with yet another UK based carrier. The latest is Virgin Mobile, which joins Three and O2. Of course, the Google Play Store also sells the Nexus 4 in the UK, however we all know how that is going at the moment -- out of stock. Simply put, if you are in the UK and looking for a Nexus 4, one of the carriers seems like your best bet.
regional carrier Videotron put up their standard sign-up page for the Galaxy S III, Rogers has begun taking pre-orders for the flagship device.

T-Mobile's One S and AT&T's One X are grabbing headlines, but let's not forget about the junior member of HTC's new first family. The Taiwanese company made a brief press announcement today stating that the HTC One V would be headed to the US of A this summer, on "a variety of U.S. partners". No more precise date or pricing information is available, but the One V is well-positioned to be an excellent low-to-mid-range Android device.
A generous XDA member has posted the Android 4.0 ROM for the HTC EVO 3D, straight from the source and ready for flashing. This particulate software build is intended for Virgin Mobile's US version of the phone, but it will work with The Now Network as well.
