Rogers taking Galaxy S III pre-orders, Canadian pricing revealed

Canadian Samsung fans, today is the day you've been waiting for. Just hours after 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. Current Rogers customers can reserve theirs at this website, and prospective switchers can sign up for information. Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing or availability.

Virgin Mobile to offer unlimited talk and text $40 PayLo plan

Virgin Mobile has just outed a new no contract pre-paid plan options for those folks who don't need a top-tier smartphone but still love to talk and text. Announcing the new Virgin Mobile pre-paid PayLo plan offers unlimited talk and text, with 50 MB of data (web access) for $40 monthly. While the deal sounds decent this is more for feature phones that have web access, not a smartphone running Android.

LG Optimus Elite hits Virgin Mobile for $149.99

And now, we present our prime candidate for the most poorly-named phone since the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (breathe): the LG Optimus Elite. This phone is now available from Virgin Mobile's website and retails stores for $149.99, and like all Virgin Mobile (US) devices it comes sans contract. The phone is launching on Virgin three days before it was expected to hit the parent company.

HTC EVO V 4G gets hand-me-down 4G on Virgin Mobile

The great WiMAX hope for The Now Network has faded, and they're now investing in a true LTE network slated for some time later this year. But that doesn't mean that they're going to let all those "4G" WiMAX towers go to waste - they'll just open them up for users of their low-cost subsidiaries, like Virgin Mobile's US arm. Their first "4G" phone will be the HTC EVO V 4G, announced today at CTIA in New Orleans.

HTC One V heads to the US this summer

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.

HTC EVO 3D CDMA Ice Cream Sandwich ROM leaked

There have been a surprising number of Ice Cream Sandwich builds released from the major manufacturers, but I honestly wasn't expecting to see this one. 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.

HTC EVO 3D heads to Virgin Mobile as the EVO V 4G

In a smartphone world starting to get crowded with powerful dual and quad-core processors, 720p HD displays and more it appears that Virgin Mobile is still a little behind the times. New details are confirming that the decent but slightly outdated HTC EVO 3D will be headed to Virgin Mobile soon, possibly this summer as the HTC EVO V 4G.

LG Optimus Elite pictured – doesn’t sound too Elite

A new phone from LG has been leaked today in a set of official renders or press images. Being called the LG Optimus Elite although I'd go as far as to call it much less than that. We've seen reports on this phone before with a rumored name of the LG Optimus Net and Gelato, but we can now confirm this phone and its "Elite" status.

Virgin Mobile data and text services down in the US

Here we go again. Reports from Virgin Mobile customers all over the United States indicate that both data and SMS (text) services are non-responsive. Virgin is aware of the problem, and while they're working on it, they don't have any solutions or timeframes just yet. It looks like every Virgin Mobile phone in the country is affected, which might mean it's either a small problem that caused the whole system to crash or a big, hulking disaster that will take quite a while to fix.

HTC One X headed for Virgin Mobile in Australia

Sometimes our friends down under get unfairly left out of the news as far as the latest and greatest hardware goes. Fear not, Australians: HTC hasn't forgotten about you, and neither has Ausdroid. They spotted the HTC One X hanging out a Virgin Mobile web page. (Not to be confused with the US version of Virgin Mobile, a budget no-contract network - in Australia it's more like AT&T or Verizon.) While there's no release date beyond "early April", the One X is free with a two-year contract on a $59 plan or higher.
