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 New details are confirming that the decent but slightly outdated HTC EVO 3D will be headed to Virgin Mobile soon, possibly this summer as the HTC EVO V 4G.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.

ZTE Venture heads to Virgin Mobile on March 15th

Death of Ceaser? Check. Abdication of Tsar Nicholas the Second? Birth of Eva Longoria? Check. Now you can add yet another auspicious event to the Ides of March, when the ZTE Venture lands on Virgin Mobile this Thursday. While the Venture may not have the history-defining characteristics of, say, the third battle of Kharkov, it's still a pretty big deal for anybody who wants a Treo-style QWERTY candybar phone and doesn't particularly like mobile contracts. The Venture will be available starting on March 15th for $99.

HTC says One V headed to Metro PCS, Virgin Mobile and US Cellular

HTC's new One line has gotten a lot of us Android fans excited, and in America we're doubly excited to see a European launch event confirm US releases. The flagship HTC One X will be headed for AT&T (with a reduced Qualcomm dual-core processor) and the HTC One S is on its way to T-Mobile. But what of the One V, the smaller, cheaper phone that revives HTC's Legend design? According to PhoneScoop, it's headed for the land of the free as well: low-cost and prepaid carriers Metro PCS, Virgin Mobile and U.S. Cellular have already begun the initial steps towards adding the phone, said an HTC representative.

Galaxy Nexus on sale in Canada, Americans still out of luck

Oh Verizon, why do you vex us so? Just as planned, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now on sale at Canadian wireless carriers Virgin Mobile and Bell, giving the Great White North a taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Subscribers can get the Galaxy Nexus for $159.99 from either carrier, though naturally you'll have to sign up for a new two-year three-year contract or renew an existing one. Rogers is still planning a release for January.
