When Virgin Mobile announced it’d be selling the One X, I pretty much picked that it’d also end up at Optus as well. Optus has just confirmed this, as well as announcing its pricing plans.
Optus’ pricing isn’t differing greatly from Virgin Mobile’s prices, with the suggested contract plan for businesses or consumers being a $59/month 24-month plan. Optus’ website states that pre-orders placed by March 29 should be delivered to metropolitan areas by April 2 — I wonder when they’re launching it?
If you’ve got an ABN, there’s a small incentive to register it as a business phone, given that the consumer plans get two months of free access while the business plans get three. [Optus]
