Virgin’s handsets on the new plans only include a variety of smartphones from the iPhone 4S through to Windows Phones and Android handsets.
Virgin Mobile also committed today to launching 4G capabilities (leveraged over from Optus) before the end of the calendar year. There’s no exact details on when or where it will launch, but Virgin expect that it will launch in step with Optus’ own 4G network.
