Virgin Mobile’s 3G Shuttle handset slides into view

Ever since acquiring Helio, Virgin Mobile has finally caught up with the times and introduced a 3G handset with features that are actually worth talking about.

The company recently introduced a handset called the Shuttle, which will be their very first device with 3G network support. And aside from that, it’s got a slew of other goodies under the hood as well.

First up, the Virgin Mobile Shuttle is equipped with EV-DO and a built-in GPS, so it should have your need covered wherever you go (as long as there’s a signal!). It also has neat location-based services like Buddy Beacon and Where, which take advantage of the device’s built-in GPS technology.

Of course, it’ll also feature the obligatory 2-inch color screen, 1.3 megapixel camera with video capture, built-in music player and stereo Bluetooth. External memory is handled via an SD card slot.

Discounting the cost of its monthly mobile web data packs, the Virgin Mobile Shuttle will be available for $79.99 contract-free. Seems like a pretty reasonable price for a phone with pretty reasonable features.
