Virgin Mobile USA (one of Sprint’s pre-pay brands) announced the release of its very first 4G smartphone – the HTC Evo V 4G – alongside new no-contract 4G data plans (using Sprint’s WiMax network, not LTE).
As previously mentioned, the Evo V 4G is based on the HTC Evo 3D introduced by Sprint last year. Unlike Sprint’s handset, Virgin’s Evo V 4G runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Other features: 4.3 inch qHD display, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, 5MP rear camera with 3D recording, and an 8GB MicroSD card pre-installed. The handset will be available at Virgin Mobile on May 31, for only $299.99 (no contract required, of course). Unlimited no-contract 4G plans will start at $35 per month.
Virgin Mobile also announced the launch of a new Overdrive Pro 3G/4G mobile hotspot (priced at $149.99), and a U600 3G/4G USB Stick (priced at $99.99). These will be available the same day as the HTC Evo v 4G.
