We’ve received a tip-off from persons familiar with the matter suggesting that the HTC One S will be launching on Virgin Mobile come July 1st. While the idea of a launch on Virgin is completely plausible, a Sunday launch date isn’t. Perhaps we’ll see it launch during the week of July 1st instead.
Our source has said that pricing will be $0 on Virgin Mobile’s “BIG PLAN 39” which includes $650 of credit as well as 2.5GB of mobile data — not too shabby if you ask us.
This information reinforces a possible release on Optus as well, seeing as we’ve already received photos of dummy units of the One S and One V arriving at Optus stores. A launch on Optus makes sense for a launch on Virgin as well. We’ll see how it all comes together early next week.
