Well it started out on Optus and is now making its way to Virgin. Although not listed on their website yet, we have received word that Samsung Galaxy S II is now available via Virgin dealers, dropping on the Easy Cap 49 with a $5 monthly repayment, and also getting cosy on the Smart Cap 69 and the Topless 99, the handset is free on both of the higher plans. We do know that Telstra and Vodafone are looking at a July release for the handset, so it seems Optus and Virgin get first dibs, followed by the rest. Anyone[Read More...]

The ever appearing Red Defy is now ready to make another break for cover, this time landing on Virgin. We reported a number of weeks ago that it was likely to hit Virgin, only to then find out it was Crazy John’s who got the little Red number, well now it’s Virgin’s turn like we first thought. The rugged Motorola Defy will hit Virgin, starting at $0 on their Easy Cap 39, coming with $300 of calls and text and also 300MB of data, along with the usual Virgin includes, like Virgin 2 Virgin free and free voicemail. As an[Read More...]
Well it seems like forever ago that we both heard and reviewed the Xperia Arc, then heard it had been delayed, then delayed again. Well wait no more, the Arc has officially started to roll out to Optus dealers today. We have been emailed by a few people in the know, stating that Optus stores and dealers have started to receive their long awaited shipments of the Sony Ericsson dream phone. There is a small problem, Optus have not dropped the price of the Arc and are still advertising the Arc as $0 on a $79 Cap, this is the[Read More...]
Last week we posted about some information we received, regarding a Red Motorola Defy and Virgin. We then updated that article to say, that there was definitely a Red variant floating around but Virgin wasn’t going to be the exclusive carrier. Well it turns out the update was on the money. Crazy John’s have just thrown up a “Coming Soon” page showing, you guessed it, a Red Motorola Defy. The page doesn’t give us much, other then a few pictures of it, in it’s Red attire and it’s basic specs. What we do know however, is that it’s going to[Read More...]
So Ausdroid has been in Sydney rocking out with the people from Sony Ericsson. We were invited to their exclusive Xperia Launch party — held last Wednesday night — and we had a ball. Buzz and myself both attended what was basically the official launch of the Xperia range, the Arc, the Play and the Neo. We were served drinks and food by computer/console game characters and some famous faces such as Lara Croft and Bruce Lee, all the way up to Slash from Guns N Roses. It was a really enjoyable night, thanks to James at Sony Ericsson and[Read More...]
Update: It didn’t take long to get some more info on this one. It seems there is definitely a Red variant floating around, hence the updated image, and also it doesn’t seem it will be a Virgin exclusive. Thanks for the update. We received this little tidbit of info along with our Optus Atrix/Xoom rumour we posted. We didn’t post it then, however, as we didn’t want to have a day full of rumours, and also, we wanted to see if we could confirm the info. We haven’t been able to confirm it as much as we would like,[Read More...]
Well look what has arrived in my inbox this morning. The Virgin display cards for both the new HTC Incredible S and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, and packing very nice pricing along with it. The Incredible looks to launch on the 39 Easy Cap and the Play to be $10 a month on the 49 Easy Cap. That’s great pricing for two well stacked handsets. Anyone going to take these handsets with Virgin? Also attached was the display card for the Play with Optus, launching at $0 on the $79 Cap, that is just edging out the Arc in[Read More...]
HTC is finally coming back to Optus, in the high end of the range. Launching May 1, Optus will have the Incredible S at their disposal, in an exclusive agreement for 1 month. Official pricing has not been confirmed, however our sources tell us, $0 on either a $49 or $59 Cap. We have also heard from a number of tipsters that Virgin will also range the handset $0 on the $39 Easy Cap, now that’s a great deal. We do not know whether Virgin will have the handset at launch at this stage, but let’s hope so. For the[Read More...]
With the Galaxy S 2 not very far away, Samsung and the carriers, are stepping up their moves to clear the remaining stock of the original Android powerhouse, the Galaxy S. Vodafone and Three have dropped the handset to $0 on a $29 and now Virgin have joined the fight, adding the Galaxy S to their Big Cap lineup, along with a $6 handset repayment. This brings the handset in at $35 a month for $450 of credit and 200MB of data. Great deal? I think so, what do you guys think?
We have a lovely little tipster who send us in some information regarding the Arc and Virgin. It seems as though Virgin is going to be the one, to lead the race to the bottom with pricing, by launching the Arc at $5 on a Easy Cap 49. This makes it $54 dollars a month, which is a great deal. Included on the Easy Cap 49 is $450 worth of credit, 500MB of data and Unlimited Virgin 2 Virgin calls and text. Finger crossed the “Coming Soon’ shown on the bulletin means real soon.
LG have been trying hard but it seems to all be in vain. I have received information, from a number of different sources, and they are all saying the same thing: the Optimus 2X is looking like it’s not going to be picked up by any Australian carriers and will go it alone via retail channels only. What does this all mean you say? Hit the break and find out.
In this month’s edition of the Allphones Buyer’s Guide, three handsets have showed up in their Handset Showcase pages: Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, LG’s Optimus 2X and Optimus Me. All are slated as coming soon and no further details are found in the catalogue. The strange one for me is the Optimus Me: it’s not a handset I’ve seen before. Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, who knows? Your are all aware of the 2X and the Arc, but let me breakdown the Me to you all. It’s a 2.8 inch capacitive touch screen phone, running Android 2.2, it[Read More...]
Virgin Mobile have recently lowered the minimum $0 cap for the HTC Aria to $29 on their Easy Cap range. The $29 Easy Cap will give you a satisfying $190 credit and 100MB of data for most of your non-video browsing needs. If the recent HTC leaks (we’ll cover these in a minute) are anything to go by, the Aria is looking to become outdated at Mobile World Congress next month. But hey, it’s $29
