Maybe this would have been exciting news for Virgin mobile customers a year ago, but the word on Thursday that the pre-paid carrier was going to add the Samsung Galaxy S II
to its lineup was met by yawns except for one far-sighted Virgin mobile customer who thought the story was about the Samsung Galaxy S III
. With Sprint no longer offering WiMAX to focus on LTE, it has been unloading former WiMAX models
like the HTC EVO 3D
and the Samsung Galaxy S II to Virgin mobile.
The price for the Samsung Galaxy S II will be $369.99 without a contract, and outside of the Virgin logo on the back, the phone should look exactly like the Samsung Epic 4G Touch
, which was the name Sprint gave to its version of the Galaxy S II. The phone will be available starting November 15th, in silver or white.
