Virgin Mobile's JukeB packs Gingerbread and portrait style keyboard - bound for North America
Always a place where we can sniff out some unannounced phones, the Bluetooth SIG manages to dish out some details regarding the “JukeB” – a device that’s believed to be bound for Virgin Mobile in North America.

Even though it’s likely to be called the Virgin Mobile JukeB, the handset is actually manufactured by TCT Mobile – the Chinese company responsible for producing Alcatel phones. Just by looking at the image, we get a small sneak peek to its portrait QWERTY form factor with Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 on board. Additionally, the listing mentions other features such as a QVGA display, Bluetooth, rear camera, and a 1,300 mAh battery.

It’s unclear from the provided information if it’s heading to Virgin Mobile USA, Virgin Mobile Canada, or to both – but it explicitly mentions a North American availability. If it lands with Virgin Mobile USA, it’ll be the first device they’ll be selling with Gingerbread baked in.
