Virgin Mobile presents the LG Optimus Slider and HTC Wildfire

The folks at the Virgin Mobile offices in Canada must be having a big American party today because they've once again secured some fairly awesome Android phones to deal another wave of damage to the rest of the market share competition in the USA. That may be a bit of a stretch, but compared to past offerings, the LG Optimus Slider and the HTC Wildfire are certainly contenders for their ever-greatening Android team. The LG Optimus Slider is not the same as the LG Optimus Note we saw a few weeks ago, but it does have a full QWERTY keyboard sliding out from under it - the HTC Wildfire S, on the other hand is basically the same version we've seen in England and on T-Mobile.

How Target’s Mobile Ecosystem works and how it could Improve

How Target’s Mobile Ecosystem works and how it could Improve

Welcome to Minnesota, Earth - Target Brand department store originating right here in my midwest place of birth, aiming for and achieving a spread across North America like a wildfire - and like any forward thinking place of business, they want to get in on the mobile business to keep their show on the road. Therefor they've created Target Mobile Store, or simply "mobile" by Target Brand and powered by Simplexity - this group, if you did not know, only handles online sales of cell phones and wireless service, thus you wont see "SIMPLEXITY" plastered all over the electronics department at your local physical Target location. Inside the store you'll find an endcap with four devices, a wall full of display units, and several aisles away you'll find two Apple displays, another aisle containing two Android tablets.

Virgin Mobile Takes on T-Mobile AT&T Merger with Sexy Sparah Party Video

It's time for Virgin Mobile's "Sparah" to take on T-Mobile and AT&T in an advertisement that not only paints the stark white backgrounds of T-Mobile, AT&T, Apple, and etcetera commercials black, they take T-Mobile and AT&T's characters down with them. Sparah is the name of Virgin Mobile USA's summer 2011 marketing campaign, one in which two supposed complete strangers have been lifted from obscurity to be manufactured into a celebrity couple to promote Virgin Mobile - Spencer Falls and Sarah Carroll. Apparently they're very popular and everyone in the celebrity world hates them or loves them or some combination of the two - now they're coming down on T-Mobile and AT&T with some sweet video action.

Motorola Triumph Review [Virgin Mobile]

Motorola Triumph Review [Virgin Mobile]

Today I have a sleek Motorola phone you'll want to check out. This is the Motorola Triumph and he learned most of his simple edges and design from the Droid X. In a way that is what we have here, a slimmed down, simplified yet nice version of the Droid X. This is the first Motorola Android phone carried by Virgin Mobile and it aims to be the best too. For a no contract phone this is a pretty solid buy for only $299 considering many phones of this level sold for $499 in recent months.

Motorola Triumph Hands-On and Unboxing

Motorola Triumph Hands-On and Unboxing

I received a little surprise yesterday from FedEx and it just so happened to be the Motorola Triumph that is headed to Virgin Mobile. The Triumph was first announced back in June, we were live in NYC for some hands-on time. For a little recap this is the Motorola Triumph and it's headed to Virgin Mobile and my favorite part is this triumphant phone won the battle with Blur and will in fact be running stock Android 2.2 FroYo (aka Vanilla) and will look and run as Google intended. I'm excited already!

Virgin Mobile USA to start data throttling

Virgin Mobile USA to start data throttling

I think we all knew the day was inevitable when the final carrier offering truly unlimited data would start throttling users and that day is now here. Virgin Mobile will start to throttle the heaviest users of data on the pre-paid service. The last time a major carrier moved to data throttling for heavy users was Verizon when it started throttling back in February of 2011. If you are wondering what Virgin considers a heavy user and if the throttling will affect you at least Sprint gives a clear indication of who it will be slowing down.
