This was eventually bound to happen but we’ve been informed that Bell’s sub-brand, not the almost forgotten Solo Mobile but the über-cool Virgin Mobile Canada will be launching the Apple iPhone. The targeted release date is scheduled for the February time frame… which means Virgin is going HSPA.
No word of pricing but you can bet it’ll be the same as Bell and all the others:
3G 8 GB: $99.00 on a 3-year contract
3G 16GB: $149.00 on a 3-year contract
3GS 16 GB: $199.00 on a 3-year contract
3GS 32 GB: $299.00 on a 3-year contract
In the meantime, we’re also told that Virgin is going to be launching a prepaid CDMA wireless internet stick for around $149.99 soon. This will probably be the Novatel Wireless U760 USB Modem that Bell launched a couple months ago.
Stay tuned for more.
