Virgin officially announces HSPA+ network with models

Virgin already went live with their new HSPA+ network on Friday, but today they made it official with a launch party that had Victoria Secret models. Not to shabby! Looks good to be a member of Virgin… just remember that Bell owns Virgin so you’re piggy backing on their network.

Robert Blumenthal, President, Virgin Mobile Canada said “As we boost our lineup with the smartest of smartphones like the BlackBerry Bold and other iconic brands, Virgin Mobile is now a true option for people searching for the best phones, the best experience, the best network and the best monthly plans. Today, Virgin Mobile is transforming itself from being predominantly a pre-paid player to a company that is truly taking on the contract and monthly plan market. With global roaming, a super-fast network and a whole range of exclusive add-ons, this is just the beginning. It’s only going to get better from here with more new, high-tech phones and services to come throughout the year.”

Here is a complete list of new devices and prices that Virgin has released:

Apple iPhone 3G, Apple iPhone 16GB 3GS, Apple iPhone 3GS 32GB, BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Curve 8530 (available in Purple or Black), Broadband2Go MC998D, Samsung M330 and the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2372.
