Last week we posted the upcoming Virgin Mobile Q4 Holiday lineup… they have decent devices for basically every level of customer: Android, BlackBerry and entry-level. Now we can share with you the confirmed contract price points and official launch dates:

BlackBerry Torch 9800:
Already available
LG Sway: Available October 21st for $0.00 on the SuperTab/contract
BlackBerry Bold 9780: Available October 21st for $149 on October 21st November 2nd
LG Flick: Available November 9th for $0.00 on the SuperTab/contract
Samsung Galaxy 5: Available November 12th for $0.00 on the SuperTab/contract

If you’re into contracts (or their SuperTab) the prices are correct. Most of them are priced at $0.00. Even the Bold 9780 is priced what the original Bold 9700 came out as… so you can expect this to see a price drop before this year is completed.

UPDATE: Virgin will be releasing the BlackBerry Bold 9780 on November 2nd

(Thanks Tipster!)

    Nothing exciting here. This will be boring and under performing holiday season for Virgin Mobile.

    Too bad the Galaxy 5’s screen size is only 2.8 inches. I’d imagine that makes it a non-starter for any number of people.

  • Charles

    Where’s the Galaxy S Vibrant that was supposed to be available at the end of October? Is it still coming? And if not, why the *&#* not?

  • Whyyyyyyy

    Why oh why don’t they get the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant?

    • Cadet

      it’s just because the parent company need to have that to compete with the big shots… or the other bullies

      while virgin is on the same level ground as solo and fido…
      yet virgin’s choice of phones are already way better compared to solo or fido D=

    Gotta love the fact that Virgin tossed up a pic of the Bold 9650 (the Tour 2 if you will from Verizon) on their chart.
    Knowledge fail

      The bb in the picture is the 9650 but that might be because picture are scarce at the moment. The 9780 doesn’t even have a proper photo on gsmarena. The thing should look exactly like the 9700 but with os 6.0 installed

  • Luka

    Will they at least offer a refurbished BB Bold 9700?
