Virgin Mobile, as expected, has released the HTC Sensation 4G as well. Same price points as Bell is offering it up for at $149.99 on a 3-year or SuperTab and $549.99 no-term. This Android 2.3 device is a solid addition to their lineup: 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, Wi-Fi, 8 megapixel camera that shoots 1080p HD videos… review coming up later today.

    Dang, I had hoped that the rumour of it being $499.95 would have been true. :(

    Too bad they couldn’t waive the $35 activation fee for no term service…

  • Jonathan

    well if you wanna get around that 35$ fee just go to bell to get the sensation. they are offering a promo where they wave that fee. so im gonna buy the phone there and then cancell the service and unlock it and poof have a sensation on telus!

    The super tab takes 10% of total cost your monthly bill and uses that to pay off the tab. Lets do some math, $400 discount/10% credit = $4000!!!. Over 3 years you would need to spend $111/month to pay off this phone. I don’t know about you but the supertab makes 3 year contracts look good.

    • Nex

      Except for the fact that you can simply pay off your tab whenever you want.

    • GENERAL WONG

      You sir are an i***t. The 10% is INCLUDED in the price. you won’t pay more if you chose supertab.

  • Andrew

    The supertab is usually sold on low end phones High-End phones supertab sucks 7-8 years to pay off the phone but on lets say a gravity 3 depending on the plan it could be less than 2 years as well as if they decide after a year they want a smartphone on a 3 year the buyout price is nothing so yes supertab sucks but its good on other things.

  • ELNY

    At least with the tab, you’re just buying out your phone if you cancel and not a max of $500 or even $100 cuz you canceled your data.

    Bell’s activation fee was only waived on 3 year terms, and that promo expired yesterday :(

  • Jonathan

  • GMan
