Excited for the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant to launch in Canada? This is hitting Bell on August 6th and is apparently exclusive. However… thanks to one of our tipsters for letting us know that Bell’s sub-brand Virgin Mobile will also be making this available to their members. Taking a look at this screenshot shows that employees are currently taking online training to master the device. No word on price points or an official release date… but know it’s coming soon.
I remember back in December of last year when Robert Blumenthal, the head of Virgin Mobile Canada, said that in 2010 we’ll a “very different Virgin” and “a great expansion in our portfolio and us being able to offer higher-value devices and services. Where we had been traditionally lower down in the marketplace, we’ll be expanding to realize our true potential”.
Not sure exactly what it is… possibly Bell taking them over or more wireless competition but clearly Virgin has stepped up their game with their lineup: HTC Legend, iPhone 4, BlackBerry 9700… soon the Vibrant.
