Virgin have today announced plans of a big push for Android phones on their network, having nabbed the highly sought after HTC Desire and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handsets.
The HTC Desire (pictured) was one of the stars of the show at Mobile World Congress 2010. Sporting a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and a 3.7 inch AMOLED display, it’s a take on the Google Nexus One Android phone, but wrapped up in HTC’s superlative Sense skin.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 isn’t too shabby either, with a 4 inch touchscreen and the Timescape app tying all your social networks, contacts, streams and messages together in one place.
Both phones will be hitting stores in April, and while Virgin remain tight-lipped on the details of their tariffs, the network promise the price-plans will be “exceptionally compelling”.
The smartphones join the Samsung Galaxy Portal and LG InTouch Max in Virgin’s portfolio of Android devices.
