Just when I thought Virgin Mobile was starting to overlook me for survey purposes, I get one in my inbox! This time we find out a few details of what they have planned for the future.
Here’s the first screengrab:
Hey, it looks like Virgin Mobile has yet another Android phone on the horizon! No specs; the survey just asked me what I thought of the name they planned for this “touchscreen Android phone” with the standard Android features.
Let’s move on to the second question:
Hmmm. Verve and Fling. What do you think? Despite my trigger-finger (where I inadvertently marked the Yes box) I wasn’t too crazy about either one of them.
Question the third:
Okay, now we’re getting somewhere. Judging by the information here, Virgin Mobile has two (presumably) Android phones planned for future release with the one mentioned above featuring both touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard. Possibly a replacement for the outdated and tired Samsung Intercept?
Finally, the fourth question:
So there you have it: the touchscreen/QWERTY combo will either be Venture or Chaser. Or neither, depending on what they decide with the answers given from this survey.
Regardless of the names, consumers have at least two more Virgin Mobile Android phones to look forward to and hopefully not as bad as the Motorola TRIUMPH, whose GPS has been notorious for its lackluster performance.
And if you are considering the switch to Virgin Mobile, they currently have a $25 credit promotion for new customers only. It started on 8/24/11 and runs through 9/5/11. There is also a time limit in place to activate the phone so if you want to take advantage of this, you better hurry.
