Virgin Mobile site starting today. The previously announced iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are now available for $549.99 and $649.99 respectively. Virgin is offering free overnight shipping on iPhones now through 11 AM EST, Friday June 29. As daylight saving time is in effect, I don't know why Virgin is using standard time. They probably meant EDT, so I'd advise ordering before 11 AM EDT (10 AM EST) to be on the safe side.
The third phone is the leaked but never officially announced HTC One V. Unlike most Virgin phones which are older Sprint handsets, the One V was just released. It's a solid mid-range phone with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) 5 MP auto focus camera with LED flash. It also has Beats audio enhancement although you will need to buy a set of Beats headphones to get the full Beats experience.
