Virgin Media readies Android attack

HTC Desire and Sony Xperia X10 launches lined up

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Virgin has become the latest mobile phone network to catch the Android bug - it has launched two smartphones based on the Google OS and will release two more next month.

April will see both HTC's Desire and Sony Ericsson's Xperia X10 come to Virgin Media on what the company promised would be a range of "compelling" tariffs.

The Android 2.1-based Desire was announced in February and is set to appear on almost every UK network. Android buffs are looking forward to its 3.7in OLED screen and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Sony Ericsson will be pushing the X10 hard next month, touting its 4in touchscreen and custom TimeScape social networking-centric UI. You can see our video demo here.

VM currently offers the Samsung Galaxy Portal - due to be upgraded to Android 2.1 in the coming months - and the LG InTouch Max GW620, reviewed by Reg Hardware today.

The GW620 is available now, VM said, on a range of pay monthly tariffs, including a £22 per month deal that includes 250 call minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited mobile internet, and provides the phone for free.

The Galaxy Portal is available on the same rate. ®
