Virgin Mobile - Four New Phones Now!

Looks like Virgin Mobile is actually releasing four new phones in the near future. In additio to the Slice II, the SwitchBack II and the Motorola w385, they're getting their first LG phone, the "Aloha", which looks to have a similar feature-set to the Marbl but with a slight PEBL-ish white look and Virgin Mobile's user interface. I am really glad that this phone is coming out soon...finally there's a decent low-end color flip with web access for Virgin Mobile...neither the Oystr nor the Marbl fit that bill and this one will definately do so, or pretty much definately.

For more info and pictures of the phone (which looks quite good in my opinion) look here:

By the way, I've decided against prolonging my $13.75 airtime sale...it's gone...for now...

What i would really love to know is why Virgin Mobile doesn't carry all the same phones in the US as they have in the UK....I would LOVE to have a Nokia 7373 in pink like this one http://www.virginmobile.com/vm/viewProduct.do?productId=EEED8E46-E946-4292-A5E8-36796083CA02 ....actually most all the phones on the UK website are way cooler than any on the US site.
