Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of wireless for the week of August 1, 2011:
  • Vodafone unveiled the world's first prepaid-only Facebook phone, dubbed the Vodafone 555 Blue. It has a portrait QWERTY, 2 MP camera, 2.4-inch display, and a few other minor features added in. No word was given on pricing or availability, only that it'll be sold through its own shops and website. [via Pocket-Lint]
  • The Motorola Milestone Plus is Cellular South's variant of the Droid Pro, a portrait QWERTY that runs Android 2.2 and has a 1GHz CPU and 3.1-inch display. It can be yours for $200 with a two-year commitment and after a $50 mail-in rebate. [via AndroidCentral]
  • While we're chatting about Cell South, the regional carrier will soon release the Samsung Admire, the same entry-level Android device we've peeked at en route to MetroPCS. No pricing or availability have been announced. [via AndroidCentral]
