Virgin Mobile teases 4.1-inch Android phone with Snapdragon in survey

Chris Ziegler

Virgin Mobile USA has been all about the low- to midrange in its smartphone efforts thus far, but it sounds like that could be about to change in the not-too-distant future. In a survey to customers gauging their opinions of different potential brand names, the Sprint subsidiary talks about a device with a 4.1-inch WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera, HDMI-out, and a Snapdragon core -- specs that easily put it head and shoulders above the Samsung Intercept and LG Optimus V. We can't think of any CDMA devices out there right now that line up with this, though both Dell and ViewSonic have used 4.1-inch displays on Android devices recently. Would be pretty crazy to see Dell make a CDMA play on Virgin of all carriers, wouldn't it?
