Virgin Mobile releases iPhone 4 plans

Virgin will offer Australian customers the iPhone 4 on its Easy Caps as well as its Smart Caps

Scant hours before Apple's latest hyped handset is slated to go on sale at midnight tonight in Australia, Optus subsidiary Virgin Mobile has released its pricing for the device.

Virgin will offer Australian customers the iPhone 4 on its Easy Caps plans -- which focus on providing voice and text value -- including "unlimited" mobile talk and text to other Virgin customers, as well as its Smart Caps plans, which focus on data usage.

The mobile telco's entry-level Easy Caps plan costs $29 per month and comes with 100MB of data and $190 of included value, with the 16GB iPhone 4 to cost customers a total of $15 extra per month on top, and the 32GB model to cost $35 per month extra on top -- all on a 24 month plan.

The top Easy Caps plan costs $49 per month and comes with 500MB of data and $450 of credit. The 16GB iPhone 4 will cost customers $5 extra per month on this plan, or $20 for the 32GB model.

In turn, Virgin's Smart Caps plans start at $39 per month -- with that plan offering 1.5GB of data and $190 of included credit. The 16GB iPhone 4 will cost an extra $15 per month on top -- or $25 per month for a 32GB model.

The highest Smart Cap plan from Virgin will cost customers $59 a month and come with 2.5GB of data and $450 of included call credit. On this plan customers will pay nothing extra for the 16GB iPhone 4, but they will pay an extra $18 per month on top for the 32GB model.

Comparatively, Australia's other telcos have released plans that range through the full spectrum of pricing -- all the way up to $99, for example, on Vodafone or Telstra -- while Virgin appears to have attempted to keep its plans at the lower-priced end of the spectrum.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
