Samsung Impact now available from Virgin Mobile

TORONTO (ONTARIO) March 31, 2010

Today Virgin Mobile once again powered up its line-up of HSPA ready phones with the arrival of the stylish and innovative Samsung Impact.

Wrapped up in a bright orange package, the Impact delivers a full web browser, a 3.0 megapixel camera, an advanced touch screen and a music player with up to 16 GB of expandable memory.

"The Samsung Impact brings our Members yet another option to connect to the fastest network and get access to truly global mobile," said Robert Blumenthal, President, Virgin Mobile Canada. "It's perfect for surfing the net on the go and for playing all of your favourite tunes. And it's bright orange. Everyone loves orange!"

Connecting to the new HSPA network, the Samsung Impact hooks you up to rocket-fast calls and downloads on Canada's largest and fastest high speed mobile network , covering 93% of the country's population. Plus, you can get truly global mobile with coverage in more than 200 countries.
