Virgin Mobile opening first 10 retail stores on Friday, could prompt rollout

BY Staff Writer

Chicago — A Thursday report by Bloomberg said that the Sprint-owned pay-as-you-go carrier Virgin Mobile will open 10 retail stores on Friday in Chicago, as part of its plan to leverage iPhone’s expansion into the prepaid wireless space.

With the openings, Virgin Mobile will become the second U.S. prepaid service to offer the Apple device, following the iPhone’s debut at Leap Wireless International on June 22.

The new stores, said the Bloomberg report, also mark a strategy shift for Virgin by opening its own stores rather than relying on retailers such as RadioShack and Best Buy to market its services.

“We think there’s good demand for high-end devices like the iPhone in the prepaid market,” Sprint CEO Dan Hesse told Bloomberg. “Our expectation, based on preorders, is that the iPhone will do very well on Virgin.”

Spring said the 10 Chicago stores opening Friday could lead to a national rollout.

The SGH-T989 is T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. compromis de vente When it was released in April 2011, the phone was running Android 2.3. It wasn't until last June that the phone received its first update to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. And that is where the phone was left until now, with the current update to Android 4.1.2 rolling out today. Since the previous update did not change the UI, the new one brings the latest Nature UX which means that after installing the updated OS build, your Samsung Galaxy S II UI will resemble the one on the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II. Obviously, the phone will be the recipient of Project Butter, allowing for silky smooth, lag-free movement on the screen. The actionable notifications allow you to respond to a missed call, or an email, directly from the notification shade itself. And of course, there is Google Now, churning out cards with information you need when you need it. There are also a few Samsung related changes coming to your handset including Pop-up Play which helps you multitask by giving you the ability to move a video that you're viewing, all over the screen while certain apps play underneath it. Smart Stay uses the front-facing camera to monitor your eyes to see if they are still directed at the screen. If they are, your phone stays on. If not, your handset gets to go to sleep. Other changes include improvements to the camera, a new lock screen with customization options, new widgets from the Samsung Galaxy S III and two home screen modes.

Unfortunately, Modern Warfare 3 takes a much more overt and heavy-handed shot at wrenching your heartstrings, which doesn't go well. The outcome is so obvious from the moment the scene starts that you're left to watch dispassionately as the throwaway characters act out their lines and fall victim to tragedy (opting not to see disturbing content at the outset of the campaign will likely spare you this unpleasantness). Despite this emotional misstep, the campaign remains an engaging and superbly paced roller-coaster ride that brings the Modern Warfare story to a satisfying conclusion Florida Accountant Though the campaign is strictly single-player, the cooperative Special Ops mode returns after its debut in Modern Warfare 2, bringing with it plenty of opportunities to slaughter AI enemies with another player, split-screen or online. Boca Raton Plumber There are 16 one-off missions that complement the events of the campaign, letting you experience new facets of the global conflict in which you are embroiled. From tanking along in a Juggernaut suit to covering your ally with remote-controlled sentry turrets, there's a lot of variety here. Though even the longest missions can be completed in less than 10 minutes, the variable difficulty levels help Spec Ops missions provide hours of challenging combat. And if you prefer to continue your solo soldiering, you can run almost every mission by yourself and aim for a respectable spot on the online leaderboards.
