Virgin Mobile Shuttle unboxing

Now that Virgin Mobile has finished the process of gobbling up Helio, they’ve started launching devices which utilize some of the partnerships the buyout brought to the table. The first one out the door is the Virgin Mobile Shuttle, which purportedly totes Buddy Beacon, a locational application that began its life on Helio handsets. I haven’t actually found it (or any other hints of Helio) on the handset, but I’ll keep an eye out and let you know whats up in the coming review.

Though there’s not all the much box to be seen, we’ve gone ahead and stripped it down and documented the process in photos.
