Australian Android blog Ausdroid first stumbled on Virgin Mobile's dedicated page for the HTC One X, which tells consumers to "check back in early April for updates."

Despite not launching until next month, however, Virgin has published its pricing for the new smartphone. It will be available for $0 on Virgin's $59 fair go plan over 24 months. The plan includes $700 worth of calls and MMS messages, unlimited SMS messages to all networks and 3GB of data per month. All Virgin Mobile plans also include unlimited SMS, MMS and calls to other Virgin Mobile users.

While Virgin isn't the first to reveal it will sell the One X, it is the first telco to publicly reveal pricing and availability. Telstra is widely expected to launch a slightly different 4G version of the phone, the HTC One XL, while Optus will sell the regular 3G version along with Virgin.

Unveiled just last month at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, Spain, the HTC One X is the company's first smartphone to feature a quad-core processor, NVIDIA's 1.5GHz Tegra 3 chip. The One X also has a large 4.7in Super IPS LCD2 with a HD resolution of 1280x720 and will come standard with a Near Field Communications (NFC) chip, 32GB of storage and an 8-megapixel camera with backside-illuminated sensor.

The One X also marks a new design trend by HTC. It uses a single block of polycarbonate plastic, the same material found on Nokia's Lumia 800 and N9 smartphones.

The HTC One X runs the latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version of Google's Android operating system and is skinned with HTC's Sense 4.0 UI.

Virgin Mobile's pricing for the HTC One X is listed below:

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

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.

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.
