Virgin Mobile will launch their first music phone beginning in October. The Slider Sonic is based on Kyocera's Slider Remix with a few changes. The phone features a VGA camera, TransFlash slot (32 MB card included) and a music player that supports MP3 and WMA formats. Like the Snapper announced last week, the Slider Sonic includes an AOL Instant Messenger client. It also will include additional VirginXL content such as exclusive music videos and shorts from heavy.com. Virgin will sell a number of accessories for the Sonic including a music dock and a headset with music controls and a 3.5mm jack to plug in your own headphones.

Probably not. EV-DO is still fairly limited on the Sprint footprint, and I doubt Sprint wants to let Virgin eat into their backhaul. EV-DO would require some contract work and would end up an announcement in it's own right.
