Virgin Mobile USA has been all about the low- to midrange in its smartphone efforts thus far, but it sounds like that could be about to change in the not-too-distant future. In a survey to customers gauging their opinions of different potential brand names, the Sprint subsidiary talks about a device with a 4.1-inch WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera, HDMI-out, and a

core -- specs that easily put it head and shoulders above the Samsung

and LG
Optimus V

. We can't think of any CDMA devices out there right now that line up with this, though both


have used 4.1-inch displays on Android devices recently. Would be pretty crazy to see Dell make a CDMA play on Virgin of all carriers, wouldn't it?
