Virgin Mobile to launch Ocean 2 on March 3?

I was content with letting this press release slip into my trashcan but thought to give it a quick glance and I’m glad I did. Not because it has anything to do with Britney Spears, but the fact that Virgin Mobile dropped launch details surrounding Helio’s unreleased Ocean 2.

VM is sponsoring Britney’s “Circus” tour which starts on March 3 with a private dress rehearsal on March 2 in New Orleans. A group of fans will be able to chronicle their time with an Ocean 2, says VM. The launch date isn’t set in stone according to the press release, but I’m going out on a limb and calling it now.

As part of the sponsorship, some lucky fans will have the chance to catch a sneak peek at one of the most highly anticipated tours of the year, by attending Britney’s final private dress rehearsal in New Orleans on March 2.

In conjunction with sponsorship of the “Circus” tour, Virgin Mobile USA plans to launch its new Ocean 2 multimedia device. Select fans at the private show will be given an Ocean 2 to chronicle the event. This “Ocean 2 Camera Crew” can blog, IM, email, post to social networking sites and send photos from this one mobile phone to share with friends and fans.
