Nokia Lumia Windows Phones headed to Optus and VirginMobile

Nokia Lumia 710

The Nokia Lumia 710 and 800 Windows Phones became available for pre-order today (or was it yesterday?) through the Australian wireless carrier Optus. Plans range from $19 to $79 with varying features and if you're in the market for either Windows Phone, WPDownUnder has worked up a rather detailed analysis of each plan. Pre-orders placed by February 26th will ship on March 1st.

VirginMobile, who will be offering the Lumia 710, has yet to release plan pricing and details. It has also been confirmed that select Nokia partners in Australia will have an unlocked version of the Lumia 710 available in March that will be compatible with Telstra's and Vodafone's 3G networks.

March seems to be shaping up to be a big month in Australia for the Nokia Lumia line of Windows Phones.

What would you recommend between the Lumia 710, Omnia W and HTC Radar?

q21701 says:

isn't Virgin Mobile just a pre-paid division of Sprint? Doesn't that mean Sprint will also be offering Te Lumia?!
