Virgin Mobile UK has announced the availability of the Nokia E63 on its network for GBP 149 (USD 215.58) on a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) basis and GBP 18 (USD 26.04) on a monthly basis. With this, Virgin Mobile has become the first network in the UK to offer a 3G QWERTY handset (Nokia E63) on a PAYG basis. Virgin will offer 3G Internet access (limited to 25 MB per day) for 30p (USD 0.43) a day. Additionally, the company will offer free mobile instant messenger on Nokia’s “affordable” E-series device for six months.

According to Virgin Mobile, the easy set-up guide of E63 will make access to e-mail services such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo mail far simpler. Some other features of the Nokia E63 include a 2-megapixel camera, music player, FM radio, Wi-Fi and expandable memory.
