JukeB handset headed to Virgin MobileVirgin Mobile users, it looks like the Motorola Titanium will not be the first Android Gingerbread handset to arrive on the carrier, but rather a relatively obscure handset called the JukeB. As the name implies, there’s some sort of music/audio theme surrounding the device, but as to what exactly makes it a music device still remains unknown.

It will be sporting a QWERTY keyboard in candy bar form, much like Blackberry devices and will be running on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3.4. Apart from the QWERTY keyboard and Gingerbread 2.3.4 platform, the rest of the device is far from impressive.

Manufactured by TCT Mobile, the same company that manufacturers Alcatel handsets, the JukeB measures in at 119x58x12.43mm and weighs 122 grams. It sports a camera at the back (resolution is unknown at this point) and a rather disappointing QVGA display with 320×240 resolution.

No word on when it is expected to be made available or how much it will cost, but based on the specs we highly doubt it will be fetching a high price, but for Virgin Mobile users who are looking for an Android handset with Gingerbread running right out of the box, perhaps the JukeB could be worth considering.
