Noon News: Free Spotify Unlimited on Virgin Media, Samsung Galaxy S2 White on Vodafone, Anonymous Targets BART

Virgin Media and Spotify have teamed up to offer an exclusive package for existing Virgin Media customers, a 12 month subscription to Spotify Unlimited although there's some confusion over what exact Spotify package is included. Virgin Media has mentioned on its offer page that the Spotify Unlimited package is worth £4.99 per month, but then claims further down the same page that the cost is usually £9.99 per month, which is what the Premium package is priced at.

Vodafone has added the white version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 to its "Coming Soon" page; the device will be available either online or in store. But, Vodafone only has a "coming soon" holding page for the smartphone which doesn't contain any details regarding pricing or release date.

The successor to one of the bestselling surprise mobile hits of 2010, the Orange San Francisco, has gone on sale as the Orange Monte Carlo for £149.99, a price that excludes the compulsory £10 topup. The Monte Carlo, which is also known as the ZTE Skate, first appeared back in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and was placed on pre-order from Orange back in June 2011.

Anonymous strikes yet again and this time the target is San Francisco BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) transport authority. Anonymous has revealed that the blocking of cell phone services at some of the transit stations to disrupt the planned demonstrations over a police shooting is the main reason behind the hack.
