I was told that their first aircraft was supposed to be used to launch the new Mt Isa route. For every A330 Virgin Australia gets for its flagship Coast-to-Coast service, the 737s would be turned down to the Golden Triangle and E190s will be refurbished and placed on the Mt Isa, Capital Connect and other regional routes. It doesn't look like so, yet. I currently haven't heard about any renovation for its E190s. Don't worry, I'm sure AusBT will cover everything about the aircraft refurbishment like what they did for the 737s and A330s.

E190 aircraft will start to get reurbished for business and economy class plus a divider from November and will be completed by March 2013. Business class will be a 2-1 layout.
