Virgin Mobile is now offering the HTC One V. This is the first U.S. carrier to pick up this device, which sells for a surprisingly low price.
This HTC model runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with the HTC Sense 4.0 UI layered on top. It has a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor with 512MB of RAM. There is 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot.
The One V features a 3.7-inch WVGA (800 x 480) touchscreen. It comes with a 5MP rear-facing camera and Beats Audio.
Virgin Mobile is a subsidiary of Sprint, and wireless service is provided by this carrier’s voice and data nation-wide network.
The smartphone is now available for $200 on the Virgin Mobile website and at local retailers, rolling out to national retailers Best Buy, RadioShack, and Walmart through July and August. This carrier offers unlimited data and messaging plans starting at $35 per month with 2.5GB of data transfers.
This handset made its debut in Europe earlier this year, and it’s expected to be introduced by more carrier in the U.S. this summer.
