The HTC One V, as expected, has launched on American carrier U.S. Cellular today.
U.S. Cellular has made the price pretty affordable so those hoping for a a decent price for the carrier’s version of the HTC One V likely will not be disappointed
The phone is available online today and those looking to pick one up will be greeted with a $129.99 price tag that comes after a $100 mail-in rebate. That price of course comes with the signing of a new two-year contract, a far cry from the $199.99 off-contract price that it goes for at Virgin Mobile.
Those looking to snag the HTC One V in-stores will be able to do so starting in just a few days on July 6th.
The HTC One V, the mid-level device that is apart of the HTC One Series of smartphones, is headed to U.S. Cellular and several other carriers soon.
HTC has announced that the device will be headed to U.S. Cellular, in addition to Virgin Mobile and Bell, in Canada where the phone has already launched.
It’s unclear right now just how much U.S. Cellular is going to be looking to charge for the HTC One V because the phone has yet to make an official appearance on the carrier’s website.
This also means that a release date is up in the air as well.
However, because HTC has made [...]
The HTC One V, which HTC said would be hitting pre-paid carriers this summer, appears to be close to launching on Virgin Mobile.
According to DroidDog, the HTC One V will apparently be hitting Virgin Mobile sometime during the middle of June.
A specific release date is still unknown although if the timing is true, we should be hearing from Virgin Mobile soon.
It generally offers a pre-order on its new smartphones.

The HTC One V is a member of the HTC One Series of smartphones, which includes both the HTC One X and HTC One S, that were announced back in February at the Mobile World Congress. And while both the One X and the One S have landed in the United States, the HTC One V has not.
We were able to go hands-on with the HTC One V at this year’s CTIA 2012 in New Orleans and we came away impressed, same as we did the first time that we laid eyes on the mid-range smartphone.
The HTC One V represents the lower-end of the HTC One Series although it’s hard to categorize the HTC One V as being a low-end smartphone as it has some pretty likeable things on board.
HTC has announced that its only member of the HTC One Series yet to hit the United States, the HTC One V, will do so at some point this summer. It has also revealed that it will be hitting a ‘variety’ of U.S. carriers although the manufacturer didn’t exactly specify who would be getting it.
The HTC One V will be the third HTC One phone to hit the United States following in the footsteps of the HTC One X for AT&T and the HTC One S for T-Mobile’s network. And even though HTC remained mum on the carriers the One V will be headed to, we think we have a pretty good idea.
Back in February, HTC seemingly revealed which U.S. carriers would be getting [...]
While power users often dismiss entry level offerings in the smartphone space due to their anemic performance, recent advances in processing and graphics chipsets along with more efficiently tuned software code may make the HTC One V a standout crowd pleaser. Unlike the HTC One X flagship and the mid-range HTC One S, the One V won’t come with a high resolution display, capping out with a 480 X 800 resolution, but it does hold its own ground when put to the test.
On paper, the HTC One V would be a great smartphone for a year or two ago with a single-core 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal storage. However, where it matters is real world performance and Netbook [...]
