HTC One V Lands at Virgin Mobile

The iPhone 4 goes on sale today at Virgin Mobile, but if you’re more of an Android guy or gal or just can’t afford the iPhone’s $550 to $650 price tag, the carrier has another option for you.

The HTC One V is available now from Virgin Mobile for $199.99 without a contract. First introduced at Mobile World Congress, the One V is more of an entry-level smartphone and features a 3.7-inch touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera and 3G and Wi-Fi for connectivity options.

The handset is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, along with HTC’s Sense user interface. Included in the software is 25 gigabytes of free storage for two years on cloud-based service Dropbox.

In addition to Virgin Mobile stores, the One V will be available at Best Buy, RadioShack and Walmart in July and August. Virgin Mobile’s voice and data plans start at $35 per month for 300 anytime minutes and unlimited messaging and data.

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
