The less powerful, but still impressive, HTC One V will be arriving at Cricket Wireless on September 2nd, which, as per Cricket Wireless’ business plan, will mean you can grab yourself a nice new smartphone sans contract. While the One V doesn’t enjoy the upper echelon of quad-core and dual-core processors that the rest of the line boasts, it isn’t exactly underpowered, sporting a Snapdragon S3 1 GHz processor. You’ll also get a 3.7” LCD screen, Android 4.0, a 5 MP rear-facing camera, and a host of software and apps that HTC and Cricket probably care about way more than you do.
Word is that the HTC One V will hit Cricket Wireless stores on September 2nd, and will retail for the non-subsidized price of $270. For a non-subsidized phone, that’s not too shabby, considering the One V is a decent enough smartphone. If you value not having a contract highly, it’s worth thinking about.
