HTC One V arriving on TELUS June 8th

Although the device has been available on their "budget" brand Koodoo Mobile for a while now, TELUS themselves are preparing to launch the HTC One V come June 8th. As we learned in our review of the device, HTC has gone back to their roots with the HTC One V making it an entry-level throwback to the HTC Legend and we mean that lovingly. With it, you'll be getting Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm processor, 512MB RAM and finally 4GB of built-in storage should you decide to pick one up. Right now, TELUS pricing looks a little something like this:

  • No-term: $289.99
  • 1-year contact: $229.99
  • 2-year contract: $189.99
  • 3-year contract: $29.99

Those numbers are of course subject to change until the official announcement comes from TELUS but they seem quite reasonable all things considered. Make sure you check out the full review we did up if this one is on your radar and we'll be sure to let you all know when it goes official.

  • $189.99 on a two-year contract is not what I'd consider a budget phone. TELUS really needs someone with common sense to think about their subsidized pricing.
  • Yes, that's ridiculous. Unless they're actually giving you money to use their network, tying yourself with a contract for more than one year is stupid.
  • They did. Sign for 3 years.
  • Hmm what is the "Play Shop", surely its supposed to be play store.
  • The date is all wrong too...!
