HTC One V hits Cricket on Sept. 2

HTC and Cricket Wireless are teaming up to launch the One V on the network starting next Sunday, Sep. 2. The One V, which we reviewed back in April, is HTC’s leading entry-level device, bringing to the table a striking industrial design with an HTC Legend-style aluminum chin. On the inside, the One V is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and 512MB of RAM, with a 5MP camera around the back. We noted in our review that the One V packs one of the most impressive entry-level smartphone cameras around, thanks to HTC’s ImageSense tech.

On the software side, you’ve got Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, backed up by a basic version of HTC Sense 4.0, as well as music playback enhancements through Beats Audio.

Cricket’s not saying how much it’ll be charging for the One V when it launches, but based on the rest of the carrier’s smartphone offerings, the One V looks set to become something of a hero device for Cricket in late 2012. Any Cricket fans out there? Let us know in the comments if you're tempted by HTC's latest aluminum-clad beast.

  • Cool
  • My mom was thinking of switching to virgin mobile and getting the one v but I think she might want to stay on cricket depending on their price.
  • Everything I read says $270
  • Cricket is much worse then virgin. More expensive and much worse coverage.
  • Here in Kansas city price is the only difference in service.
  • For how much $600?
