$129.99 HTC One V available now online for U.S. Cellular customers, in stores July 6th
The HTC One V is the less imposing model of the Taiwan based manufacturer's flagship One series. Earlier on Tuesday, we told you that the handset was now available for Virgin Mobile customers at a price of $199.99 off contract. The purchase of the phone without a contract would fit in with Virgin's pre-paid monthly data plans. In addition to Virgin Mobile, today the HTC One V also became available for U.S. Cellular, a regional carrier that is rapidly gaining clout. It is just one of five U.S. carriers initially receiving the Samsung Galaxy S III. Virgin Mobile is a pre-paid carrier without contracts to sign, which allows you to pay month to month. U.S. Cellular is a post-paid carrier which locks you in with a 2-year contract which means monthly payments.

Starting today, the HTC One V is available from U.S. Cellular's website for just $129.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a signed two-year pact. While the price of the phone is lower than the price on Virgin Mobile, with U.S. Cellular's deal you are locking yourself up with the carrier for a couple of years and you are also laying out more money for the phone because of the mail-in rebate. If you have already decided to buy the HTC One V, but you haven't figured out which carrier better suits your needs, you will need to dig deep within your soul. If you're the type that will get tired of a phone after a few months and want to buy a newer model, you probably would rather not get locked into a 2-year pact. On the other hand, if you're the type that sticks with a phone until it is all beat up, you might be the kind that thrives with the 2-year contract.

The HTC One V is equipped with a 3.7 inch Super LCD 2 screen with WVGA resolution and pixel density of 252ppi. 512MB of RAM is on board as is the 4GB of native storage. Thankfully there is a 32GB capacity microSD slot to help you add storage. The 1500 maH battery keeps the lights on and on back is a 5MP camera with an LED flash that captures video in 720p at 30fps. Android 4.0.3 is installed with Sense 4 running on top. Not only does it include Beats Audio technology, it also will run over U.S. Cellular's 3G network which is said by the caarrier to have the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier.While the HTC One V is available from U.S. Cellular's website now, it will be in the carrier's stores starting July 6th.
