HTC One V is coming to Virgin Mobile in the next couple weeks attached with a $200 price point?
Our friends across the border in Canada have been enjoying every bit of the HTC One V, as several mobile carriers are currently selling the smartphone. Previously, it was mentioned that it would also be making its presence known stateside sometime this summer, but thus far, nothing has come to light regarding carrier availability.

Well, today’s rumor hints that Sprint subsidiary Virgin Mobile will be getting the HTC One V, and even better, the wait for it doesn’t seem to be too far away. Indeed, people are probably going bonkers about the iPhone’s impending availability with the carrier, but the HTC One V doesn’t seem like it won’t be backing down one bit.

For starters, it’s alleged that the handset will be coming to Virgin Mobile within the next couple of weeks. On top of that even, it’s rumored to be attached with a tempting $200 no-contract price point, which is considerably easier on the pockets when compared to the wallet busting tally of $600 and up for the iPhone 4S. Knowing what’s coming along with the HTC One V, it’s undoubtedly going to attract a lot of attention if it does indeed launch at that price point.

As much as we’d love to see it come to fruition at that price point, we simply need to wait at this point for an official confirmation before going bonkers over it. Nevertheless, with the official first day of summer quickly approaching, we’re certain we’ll be hearing an announcement about its availability in the US soon.

This has been on their site (virginmobile.com/usa) for the past week now. Price point is $299. Still, not to bad. I'll probably ditch my Triumph for this.

You've got the wrong phone - the HTC retailing on Virgin Mobile is a 4G phone with 3D camera capabilities.

The HTC One V is a different phone then the Evo V 4G. They have similar names but the Evo V 4G is a rebranded Evo 3D.

Exactly. In fact, the first bunch that got out still had the Sprint logo on them and were quickly scooped up & recalled from the Radio Shacks that had them ... it's also why Best Buy doesn't have them yet.
