HTC One V to be available via Cricket Wireless on September 2nd

HTC One V to be available via Cricket Wireless on September 2nd
One of the big changes for those who prefer to use, or are forced to use, a pre-paid carrier is the type of handsets that are available for purchase, For example, who ever thought that you would be able to use an Apple iPhone on a pre-paid carrier? Now, HTC is offering the bottom model of the HTC One totem pole, the HTC One V, through Cricket Wireless. While we know the launch date of the phone on Cricket, which is September 2nd, what we don't know is the price of the handset on the carrier. We could use Virgin Mobile as a guide. Last month the pre-paid operator started offering the HTC One V for $199.

The HTC One V is equipped with a 3.7 inch Super LCD-2 display with WVGA resolution and pixel density of 252ppi. Under the hood is a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor with 512MB of RAM on board. The 4GB of native storage can be expanded with the use of the 32GB capacity microSD slot and there is a 5MP camera on back that captures video in 720p at 30fps. The 1500mAh battery keeps the lights on and HTC Sense 4.0 is running on top of Ice Cream Sandwich.

The HTC One V comes with HTC's ImageSense technology that allows you to take a snapshot while you're shooting video and will deliver high quality photos under conditions with low-light. Those Cricket Wireless customers who love to take pictures with their handset might want to give the HTC One V a  look when it becomes available one week from this Sunday.

UPDATE: Published reports say that Cricket will be charging $269.99 for the device, quite a bit more than the price Virgin is asking for the model

I just don't get why/how this device can run ICS & HTC Sense 4.0 on 512Mb RAM, but devices like the Evo 4G & Evo Shift cannot.

Because it's not actually Sense 4, it's incredibly cut down (no leap view, only 5 home screens, everything is 2D, many widgets and apps cut out) in order to fit in the phone and run smoothly.

Virgin Mobile currently has that phone on sale at 20% off. The list price is $199 so the phone is now going for $160.
