HTC and Cricket Wireless have just announced that the carrier will offer the HTC One V, the little brother in HTC’s new One series, starting September 2.
Cricket has yet to carry an HTC phone. However, HTC has long planned that this phone would be more of a pre-paid offering, with T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular carrying the phone on-contract and Virgin and MetroPCS offering the One V as a pre-paid option. Now, obviously, Cricket Wireless has joined the ranks.
The One V is the smallest in HTC’s One line, but it happens to be my favorite.
It has a 3.7-inch LCD display, a 1GHz processor and runs Sense 4. It also has a cute little chin down at the bottom of its unibody design.
It’s also worth noting that Beats Audio integration (a staple of HTC’s phones) should pair nicely with Cricket’s Muve Music subscriber base, which has unlimited downloads of their favorite music.
The phone is going for $199 at Virgin Mobile, so you can likely expect the same price at Cricket, though the press release did not disclose pricing information.
