Virgin Mobile to Offer HTC One V Smartphone
Virgin Mobile USA is offering the HTC One V, a device to help customers stay connected, take and share photos, keep up on email, and enjoy sound – exactly like most other mobile brands offer.
The new HTC One V on Virgin Mobile is another smartphone for multitaskers and music buffs and is now available for $199.99 on virginmobileusa.com and at local retailers, rolling out to national retailers Best Buy, RadioShack and Walmart through July and August.
Its features, according to the company, include:
Camera with HTC ImageSense brings improvements to every part of the camera, including the lens, the sensor and the software, even integrating a new custom HTC ImageChip. The enhancements combine to deliver fast image capture, beautiful photos under adverse conditions, including low light, no light and bright backlight, and with Video Pic, the ability to concurrently capture 720p HD video and still images.
Authentic Sound with Beats by Dr. Dre Audio offers authentic sounds for music and videos to games and YouTube. With built-in software on the HTC One V, customers can connect to a computer, and HTC’s Sync Manager software automatically installs to simplify moving music and playlists to your phone from your music library.
HTC Sense 4 also lets customers automatically save photos and videos to Dropbox, then share that content directly from the Gallery. Dropbox also makes it easy to edit and share files. When signing up with a Dropbox subscription on your HTC One series phone, you’ll receive 25GB of Dropbox space free for two years, says the company.
Using the latest version of HTC Sense 4 integrated with Android operating system (4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich), the HTC One V comes with a 3.7-inch screen, a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera and 1500mAh embedded battery. The announcement was made Friday, June 29.
