HTC One V heading to Virgin Mobile

It looks like Virgin Mobile is going to get another Android handset. We learned last week that they are getting the Alcatel Venture (though it was originally reported as the ZTE Venture). Now they’re getting a bit better of a handset with the HTC One V. We learned a while back that MetroPCS would get the One V. We’re looking at the same deal for Virgin: 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Best of all, it figures to be relatively cheap at $200. We should see it later this spring.

    That is a nice phone. I like the HTCs more than any other android device.

    My concern is wether or not it has enough internal storage to download more than 10 apps. Other than the Motorola Triumph, all the Android phones on the prepaid market had too little internal storage.

    Phil, most of them come with microSD cards, and all of them have microSD slots. You can offload most of the app’s data onto the SD card, which makes the lack of internal storage less of an issue.

    I have an Optimus V on Virgin Mobile, and even with a micro SD card, I still run into memory issues. Not all apps can be transferred to the SD card, and VM has many pre-loaded apps on the phone that eat up its memory.

    Overall, I’m looking forward to this phone, too. Hopefully it will be a nice step up from the Optimus V!

    Phil, I believe the Virgin Mobile HTC ONE V comes with a 2yr subscription to a 25GB dropbox account. You can move your photos and videos off the phone to this account, and from the account to your computer. The HTC ONE V seems to have a very nice camera for a cheap phone, and the Android interface seems to integrate well with syncing to the Dropbox account from what I’ve read. Besides this, you can purchase and install up to a 32GB microSD, for your apps. You might want to check me on all this, just google several “HTC ONE V reviews,” engadget is a nice one to watch.
