Looks like the HTC One V is officially making its way onto its second carrier in just one week. U.S. Cellular today announced that its version of the HTC One V is now available for purchase online, with pricing set at $129.99 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate. The One V is also available for $249.99 on a prepaid basis. Customers interested in snagging a One V from a brick and mortar U.S. Cellular store will be able to do so on July 6.
HTC's One V features a 3.7-inch 480x800 touchscreen on its face along with a 5-megapixel camera on its rear. Inside you'll find 4GB storage, 512MB RAM and a microSD slot. Also included is Android 4.0 beneath HTC's Sense 4 UI and support for U.S. Cellular's 3G network. The One V is joining U.S. Cellular's roster the same month that the Galaxy S III is also expected to launch, but for folks that prefer a smaller (or chin-clad) smartphone, the One V could be worth looking into.
