The chin is in at Virgin Mobile — the Sprint-owned prepaid wireless carrier has quietly launched one of HTC’s latest and greatest smartphones, the entry-level-but-quite-capable HTC One V. Complete with a throwback Android chin beneath the device’s 3.7-inch WVGA display, the One V features a 1GHz Snapdragon S2 processor, a 5-megapixel camera with HTC ImageChip technology, 4GB of internal storage, microSDHC support, Beats Audio, 512MB of RAM and Sense 4 on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Virgin Mobile subscribers new and old can now purchase the sleek smartphone for just $199 without any contract, and plans start at just $35 per month for 300 voice minutes and unlimited messaging and data, though data speeds are throttled after 2.5GB of usage during a single billing period.
