Virgin Mobile now has its eyes set on getting itself some Ice Cream Sandwich.
The carrier is planning the launch of the new Android 4.0 powered HTC One V for the late spring. What's even more enticing is that consumers will be able to pick up the device for just $200.
"We already knew the device would more than likely come in under the $200 price tag being the more budget friendly option in the line of three new devices unveiled by HTC at MWC," wrote 9to5 Google.
Specifications on the One V include a 1GHz processor, Android 4.0 (with Sense 4.0), a 3.7-inch WVGA display, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory. It also comes with Beats Audio and a 5-megapixel rear shooter.
The One V is one of three devices by HTC that debuted at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The other two smartphones in the line are the One S and One X.
The One X, the most powerful of these, features a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, a 4.7-inch Super LCD display with 1280 x 720 pixels, and an 8-megapixel camera that includes an ImageChip that kicks up picture processing. It will also be 4G LTE and has Beats Audio software pre-installed.
The One X will be released through AT&T sometime next month.
The One S is slightly less powerful, but still sports some impressive features including a 4.3-inch display with 960 x 540 resolution, a dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor, an 8-megapixel camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It will be released through T-Mobile sometime this spring.
All three of these handsets will feature Google's latest operating software and the One X will be one of the first devices on the market to include a quad-core processor.
