HTC One V launched by SaskTel, can be yours for $270


Ice Cream Sandwich has arrived on the shelves at SaskTel. The HTC One V has been released – the second carrier to launch the device in Canada – for free on a 3-year and hits a $269.99 outright. This device has Beats Audio, Sense 4.0, 3.7-inch Super LCD display, 5MP camera and packs a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor. Respectable specs and price point for an entry-level Android.

    Great price. Now if all the carriers price phones like this or a bit more then this but not too much.

    Anyways ill buy this as a back up phone if anything happens to my current phone.

    Spend the extra $100 and get a Galaxy Nexus carriers really need to lower of contract prices because of that

    Personally, i think that the total cost of two HTC One V should be equal to the total cost of one Galaxy Nexus.

    i am currently seeings Expansys’ Galaxy Nexus ring in at $487.70 with HST and shipping included. Remove shipping and it is $462.70 instead. This would work out to a reasonable all-inclusive price of $231.35 per HTC One V, or $204.73 before taxes.

    Maybe that’s a little low, but rounding it up at $225 would be a fair way to compete against Samsung. HTC will have HTC Watch and other services to make more money later.

      The Galaxy Nexus is currently $409.51 on expansys, $447.94 with taxes and shipping.

      I think given the quality build materials, it’s unrealistic to expect it to go for less than $225 – $250.

    Just out of curiosity I’d like to see a comparison between this and a Nexus S. They have pretty similar specs, so I’m wondering how a mid-2012 budget phone compares to a late-2010 flagship.

      I’d also like to see how it compares to the Desire S .

    Pricing between 250-300 is fine. Stop moaning.

      Pretty sure it’s only Perrier that’s whining currently…
