Virgin Mobile Announces HTC Evo V 4G For May 31st At $299.99


Before you run off thinking this is a re-branded HTC One X or HTC Evo 4G LTE, hold your horses, it’s not.  The device is more of an Evo 3D with some slight modifications to accommodate Virgin’s network.  This will be marked as Virgin Mobile’s first “4G” device to hit the carrier.  The company is offering a $35 plan with unlimited data and 300 minutes of talk time.  The hardware offers a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, a 3D camera on the backside, a 1.3 mp front facing camera, a 5 meg camera on the backside as a point-and-shoot, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.  So what’s going to make this device stand out from the rest? Consider the fact that the device will launch with ICS 4.0 on-board and that just might be enough for some people.  However, note that it will not house the latest version of Sense UI, 4.0 as seen on the One family of devices but rather 3.6.  If you’re on Virgin’s network and have been wanting a “big boy” phone for some time, this might be as close as you’re going to get to one for now.  The device is slated for a May 31st launch and will go for $299.99 on contract. Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below.
