HTC


and Cricket Wireless are teaming up to launch the
One V


on the network starting next Sunday, Sep. 2. The One V, which we
reviewed back in April


, is HTC’s leading entry-level device, bringing to the table a striking industrial design with an
HTC Legend


-style aluminum chin. On the inside, the One V is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and 512MB of RAM, with a 5MP camera around the back. We noted in our review that the One V packs one of the most impressive entry-level smartphone cameras around, thanks to HTC’s ImageSense tech.
On the software side, you’ve got Android 4.0
Ice Cream Sandwich


, backed up by a basic version of HTC Sense 4.0, as well as music playback enhancements through Beats Audio.
Cricket’s not saying how much it’ll be charging for the One V when it launches, but based on the rest of the carrier’s smartphone offerings, the One V looks set to become something of a hero device for Cricket in late 2012. Any Cricket fans out there? Let us know in the comments if you're tempted by HTC's latest aluminum-clad beast.
