One V (GSM) | HTC
Sony wasted no time showing off its new relationship with HTC. Behind glass (sadly not playable) at its E3 booth we spotted HTC One X, One S, and One V running what's purported to be PlayStation Mobile (née PlayStation Suite).
It hasn't been terribly clear if or when the HTC One V would launch in the US, but HTC's working to firm things up — the company just announced that the One V will be coming to "a variety of US partners this summer."
Carphone Warehouse and Amazon's UK site are both taking pre-orders for the HTC One V, with an expected release date during the week of April 23rd.

HTC's One series appears ready for primetime, as the company has just announced all three of its new Android handsets wil launch in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on Monday of next week.
The One series represents HTC’s attempt to get back on course, both in terms of hardware and software. We spoke with HTC's Director of User Experience, Drew Bamford, about how Sense 4 signals the company's response to user feedback and a simplification that mirrors the hardware strategy behind the One phones
HTC has graced MWC with three new Android smartphones, forming its all-new HTC One series. The One X, One S, and One V all run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a Sense 4 skin on top.
HTC's One V is the "budget" offering in its 2012 lineup and has the specs to match: a WVGA screen, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, and 4 gigs of storage. There's nothing embarrassing about a phone that's not featuring the latest specs or the thinnest body and that goes double for the One V, which takes the classic HTC Legend form factor and updates it for 2012.
Bringing up the rear in HTC's 2012 cavalcade of new phones is the One V, a 3.7-inch Android 4.0 smartphone with an aluminum unibody design that evokes the well-liked Legend handset of 2010.
