Forum Added for the HTC One V
With all the excitement surrounding the launch of HTC’s flagship One X, One XL, and One S phones, it’s easy to forget that there are other phones in the HTC One lineup. Never fear, however, as we haven’t forgotten about HTC’s new chin-laden device.
While the 1.0 GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 may not pack the same punch as what’s found in its dual- and quad-core siblings and its 3.7″ WVGA screen doesn’t pack in a ridiculous number of pixels, the One V may very well offer the right combination of screen size, speed, build quality, and price for those who don’t demand the absolute bleeding edge in mobile technology. Plus, let’s not forget that that this phone comes loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the thankfully subdued Sense 4.0—an update many HTC devices are still waiting for.
Head over to the newly created forum to get in on the discussion.

It's a slippery slope...
