HTC One V now available at Optus

Low-end HTC One V is available through Optus from today

Optus will exclusively sell the HTC One V smartphone in Australia from today.

The One V is the fourth HTC 'One' series phone to sell in Australia, following the launch of the One X (Optus, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile), the One XL (Telstra) and the One S (Telstra, Optus, Virgin) earlier this year.

The One V is a low-end device but has an aluminium unibody design made famous by the HTC Legend, a phone that was sold in Australia in 2010.

It features most of the same software enhancements used across the entire One range of handsets.

"The HTC One V offers the complete package of features for users wanting a beautifully designed, compact and affordable smartphone," said HTC Australia and New Zealand's Country Manager, Ben Hodgson.

The HTC One V has a 5-megapixel camera compared to the 8-megapixel variant on the other One models. However, it retains much of the software features from these models.

The One V can take a photo while shooting HD video, will capture still images from already recorded video and has a burst mode that allows continuous shooting.

The One V also comes standard with Beats Audio qualities, a result of HTC's "strategic partnership" with the Beats By Dr. Dre audio company.

The HTC One V can be purchased for $0 upfront on the $30 Optus plan over 24 months. The plan includes $200 worth of calls, SMS and MMS messages, 200MB of data and unlimited access to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, eBay and Foursquare social networking services.

The One V is also available on Optus' $50, $60, and $80 plans.
