HTC today confirmed U.S availability plans for its One V smartphone.

The Android handset is now on sale with Virgin Mobile for $199 without a contract. It will come to U.S. Cellular on July 3 for $129 with service and later to a selection of smaller regional wireless providers that are part of the Associated Carrier Group.

First announced in February at Mobile World Congress , the One V is a lower-end version of HTC's flagship phone, the One X. Features include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 3.7-inch screen and 5-megapixel camera, a single-core 1GHz processor, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4GB of onboard storage, and a microSD card slot.

We'll have a full review just as soon as we can get our hands on a phone. In the meantime, though, check out the HTC One V review from our friends at CNET Asia.
