1 v RadioShacks no contract service to include HTC One V

RadioShack’s brick and mortar retailing model may need some changes if it intends to stay in business, and perhaps becoming a no-contract carrier is part of the plan.  Sure, there may be a lot of pay-as-you-go or no-contract carriers out there, but don’t count out RadioShack just yet.

RadioShack’s brick and mortar retailing model may need some changes if it intends to stay in business, and perhaps becoming a no-contract carrier is part of the plan.  Sure, there may be a lot of pay-as-you-go or no-contract carriers out there, but don’t count out RadioShack just yet.

Some recent leaks suggest that RadioShack is lining up some very competitive no-contract devices to go along with a bevy of other feature phones and smartphones. One of the devices is the HTC One V, an Android device that’s currently available on no-contract carriers such as Virgin Mobile.

Although the One V doesn’t boast high-end specs like the One X counterpart, it’ll be a nice pick up for anyone who doesn’t want to be tied down with a lengthy contract.

The One V will have a 3.7’’ (480 x 800) screen, a Snapdragon single core clocked at 1GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and Android 4.0 ICS to boot.

Currently, there are no details as to the pricings of RadioShack’s HTC One V—or any other RadioShack no-contract devices for that matter.  However, for the sake of speculations, RadioShack’s HTC One V should have a price tag of around $200 if it wants to compete with the likes of Virgin Mobile.

RadioShack is rumored to be shacking up with Cricket Wireless to launch its own no-contract service, and so we also expect various Cricket Wireless devices to also be a part of Radio Shack’s lineup.
