One X and One S get all the headlines, but let's not forget about the junior member of HTC's new family, the One V. The "budget" phone has yet to see a subsidized release alongside its more expensive brothers in the UK, but a new listing at Carphone Warehouse indicates that the One V will be available starting the week of April 23rd. The online retailer is selling the phone on-contract for O2, Vodafone and Orange, with on-contract tariffs starting as low as £20.50. At present there's no price for an unlocked phone, but elsewhere it's going for about £200 before taxes.

Verizon phone after April 22nd? Then plan to spend a little more money: Verizon announced that they're adding a $30 "upgrade fee" for existing customers who want to get a new phone and renew their two-year contract. The fee will be enacted on all returning customers in two weeks, though you apparently won't have to pay it... if you pony up for an unsubsidized phone. For several hundred dollars more, on phones that are already considerably more expensive than their counterparts on other networks. Hooray.
Wildfire S has just been announced as available starting today headed to MetroPCS as their first HTC Android smartphone. Also available on T-Mobile and US Cellular the Wildfire S from MetroPCS will be only $179 without a contract. That is the outright price for this decent little phone.
DROID RAZR's sexy hardware without tying yourself down with a two-year contract? Nobody said being a free spirit was cheap: the phone will cost $649.99 from Verizon without a new contract or renewal. The news was broken by Droid-Life, who got a look at the DROID RAZR's listing in Verizon's internal device database. All things considered, that's about what we expected for the DROID RAZR. Over in the UK they'll be paying £454.80, or about $716 USD. It's still pretty darn expensive for a smartphone, but not stupendously so, when you consider that the cheapest iPhone 4S is the same price while offering a whole lot less in the hardware department. Kevlar beats glass, in case anyone was wondering. A qHD Super AMOLED screen, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4G LTE data speeds and a 7.7mm frame should make this a hard decision, even with the equally impressive Galaxy Nexus coming soon. The DROID RAZR's introductory price for those of us that toil under contractual obligation is $299.99, and pre-orders begin tomorrow, October 27th. The phone itself will ship "no later than" November 10th. The phone will sell internationally as the "Motorola RAZR", and in most major markets should be available around the same time. So what do you think - too expensive, a bargain or right on the money? Check out our hands-on of the Motorola DROID RAZR: Motorola DROID RAZR hands-on: [vms 9b2541ff53db39f407a9] [device id=1739]
HTC Thunderbolt and a few other phones at Verizon Wireless are on sale now until June 12th. It looks like Verizon is holding a private sale on many devices for what they are calling "Loyal Customers". This may mean long time subscribers, or multi-line customers but apparently certain people have received emails and texts regarding this sale.
