Deal of the Week: HTC One V for $249 + FREE Delivery
The HTC One V is the first phone using Ice Cream Sandwich to be at a ridiculously low price point. For $249 you can’t go wrong, it even looks great using a similar shell to the very popular HTC Legend.This little Android phone definitely earns the place of MeansBlueReview.com’s deal of the week.
Kogan did the reverse of what a lot of eCommerce sites do, they marketed their own brand exclusively and then later added in the other big brands. They’ve done this well by pushing customers to their own products, which they would obviously make a larger cut on. The move was smart, being a tech geek myself I had heard and was a big follower of Kogan. From announcing that he would create the world’s first Android phone to applying for a job at McDonalds and even to charging IE7 customers a tax for purchasing on an ancient browser. At the moment Kogan is most famous for selling the iPad and at the cheapest price possible. It is also great to know that they are now selling some fantastic Android handsets.
