It's that time of the year again, when we're both happy and sad, excited and disappointed all at the same time. Last year's Mobile World Congress was all about three things: Android, 3D and speed offered by emerging dual-core processors. This year's show was not that much different at all, if you come to think of it. It's safe to assume that everyone who was there -- or following our MWC coverage -- understands that, again, Android was all over the place. With or without Ice Cream Sandwich on smartphones or tablets, the Google platform -- and its OEM partners -- has flooded the show floors ...

As we got into the Mobile World Congress late last month, HTC announced its new One-series Androids, including the One V. Carved out of a solid slab of aluminum, the One V borrows much of its looks from 2010's HTC Legend. The handset as we got to look at it was just a plain shade of gray, but the discovery of some images showing alternate facades for the One V now suggests we'll see the handset available in a variety of colors.

However, HTC didn't ...

There's also a new HTC One V in HTC's new "One" line-up, from which we've already seen the HTC One X and the HTC One S. However, despite HTC going public and announcing the One V, this new phone has been a real rara avis in Barcelona. We've finally managed to find a prototype which we were allowed to capture on camera, though with the mention that the phone can't be turned on. When it will reach the market it will deliver "the same experience as the One X and the One S" but until then we're left with looking at its HTC Legend lines, unibody design and hardware details found in the video below.
