French said that they are able to get the device out quickly through MTN who were “really flexible”.
“There was an opening and we took it,” French said.
Vodacom has hinted at a June 2012 release of the HTC One X in an update posted to Twitter, and French said that the network will be offering the HTC One V and HTC One S as well.
It will include 25GB free storage on Dropbox, a cloud file sync service which usually offers 2GB of free storage to new users.
HTC will also be offering its Media Link HD accessory in South Africa, French said.
This device lets HTC One users wirelessly play content, including high definition video, to any TV that has an HDMI input. The “Mirror Mode” function isn’t available on the One V, however, according to the HTC website.
French said that they don’t have a recommended retail price available for the accessory yet, but they will have a single point of distribution in EMEA, Brightstar.
The first deliveries will be made in the next two weeks or so, with the retail release coming after that, French concluded.
