This won’t really matter to many people, but small U.S. carrier Cellular South announced today that it is going to offer an Android based smartphone to its customers this year. Details are non-existant at this…
Well now, this is a pleasant surprise. Today Cellular South announced that it is now offering the Motorola Milestone to its customers for $149.99 (after mail-in rebate). The Milestone name had been used only by the GSM/UMTS version of the CDMA Motorola DROID that Verizon Wireless offers. This Milestone, however, runs on CDMA networks, which means it has basically a DROID with a different name.
The Cellular South Milestone ships with Android 2.1 loaded, and offers the same 3.7-inch touchscreen display as the Verizon model. Other highlights include a 5mp camera with dual-LED flash, support for 32GB microSD cards (8GB card included), and the ability to work with both wired 3.5mm and wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones.
The phone should show up on the www.cellularsouth.com website and in Cellular South retail stores today.
