Fresh from the very successful launch of the top of the line Samsung Galaxy S3, U.S. Cellular is hoping to jolt its Android roster some more by introducing two new mid-range phones from Motorola, the Electrify 2 and Defy XT.
The Motorola Electrify 2 is the sequel to Moto’s Photon 4G, which was released a year ago for Sprint. At the heart of the phone is a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, though we’re not sure what SoC it’s sporting since it’s not mentioned. It also boasts a 4.3-inch ColorBoost display, 1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, microSD card slot, 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p HD camcorder, and 1,780mAh battery.
Although the big four carriers in the US have already released their variants of the Samsung Galaxy S3, some folks are still waiting for one of the regional carriers to start offering the super phone. The first smaller carrier to step up to the plate is U.S. Cellular, which has officially started taking orders of the Galaxy S3 on its website.
You can now buy the 16GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S3 for $199.99 (after a mail-in rebate), with both the Pebble Blue and Ceramic White color available to choose from. Note that the price requires a data plan.
As for those who like their phone’s internal storage to be bigger, the 32GB model of the Galaxy S3 is up for [...]
Less than 24 hours after reporting on Virgin Mobile, the first US carrier to sell HTC’s One V, the entry-level ICS-powered smartphone has been officially confirmed as hitting other networks across the States.
According to an HTC press release issued earlier today, the One V should already be up for sale at US Cellular, but also on twenty-seven regional carriers which are members of something called ACG (Associated Carriers Group).
As far as we can tell, US Cellular’s website still doesn’t mention anything about the One V’s availability, but it’s safe to assume that the handheld will pop up online in a matter of hours or in a day or two, at the latest. Also, if [...]
Now that the US big guys have all announced their plans for the Galaxy S3, you might have already decided what carrier to get the phone from. And although I personally don’t know many people that prefer US Cellular, the nation’s sixth largest telco, you might want to take note of their offer too.
As on all the other carriers in the United States, the Galaxy S3 will be available from US Cellular starting at $199.99. That’s for the 16 GB version, of course, while the 32 GB model will go for $249.99, which is also on-par with what all the other carriers are planning to charge for Sammy’s new flagship.
US Cellular’s pricing, however, depends on mail-in rebates, both [...]
The abundance of Galaxy S3 US pricing and availability news we reported on yesterday was almost overwhelming, but there are still things to be announced. We know that AT&T and Verizon will start taking pre-orders for the phone on June 6, while Sprint and T-Mobile will be releasing it on June 21.
After all the major carriers revealed their plans for Samsung’s flagship, US Cellular has decided to lift the veil and announce the first official bits and pieces about the S3’s availability.
The nation’s sixth largest wireless telecommunications network will start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S3 on June 12, when all the details about pricing and release [...]
The much awaited Galaxy S3 will not disappoint Americans, like it happened last year with the delays that marred the release of the Galaxy S2. According to a Samsung official statement, the Galaxy S3 will arrive in the US in a few weeks, with details to be revealed in the coming days. As we suspected, the device will launch on five carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular.
This is a big improvement over last year, when US customers had to wait not only for the Galaxy S2 to arrive in US, but also had to wait many weeks for the device to hit their carrier. Samsung has clearly learned from the past, and now that they’ve become the world’s [...]
