“We believe in giving our customers the latest technology and device options and we are excited about the Windows 8 phone“, said U.S. Cellular’s PR department. Microsoft’s next mobile platform is set to land at the end of this year and it looks like U.S. Cellular is on the list of carriers that want in.
Not only that but “it will be an important part of our device lineup going forward“, said the network operator. Alongside AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon, U.S. Cellular is the fourth carrier to act excited about the upcoming platform leaving Sprint, Cricket and MetroPCS, for the moment, out from the “we’re excited about Windows Phone 8” game. In addition to that, U.S. Cellular’s move keeps the ratio balanced between GSM and CDMA in relationship to the upcoming Microsoft mobile platform.
