U.S. Cellular has announced its plans for bringing a total of eight smartphones to its line-up this year out of which seven Google Android-powered (including its first 4G-enabled smartphone) and one Microsoft Windows Phone 7-powered smartphone.
From the above mentioned eight, three will be made by Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, two running Android and one Windows Phone. There will also be a dual-core 1GHz processor-powered Motorola smartphone with a 4.3-inch display running Android (probably an Atrix-like model) as well as “one of the slimmest and lightest smartphones” from LG (the Optimus Black) with a 1 GHz processor, 4-inch touchscreen and ultra-bright LCD display.
For those that are just entering the smartphone world there will be lower end offerings from Samsung and Huawei so there wil be definitely something for everyone this year at U.S. Cellular. We just need the dates and the prices.
