OPPO R1S spotted with Qualcomm Snapdragon inside

It was only the other day that the OPPO R1 was trying to make its way to the US and now it seems that a new variant is already available.

US Cellular 4G LTE expansion plans detailed

US Cellular has revealed some details on their 4G LTE expansion plans. It is looking like they have plans to add more than 1,200 4G LTE sites this year.

We've been seeing "LTE-A" markings on handsets coming out of Korea, and it looks like we may soon be seeing similar markings here in the US. AT&T has become the first of the US carriers to launch LTE-Advanced coverage. But before you start checking your current handset, or thinking about what you can upgrade to -- the coverage is rather limited at the moment.
