Kyocera has announced their latest rugged smartphone. This time around the handset is called the Hydro XTRM and it will be heading to US Cellular later this week. Specifically, US Cellular will have the Hydro XTRM available beginning on May 24th.

GALAXY S 4 smartphone, and as a result we've been getting a slew of quick bug fixing updates. Yesterday both T-Mobile and AT&T announced the GALAXY S 4 was getting an update soon, and today US Cellular confirmed the same will happen for theirs on May 10th. Below you'll find the changelog and details.
Samsung unveiled their shiny new flagship smartphone, the GALAXY S 4, many were excited to see it had options for 16, 32, and 64GB of internal storage and an SD slot. Sadly the situation regarding what carriers will have those options have been a mess. AT&T has the exclusive in the U.S. on the 64GB model, and we haven't heard a peep from Verizon as to if they'll even offer the 32GB flavor.
unexpected delay coming from T-Mobile, it appears as if US Cellular will have the GALAXY S 4 shipping later this week. The carrier has announced that the GALAXY S 4 would be available for online purchase beginning on April 26. Perhaps key though, pre-orders will also begin shipping that same day.
US Cellular, coming just as was expected, has officially begun accepting pre-orders for the Samsung GALAXY S 4. This comes in addition to the pre-orders with AT&T, however while they both have the handset priced the same, US Cellular is offering a perk for those who pre-order. Basically, US Cellular is giving a free S View Flip Cover.
ZTE and US Cellular announced the latest smartphone that will be headed to the regional carrier soon. It's called the ZTE Director and this little entry-level budget smartphone is aimed for those on a budget or looking for their first smartphone. It's just 1 cent with a new contract, or $99 to buy outright and we have all the details.
US Cellular has begun testing out a new trial program. One that will allow perspective customers to test out the network before they sign a two-year commitment. This program sounds interesting enough, but at the moment it is limited to a select few markets. The testing is being done in Knoxville, Tennessee; Medford, Oregon and Rocky Mount, North Carolina and could be expanded if this trial period goes well.
US Cellular branded Galaxy Axiom has become the latest Samsung device to get an update to Jelly Bean. In this case, that means Android 4.1.2. Those who happen to be carrying this particular handset should be able to grab the update immediately. The one small catch is that you will need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network in order to do so though.
GALAXY S 4 pre-orders would be available. This latest is coming from US Cellular and they of course, join in alongside AT&T. While we still need details from several other carriers, these dates do appear to be lining up. US Cellular has announced April 16 as the day GALAXY S 4 pre-orders will be available. For those keeping track, that is the same date with AT&T.
Samsung event and the wording from the press release, we already knew that the GALAXY S 4 would be available with a wide variety of carriers in the US market. In fact, Samsung noted that the GALAXY S 4 would be available with AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, US Cellular, Cricket and others from the second quarter.
