The folks from US Cellular have some big news to announce today for all those in their particular region. This morning they have announced that not only are they rolling out their new and fast 4G LTE networks in four select cities, but they’ve also detailed the first two devices to be powered by those new LTE speeds.
Samsung gets the first nod over on US Cellular and they’ll be offering the dual-core Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator — which is basically the DROID Charge. It might not be the Galaxy Nexus or the Galaxy S II but this is a great start and should really give their users a better and more portable and powerful variety to chose from.
Devices aren’t the entire story, they’ve also announced the first four markets that will get the green light for LTE. Obviously the rollout will be small to start but they have big plans to add more cities and markets soon, possibly before the end of the month. The four launching now are:
— Wisconsin: Milwaukee, Madison and Racine.
— Iowa: Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport.
— Maine: Portland and Bangor.
— North Carolina: Greenville.
These devices aren’t anything new or cutting edge but will be a great option for US Cellular customers moving forward. Not to mention they now will have the option of 4G LTE speeds. The LTE markets and devices themselves aren’t set to hit the streets and be available until first week of March so stay tuned for more details.
