Today U.S. Cellular has just announced three new exciting Android products to their existing lineup. We have the HTC Wildfire S entry level smartphone, the HERO S, and the HTC Flyer Android 2.3 Gingerbread tablet. All devices will come running with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will be available starting next month.
The one we probably know the least about is the HERO S. Previously codenamed the Kingdom and also leaked as the EVO Design 4G. This is a nice mid-range smartphone bridging the gap between the Motorola Electrify dual-core smartphone, and other lower end devices for US Cellular. The HERO S is a 4.0″ qHD 960 x 540 resolution packing smartphone with a 1.2 GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 768MB of RAM and a 5 megapixel camera on the rear with LED flash. It also features a VGA front for video chat, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and HTC Sense UI. It comes with a 1520 mAH battery and will start at $199.
The Wildfire S we’ve seen plenty of times and you can see our full review on this entry level smartphone by clicking here. The Wildfire S comes in rocking a 3.2″ HVGA display, Sense UI, a 600 MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and again a 5 MP camera on the rear with LED flash. This is as entry level as it gets and is an awesome low priced Android smartphone — Launching for just $79 after a $100 MIR.
The HTC Flyer Tablet has also been around a while and here is our full review. The HTC Flyer will be available for $399.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a two-year contract and a $54.99 eligible data plan.
The benefit of US Cellular is customers on belief plans who are eligible for a phone upgrade can get the Wildfire S and Hero S at the same promotional price without having to sign a new contract. These are some great additions to the US Cellular lineup and should be available early next month. More details on all of these smartphones can be found over on uscellular.com
