U.S. Cellular is getting into the 4G LTE network game, launching a tablet and a smartphone as its first LTE devices in March.
The nation's sixth-largest wireless provider will inaugurate its LTE network with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE tablet, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator smartphone.
Samsung's Galaxy S Aviator features a 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus touch screen, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front-facing camera for video chats. It runs Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. For its part, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (reviewed) runs off the Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS.
U.S. Cellular and its partner, King Street Wireless, will initially roll out to 25 percent of U.S. Cellular's market in cities like Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Davenport, Iowa; Portland and Bangor, Maine; Greenville, N.C.; and Madison, Milwaukee, and Racine, Wis.
The devices' other details, launches, and pricing are scarce for now, but we'll learn more as the rollout approaches.
