Samsung Galaxy Mega is big on size
Already staking its claim on AT&T, the Samsung Galaxy Mega and its enormous 6.3-inch screen are making a home at U.S. Cellular.
The extra-large "phablet" will sell for a budget $150 on contract, after an instant rebate.
Eager customers can buy it online starting tomorrow, September 17, and those who opt for in-store purchase will find it in carrier shops on September 19.
It does, however, have a modern OS -- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean -- an IR blaster to remotely control the TV, and multitasking features with a split-screen look.
There were a few hardware trade-offs to hit the Mega's price point. You'll notice an adequate 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a 720p HD screen (versus 1080p HD,) and an 8-megapixel camera rather than Samsung's top-of-the-line 13-megapixel number.
