You’ve heard of big game titles like Gears of War 3 and Dead Island getting midnight launches — why not smartphones? I guess US Cellular was thinking the same thing with the midnight release of their first dual-core smartphone, the Motorola Electrify. Cheesy name aside, the Electrify is essentially the US Cellular branded Motorola Photon 3G (see what I did there?) we saw released a few months back on Sprint.
Specs remain largely the same featuring a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch qHD Pentile display, 8MP rear/1.3MP front facing camera, 16GB of onboard storage and compatibility with all those exclusive Tegra Zone games.
The Electrify will be available at midnight tonight via US Cellular’s website for $200 after mail-in-rebate. There will be a very limited amount of in-store quantities come tomorrow, just make sure to call first. The official full launch for stores will hit on September 26th. Oh- and current Brief Plans who are eligible for an upgrade can also purchase the Electrify for $200 without signing into a contract.
