Motorola Electrify Available At Midnight Through US Cellular

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.

    The Photon only has a WVGA front cam, this has a 2 mega pixel? Are we sure of that?

      Oh shoot. After typing the “8MP/2MP combo” so many times I didn’t even realize it. LOL Updated post. Thanks =p

      For Sprint? How are you liking it? May I ask why you didn’t opt for any of the other devices like Evo 3D or Epic Touch?

  • Aaron

    Well It’s interesting. I had the EVO 3d for a few weeks, wasn’t bad but had to sell it. Now I used my dads upgrade and was coming for the epic touch but sold out at best buy and the guy persuaded me to the photon over EVO 3d, told me I had 14/30 days if I didn’t like it. It’s fast, signal seems better even got 10.6 mpbs download speed. Lots of interesting little things like pocket detection, and nice loud speakers

    Sprint’s version might as well be the Photon 3G. I never have signal.
