Our friends at US Cellular have made public the existence of a new phone they’re set to sell soon. It’s being called the Samsung Repp and is poised to enter the market as a mid-range handset. For specs, we have a 3.2 inch display, stock Android 2.3, a 3 megapixel camera capable of recording video and more. This one most likely won’t be able to handle many GPU-taxing games, but for those who just want a small touchscreen device for basic apps and usage, it should be quite alright. It’ll be coming sometime soon for the low, low cost of “free.” [US Cellular]
