Today US Cellular picks up its first Android device, the exclusive Samsung Acclaim. The phone features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3.2-inch screen, and Android 2.1. It’s priced at $99 on contract, but US Cellular is feeling generous and throwing in a second Acclaim for free should you so choose.
The Android smartphone comes with the full Google experience plus a few apps harvested from the Android Market for a phone that is good to go out of the box. You’ll get Evernote, Twidroid, and the Weather Channel app to name a few. You’ll also get Your Navigator Deluxe by TeleNav included in the $30 smartphone data plan for all of your navigating needs. Bundle that with Google Maps and you’re sure to never get lost. So what are you waiting for people in US Cellular markets, your day has arrived!
