HTC Hero S From US Cellular Gets a Quiet Launch


The HTC Hero S was announced on September 28th for US Cellular, but at that time they only gave us a date of “available next month”. Well, we’re in that next month and one of our readers has noticed that it’s now available for purchase for $200 after a new two-year agreement. This is only after a $100 mail-in rebate that’s returned to you in the form of a Mastercard so you will be paying $300 for it up front.

For that money we wouldn’t blame you for trying out a different phone. They do carry the Motorola Electron, a variant of Motorola high-end phones. It has 1GB of RAM, a 1GHz dual-core processor and a 4.3 inch qHD display. I’m not here to influence your purchase decision, though – go take a look at the Hero S and decide for yourself. [Thanks Adam!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. thats motorola electrify actually not electron!!

  2. The reason im looking at this is for a friend that has pretty small hands. She just bought the electrify and it is too big and heavy for her. Even though its not dual core it still has pretty good specs to go along with the lighter smaller size!

  3. I’m drawn to it because of its supposedly nice camera/lens set-up. Wife has the Electrify; worst phone camera I’ve seen in some time. Coming from the USCC Mesmerize.

  4. Where does us cellular have coverage?

    1. Try their website…

    2. Here in Northern California for one, also Oregon and Washington, as well as many areas across the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast.

  5. U.S. Cell is pretty popular here in Chicagoland. Not sure how far their coverage extends outside the midwest.

  6. I travel the entire country and have no problems with US Cellular coverage. I no-where-ville Nebraska the US Cellular will outperform my AT&T all day.
