Default U.S. Cellular to Offer First Windows Phone Tomorrow


[Image from HTC]

Tomorrow, US Cellular users around the country will rejoice in glee as the company releases their first Windows Phone 7 for the public. The phone is called the Windows Phone 7 Pro, a variant of the HTC Arrive. The pro has a digital compass (ooo!), GPS, FM radio, 3G, and a 5.0 megapixel autofocus camera with flash and records 720p. Anther neat feature is the sliding QWERTY keyboard that also tilts to allow comfort as seen in the above image. The device also had a 1GHz processor and 576MB of RAM, along with a 3.5 inch screen that isn't too colossal for you multi-media experience.

Anyways, the phone is going on sale at $199 with a mail-in rebate tomorrow, 6/13.

I use US Cellular! YEAH! I would NEVER leave them, Their service is great! Free incoming, USC to USC, late, and weekend calls! I couldn't give that up

Now, for WP7, I do remember mentioning that USC was planning on releasing at least one WP7 phone by the end of the summer. I didn't think they'd make one available this early. This is great news... for me.

Here's that phone.

This is actually kinda neat. I'll compare this carrier to T-Mobile (and see if they're even available in my neck of Arizona).

Edit: It's not

Yeah, I think they might me mostly available in the Midwest. I still get coverage across the US, so I can't imagine why they don't have stores out by anyone else...

Maybe it's not a western US thing.

Like, we don't have Qwest.

To be Frank, there isn't much anything special about it.

When I seen this i rushed to the USC website and checked the coverage and was sad to see it's not anywhere near Mass. My wife was talking about maybe moving to Arkansas and that she has heard of USC and she tought they had service there, so I checked and much to my dismay no coverage in the area we might move to. So I guess I'm stuck with my HD7 till my contract with T-Mobile is up for renew. I like my HD7 but miss the full QWERTY keyboard i had on my SideKick, and much to my surgin the new SideKicks run android. Can't a windows lover get a break!

PS oh wow I need to update alot of my info!

I wish US Cellular would go away or get bought-out already. I think the more cell service choices the better - but they aren't changing for the better and its such a pain having to deal with them when someone asks me for help. They actually still charge for Roaming on many of their plans and have the most Idiotic representatives I've ever met. I would use any other service prover (Even pre-paid) before I went through them.

U.S cellular is perhaps one of the best regional carriers here in the U.S. They have great service where I live (then again, they are headquartered here). Good for them getting some awesome phones.
