Aside from the HTC Desire that's been officially confirmed to be bound for US Cellular, the wireless carrier is also expected to see the LG Mystique – which is basically their version of the LG Lotus Elite. The device was recently spotted with the US Cellular branding prominently in display and looks to be pretty much the same. As we've heard through US Cellular's Facebook page
, they're teasing all of us on what other Android phone they'll be launching. For sure the HTC Desire will capture most of the attention, but it looks as though the recent Samsung SCH-R880 seen over at the Bluetooth SIG might be the device in question. It's quite similar to the Samsung Moment with Sprint according to our tipster and features a 3.2” HVGA touchscreen, 3-megapixel auto-focus camera with flash, Android 2.1, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Furthermore, our tipster has informed us that there was a webinar held for both the HTC Desire and Samsung SCH-R880 – the latter of the two is heard to be exclusive with US Cellular. So if you prefer the advantages that a physical QWERTY has to offer, then the Samsung handset would fit the bill accordingly. Customers can soon feast upon all the goodies that Android 2.1 has to offer, but there is still no word on exact pricing or availability for the three handsets expected to reach US Cellular.
Thanks Tyrell and to our other anonymous tipster!
