U.S. Cellular announces a trio of HTC devices coming to the regional carrier
Regional carrier U.S. Cellular announced that it is adding three HTC Android devices to its lineup. The HTC Wildfire S, the HTC Hero S and the HTC Flyer tablet will soon be added to the carrier's roster. Of the two handsets, the HTC Hero S is the more loaded one. The device is actually a version of the HTC Kingdom for U.S. Cellular, as we reported. Under the hood is a single-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM7630 processor and the phone is equipped with a 4 inch Super-LCD qHD display. Rear and front-facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and 1.3MP respectively and HTC Sense will run on top of Android 2.3, The carrier is offering this device for $199.99 after a rebate and a signed 2-year pact.

The second HTC handset being added to the U.S. Cellular lineup is the HTC Wildfire S. Sporting a 3.2 inch display with resolution of  320 x 480, right off the bat you know that this is not a high-end model. A single-core 600MHz Qualcomm processor is on board with 512MB of ROM. A 5MP camera has AF and a LED flash. Available in grey or purple, this phone will cost $79.99 after rebate and a 2 year contract.

Lastly, the HTC Flyer is coming to U.S. Cellular. The 7 inch tablet comes with HTC's Scribe Technology that allows you to use a special stylus to write on the screen. 32GB of storage comes on board along with a 5MP camera on back. A single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor drives the tablet which costs $199.99 after a $100 rebate, a signed 2-year contract and a $54.99 data plan.

While we do have the pricing details, we have no word from U.S. Cellular as to when the trio will launch.

UPDATE: It turns out U.S. Cellular's site includes different information about the processor of the HTC Hero S. The phone's official product page says that it will use the 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8655, instead of the MSM7630.

Apple is still searching for best quality and cheap components to assemble iPhone 5. So Apple will make more profit while Apple lovers pay premium price. HTC is high cost too.
