U.S. Cellular's Windows Phone 8 model is the Samsung ATIV Odyssey
Equipped with a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen offering resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA), the Samsung ATIV Odyssey has a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus under the hood with an Adreno 225 GPU. 1GB of RAM is on board along with 8GB of native storage. There is a 64GB capacity microSD slot included on the phone. The rear-faced camera weighs in at 5MP while the one in front is 1.2MP. A 2100mAh battery will handle your power needs and the phone does offer NFC support and LTE connectivity.
No word on when U.S.Cellular will launch the device, or how much it will be. As we pointed out, we've already seen this phone offered for free and that was 6 months ago, so we wouldn't expect the price to bust your wallet.

This isnt a bad move but they were supposed to get the HTC 8S without lte, but HTC canceled the american of the 8S, so this is USCC's replacement for that but with lte.

He is reporting objective news. I think the only thing embarrassing here is your comment.

ODD.. ? IS Samsung selling old stock or getting back into making thier Win8 models.. I thought they were about Discontinued at this point.. Much like the HTC 8X and Nokia 810. If they are back to making them, then I would think that is a good sign. I am suprised though they arent selling a Nokia Lumia.

Why wouldn't they.. they are CDMA, and any phones made for Verizon or Sprint would work. So a HTC 8X (unless HTC discontinued them.. since they are MIA at Tmobile now), or a Lumia 822.. Why wouldn't you want to sell more phones..? Speaking of which makes me wonder if the HTC 8x was pulled from T-mo so they could get the 925 exclusive..?
