Samsung Galaxy Axiom announced by U.S. Cellular
Today, U.S. Cellular announced the latest addition to its roster of Android smartphones – the Samsung Galaxy Axiom. As expected, we're dealing with a mid-range device quite similar to the Galaxy S III mini. There are, however, a few notable differences between the two.

To start, there is no word of an AMOLED panel being present on its front. Instead, the Samsung Galaxy Axiom is equipped with a 4-inch TFT screen offering 480 by 800 pixels of resolution. The processor inside it is a dual-core chip running at 1.2GHz, yet its make and model aren't being mentioned. You also get a pair of cameras – a 5-megapixel one with LED flash on the back and a 1.3MP cam for video chats up front.

Further down the specs sheet we see 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded by popping in a microSD card and a 2,100mAh battery good for 7.5 hours of talk time. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes pre-loaded with goodies like S Beam and S Voice. Last but not least the Galaxy Axiom runs on the U.S. Cellular 4G LTE network for speedy internet access.

The price of the Samsung Galaxy Axiom varies by location: in some markets it is offered for $80 on a 2-year contract, yet in others one can have it for free. $400 is what you'll have to pay in case you aren't ready for long-term commitment.
