US Cellular confirms that Windows Phone 8 is on the way
US Cellular, for being a regional carrier, has been able to maintain a pretty decent line-up of devices, although folks looking for iPhone love have been disappointed. Fans of Windows Phone have been able to pick from a good selection of Windows Phones as well.

However, US Cellular has not had any Windows Phone 8 devices in its stable since the launch of new devices last year, and its remaining Windows Phone 7 devices have dwindled to a selection of only one, the ZTE Render.

Did US Cellular have any plans to jump into the Windows Phone 8 game? Turns out the answer is yes, and we found out via the carrier’s Facebook timeline where it was pumping the Galaxy S4 for pre-order of all places.

Not surprisingly, we have zero details as to which Windows Phone gear will be joining US Cellular’s line-up, no date either. All that was offered was that more details would be made available in May and that the announcement would be made on Facebook “first.”

Maybe this is where the 'hero' phone that Elop was referring to will drop?

The Facebook response says "Windows 8", not "Windows Phone 8", despite Joel's request for a Windows Phone. Not sure it matters, just inaccurate.
