US Cellular Adds HTC Desire with More Android Phones to Come
      #38193 - 08/11/10 05:53 PM

U.S. Cellular today announced it will launch the HTC Desire on August 27 with 3G. HTC Desire, one of five Android-powered phones that the company is introducing this year, will be available in stores and at just weeks after U.S. Cellular customers welcomed the Samsung Acclaim. The Samsung Galaxy S will join the smartphone lineup in October, with two LG Android-powered phones following closely behind.

Here is more info from today's announcement:

The allure of HTC Desire is apparent at first glance, with its slim, stylish design and vibrant 3.7-inch touchscreen that shows streaming video and graphics in vivid detail. The phone also delivers a five megapixel, autofocus camera with flash and integrated GPS. Its Wi-Fi capabilities allow users to connect to the Internet via wireless hotspots at home or on the road. Customers can upload pictures and videos to a variety of social networking and sharing sites including Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube. With a tethered modem data plan, the HTC Desire can be connected directly to a laptop for yet another way to access the Internet on the go.

HTC Desire is preloaded with U.S. Cellular applications such as My Contacts Backup, City ID, Tone Room Deluxe and Your Navigator Deluxe. Customers can also easily access Google services like Gmail, Google Maps and Google Talk instant messaging, and synch their Google calendars and contacts.
