Samsung Acclaim R880 with Android 2.1 announced by U.S. Cellular

After confirming the upcoming launch of HTC Desire, U.S. Cellular has now announced yet another Android phone via Facebook – the Samsung Acclaim R880.

The regional US carrier says the Acclaim runs Android 2.1 and features a 3.2 inch touchscreen display with 320 x 480 pixels.

There’s no photo of the handset yet, but thanks to the Bluetooth SIG we also know that it will have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, 3MP autofocus camera with flash, MicroSD card slot, and Google Mobile Services (Maps, Search, Calendar, Gmail, YouTube, Android Market).These features are similar to the ones of the Samsung Galaxy Spica (seen below), so who knows, maybe the Acclaim is just a CDMA version of the Spica. Update: nope, it can’t be a CDMA Spica, because the Acclaim also has a full QWERTY keyboard.

U.S. Cellular plans to launch the Samsung Acclaim R880 in July (the price is not known at the moment). The carrier’s customers should hope that the HTC Desire will be available at about that time, too.
