US Cellular gets its own Galaxy S, the Samsung Mesmerize – available October 27th
Samsung has provided all the big four Tier 1 US carriers with customized versions of its Galaxy S Android smartphone, and now it looks like it is starting to focus on smaller and/or regional carriers.
As such, US Cellular have announced today that they are launching their very own Galaxy S device, the Samsung Mesmerize (SCH-i500).
The Mesmerize, as other Galaxy S versions, features a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, a 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording, 3.5 mm headset jack, microSD card slot, WiFi with DLNA support, Bluetooth, Android 2.1 (an Android 2.2 upgrade is coming “later this year”). Preinstalled are Swype and some US Cellular-specific apps, such as Your Navigator Deluxe, Tone Room Deluxe, My Contacts Backup and CityID.
The Samsung Mesmerize will be available online and in US Cellular retail locations on October 27th. It will cost $199 after a $80 mail-in rebate.
US Cellular will launch two more Android smartphones this year, the LG Apex in November and the LG Optimus in December.
