LG Optimus U with Android Froyo arriving at U.S. Cellular next week

The LG Optimus One is slowly but surely conquering the US: it’s currently available – in different versions, under different names – at Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and MetroPCS, and it will also be launched by U.S. Cellular next week.

U.S. Cellular’s handset is called LG Optimus U and it will be available starting December 13 for free on contract (after a $80 mail-in rebate).

The Optimus U will, of course, run Android 2.2 Froyo, featuring a 3.2 inch HVGA touchscreen display, Swype, Wi-Fi, Google Maps, 3.5mm headphone jack, 3.2MP camera, and a 2GB memory card pre-installed.

U.S. Cellular didn’t unveil any photos of its Optimus U, but the smartphone should look like a combination between the Optimus handsets seen above (Optimus T, Optimus S, Optimus M, and the Vortex).
