Today, US Cellular has announced that it has added a new Android-powered smartphone to its roster. It’s not a high-end device though, but is one that is going to have the perfect price: free. Does that sound interesting? Meet the Samsung Repp.
The handset is on its way to US Cellular stores, and it already has a dedicated page on the carrier’s website. The Samsung Repp has a 3.2-inch 320×480 touchscreen, a 3 MP camera with video capture support, an 800 MHz processor, stereo Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 2 GB of storage. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The Samsung Repp is a classic candybar-style touchscreen-only device, there’s no physical keyboard here.
Alongside the new smartphone, US Cellular has also announced a new trade-in program that lets you exchange your old phones and tablets for cash or or credit good towards a new purchase at the carrier. You can get up to $150 for gear that’s still in demand and in great shape. So if US Cellular is your carrier of choice, or if it will become that in the future, remember not to forget about this trade-in program. You just may shave some bucks off of the price of the phone you want to get.
