The last time that we saw U.S. Cellular introduce a new Android-powered smartphone, we got the entry-level HTC Wildfire S. Today the carrier took the wraps off of another affordable Android, but this time we're getting a Samsung-made handset. Dubbed the Samsung Repp, this new device is packing a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen, 800 MHz processor, 3-megapixel camera, 2GB microSD card preinstalled, 1,500mAh battery, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Expect the Repp to launch soon for the low cost of free after $100 mail-in rebate and two-year contract.
Alongside the Repp, U.S. Cellular also announced its new trade-in program, which allows customers to sell a phone or tablet from any carrier for up to $150. That money can then be put toward whatever you see fit, including a brand new handset. Interested customers can start the trade-in process right here.
Like the Wildfire S before it, the Samsung Repp may not boast specs that are going to melt your face off, but it's always good to see a carrier building out its smartphone lineup and offer handsets that everyone can afford. As usual, when we hear more about the Repp's availability we'll be sure to pass along the deets.
