Back in February, U.S. Cellular announced its LTE network, along with the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator as its first LTE smartphone. The Aviator is officially available today for $199.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate and the signing of a two-year agreement. If you happen to be in one of U.S. Cellular's LTE coverage areas, however, you can snag this device for $99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate for a limited time.
While the Aviator may be the flagship device of U.S. Cellular's LTE network, it's specs are that of a modern mid-range device (realistically, it's basically just a rebranded Droid Charge):
- 4.3-inch display
- 1GHz Hummingbird processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8MP rear shooter
- 1.3 front-facing camera
- Android 2.3 with Touchwiz
So there you have it - if you've been waiting for U.S Cellular to launch its first LTE device, your wait has ended.
