U.S. Cellular confirms HTC Desire coming this summer

The rumors we posted about the HTC Desire coming to U.S. Celluar are true. The nation’s seventh largest wireless carrier confirmed they will carry their first Android phone via a Facebook wall post. No other carrier in the United States has officially announced support for the Desire, so U.S. Cellular could be the first. The company also revealed they will carry other Android phones, but failed to mention which model. Customers should expect to see the Desire later this summer after testing is completed.

U.S. Cellular offers unlimited talk plans for $69.99 a month and data plans start at $24.95. Potential customers can also purchase a data plan without a calling plan for $29.95 per month.

      The form factor looks exactly the same and we can even see the clickable, optical trackpad that replaces the trackball typically seen on HTC Android devices. Reactions to HTC Legend.

    This phone uses the Atmel maXTouch mxt224 found on the Incredible, does it? I think it is the one found on the Nexus One, but I’m not sure.

    Why would you want HTC Desire when there is Droid Incredible?

    U.S. Cellular is the 6th largest carrier in the U.S.. I realize on the coasts people may have never heard of U.S. Cellular, but their coverage rivals Verizon (probably not 3G) in parts of the midwest, and apparently south / southeast. I think FINALLY getting Android on to the 6th biggest network is probably some of the best Android news for a while. FWIW, I use Verizon, but lots of my friends / family use U.S. Cellular.

      I live in the Southeast and traveled around other states as well, and I can tell you that I haven’t heard of USCC except on the internet.

    The Incredible has a 8 mega pixel camera vs. the Desire’s 5. But the Desire’s 1Gh Snapdragon processor is clocked just a little faster than the Incredible’s and has just a little more Ram, so it should process applications slightly faster and use less power. Other than the camera difference… there doesn’t seem to be any major hardware differences… but then we haven’t seen the final specs on the USCC Desire yet- until then, have fun guessing about it.

    I read on another tech blog that this might not be “the” HTC Desire that we are thinking of, but rather the Droid Eris. Apparently Verizon might be losing exclusivity on the Eris and the codename for the Eris was the “Desire” and as not to get in trouble with Verizon for the moment, they used the codename for the Eris. Meaning that the they aren’t getting the Desire, but really the Eris.
