U.S. Cellular confirms Samsung Acclaim exclusive

Regional carrier U.S. Cellular told us to expect more Android phone launches this year and they just announced a new exclusive device. Revealed via a Facebook wall post, the Samsung Acclaim (R880) is a mid-range Android phone that will feature Android 2.1, a 3.2 inch HVGA display, and full QWERTY keyboard. No pictures were provided, but the Acclaim is said to be quite similar to the Sprint Samsung Moment.

The Acclaim should fit in U.S. Cellular’s lineup nicely next to the upcoming HTC Desire. Customers who want a mid-range phone with QWERTY keyboard can opt for the Acclaim and those who want a high-end Snapdragon phone can pick up the Desire. Both phones are expect to launch in July.

U.S Cellular might be late to the Android party, but at least they showed up with some distinguishing devices.

The Samsung Acclaim joins the HTC Desire on U.S. Cellular.

    Great, even US Cellular is gonna out do t-mobile soon. This is sort of embarassing.

    • Drew

      if soon means now, then you’re correct!

      Seriously, the only phone T-Mobile has to it’s advantage is the pricing for the N1 for those who aren’t in a family plan.

    At least the mytouch slide is a better phone than this! Com’on T-Mobile bring out the Nexus Two!!!

  • Ken

    I can’t stand vertical sliders! It will be the HTC Desire for this USCC customer.

    PS. T-Mobile can’t get a signal for crap around here anyway.
