HTC Desire, BlackBerry Bold Headed to U.S. Cellular
During its recent quarterly earnings call, U.S. Cellular confirmed the addition of several smartphones to its line-up. Alan Ferber, U.S. Cellular's executive vice president of operations, said the HTC Desire and Research In Motion's BlackBerry Bold will go on sale later this month. These will be joined later in the year by the Samsung Galaxy S, and two unannounced smartphones from LG. U.S. Cellular also confirmed that it is conducting Long Term Evolution technology trials, and is preparing to deploy an LTE network at some point in the future. The company didn't commit to a time frame, but indicated that it wants to see the LTE ecosystem (availability of handsets, dongles, etc.) grow bigger before it spends the money to build the network.
