The first Long Term Evolution devices to be launched by U.S. Cellular will be a smartphone and a tablet, according to filings made by the carrier. U.S. Cellular has already said that it plans to launch LTE during the first quarter of 2012, and will cover approximately 25% of its service footprint with the speedier network. U.S. Cellular had not previously indicated what its first LTE devices would be. Other carriers have chosen to launch LTE mobile hotspots and laptop dongles before phones and tablets. U.S. Cellular said that it is working with a single hardware maker for both devices. The smartphone will use LTE for data, and rely on U.S. Cellular's CDMA network for voice services. The company won't deploy Voice over LTE until 2013 the earliest.
