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 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.
