Motorola Electrify Coming Soon To U.S. Cellular

U.S. Cellular adds the powerful Motorola Electrify to its lineup of Android smartphones.

U.S. Cellular announced Monday that it would be adding the Motorola Electrify to its portfolio of Android smartphones. The Electrify (which is essentially a re-branded Photon 4G), will retail for $200 after a $100 mail-in rebate and is slated for release later this month.

Like its Sprint cousin, the Electrify packs a 1 GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD display, and an 8-megapixel camera. The Electrify comes with 16GB of onboard storage, but can be expanded up to 48GB using a 32GB microSD card.

The Motorola Electrify comes with the webtop software we have seen on other high-end Motorola phones. This means that you can plug the Electrify into an HD docking station and essentially turn the phone into a makeshift desktop computer. While docked, you’ll have access to a full Firefox browser with Flash support as well as apps and other services on the phone.

This is the first dual-core phone to come to the wireless carrier, and looks to be a good choice for anyone looking to upgrade to something with a bit more power. U.S Cellular primarily operates in the Midwest, though their phones will work throughout most of the continental United States. Although it's not for sale quite yet, you can pre-order the Electrify by going here.
