US Cellular is taking bold steps to build out 4G LTE wireless data access too.
Access to Sprint 4G LTE markets(limited to 10 markets by 2012 starting off in major metros in Texas).
Featuring a moderate helping of mid range components, the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator runsAndroid 2.3 Gingerbread pushed along by a single core 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird CPU.
Top selling models included the iPhone 4S at AT&T/Verizon/Sprint, the Samsung Galaxy S II at AT&T/Sprint/T Mobile, the Motorola Droid RAZR (MAXX) and Samsung Droid Nexus at Verizon, the Samsung Galaxy Note at AT&T, and the HTC Amaze and Samsung Galaxy S Blaze at T Mobile.
A 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen and 1.3 Megapixel camera sit on the phone’s front face while an 8 Megapixel shooter with LED flash are on back.
There’s even an HDMI port for plugging the phone into compatible HDTVs and monitors if that’s your bag.
The real draw here of course is the CDMA handset’s ability to grab a connection to US Cellular’s fledgling LTE 4G service.
That said, the carrier’s 4G LTE footprint at this point only includes select areas in seven states.
The Evo 4G LTE will be the first Sprint phone capable of picking up HD voice quality sound, which Sprint and HTC say is a significantly improved calling experience.
The company, however, plans to extend LTE service to cities in 10 additional states by the second half of 2012.
Apart from Telstra’s dual mode 4G/3G USB dongle, the only gadgets on sale in Australia which support Telstra’s LTE network are three Android devices — HTC’s Velocity 4G smartphone, Samsung’s Galaxy S II 4G smartphone and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G tablet.
