Entry-level handset brings basic features
Samsung and US Cellular have introduced the Repp, an entry-level Android handset that will be offered for free with a two-year agreement. The device offers a basic set of features, centering around a single-core 800MHz processor and a 3.2-inch touchscreen with 360x480 resolution, though it does run one of the latest versions of Google's smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, that has yet to arrive on many high-end alternatives.
Other features include a 1500mAh battery claimed to provide 8 hours of talk time, a three-megapixel camera, and 2GB of integrated memory. Users can also expand storage using a microSD card.
US Cellular has yet to announce a specific launch date for the Repp, however it is expected to arrive in the "near future." [via Mobileburn]
