Walmart to carry four U Prepaid phones
Regional wireless providers US Cellular and Alltel have teamed up with Walmart on an upcoming launch of a new no-contract service. Called U Prepaid, it will be available in nearly 500 Walmart stores in 18 states. The service will focus on offering simple and easy-to-understand service plans.
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.
