Huawei Ascend II

We heard last week that US Cellular would be carrying the Huawei Ascend II -- a 3.5-inch candy bar style Android phone running Gingerbread -- and today they have made it available at the low price of free on a new agreement and after rebates.  While the Ascend II isn't a powerhouse (it has a Qualcomm MSM7627 at 600MHz) it has specs that make it more than acceptable to most folks.  It's nice to see a more consumer-friendly company like US Cellular getting closer with Android, and it's clearly what a lot of people want.  If you're interested in grabbing one of these free Android phones, hit the link and have a look.

Huawei Ascend II now available from US Cellular, free after rebate


I wouldnt put all of your eggs in that basket unless you live in one of U.S Cellular's smaller markets. Even though it is true that U.S Cellular will introduce it's 4g LTE service mid-second quarter of 2012, you may find yourself waiting alot longer if your not in one of their test markets.

I love how you pretend to know by saying mid-second quarter when in fact Us Cellular themselves have said first quarter. They are not test markets either. It's their first roll out. I'm not even with them but God man, get your facts straight.

Yeah, it's free because they have to give them away... the original Huawei Ascend was such a piece of junk. I hope this one fares better.

Well I live in chicago so I know eventually I'll get it... And hopefully we have the galaxy nexus to compliment the service
