HTC has released the kernel source for the EVO Design 4G, and its US Cellular cousin, the HTC Hero S. The specific version is 2.6.35 for Gingerbread, which is the current kernel running on the devices. Having kernel source opens up some ridiculously cool mods and hacks, and the development community should have plenty of fun with this. This means that we'll all be having fun shortly after. ...

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...
It's long been rumored that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be headed to US Cellular. And now, thanks to USCC's ESN system, it looks like the Galaxy S II is headed that way as well. Neither device has been officially announced by the regional carrier. But given the depth of its current roster of Android smartphones and tablets, it's probably just a matter of time.
US Cellular today announced it's carrying the Huawei Ascend II. The phone's decidedly mid-level, but the price is right -- free after $100 mail-in rebate.
Full specs include:
3.5-inch display at HVGA resolution
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
Qualcomm MSM 7627 processor at 600 MHz
Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
1400 mAh battery
Weight: 4.8 ounces

All kidding and interweb trolling aside, nobody really thinks the Galaxy Nexus will be a Verizon exclusive.

The smartphone fairy must've been feeling generous today, because she's tossed me a new phone to check out. No, it's not the Motorola Photon 4G. That's on Sprint. No, this phone is the Motorola Electrify, a US Cellular-branded device that's lock, stock, and barrel the Photon, but with a silver bezel.
All the good things Phil had to say about the Photon still ring true. It's fast, it feels solid...
