U.S. Cellular is now selling the Motorola Electrify Android-powered smartphone, a re-branded version of the Motorola Photon 4G at Sprint, except without 4G download capability. Both smartphones offer dual-core 1GHz processors, a 4.3-inch qHD (Quarter High Definition) touchscreen display and a kickstand for convenient hands-free viewing of high-quality movies, TV shows and videos. Plus, with HDMI output and full Mirror Mode, customers will be able to connect to the Electrify to any HD screen, so the entire family can enjoy the latest movies or hottest new Android games on their television at home.
The Electrify's premium 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and auto photo-enhancing software will allow customers to leave their camera at home and still capture incredible photos and videos. The device also features a front-facing camera for video chat on the go. Customers can take and store tons of photos and videos with 16GB of memory on-board that can be expanded to 48GB with a 32GB memory card purchase.
With Motorola's exclusive webtop application, customers can expand Electrify's power to include a larger screen and full keyboard for amazing functionality and productivity. Plug Electrify into the Motorola HD Station and connect to an HD monitor to launch a full Firefox 4.0 browser, simultaneously surf the web, stream music, and run useful apps. Customers will have instant access to personal and corporate e-mails and will be able to download photos and videos in a flash on U.S. Cellular's high-speed nationwide network, which has the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier.
