US Cellular’s first Android outing comes in the form of the Samsung Acclaim, where this will be an entry-level smartphone with a 480 x 320 display (circa 2008) as well as a 3-megapixel camera. At least the operating system is not lagging too far off with Android 2.1 being a step before FroYo, with the option of using this as a portable modem on your notebook a huge plus point, although you will need to fork out $15 more monthly on top of a regular data plan for tethering capability. US Cellular will offer the Samsung Acclaim for $100 with a 2-year contract, although early buyers will benefit from a $20 gift card to purchase apps from the Android Market. Brick-and-mortar stores ought to start receiving the Samsung Acclaim from July 9th onwards if you’re interested. This might be just the handset if you want to dip your toes into the Android ecosystem without stretching yourself financially.
