Pretty soon, T-Mobile will no longer be the only US-based carrier with an Android offering. Based on a recent press release, Cellular South has announced that they will soon be offering an “Android smartphone device.”
And yes, judging from the generic description, the press release was really doing nothing more than announcing their plans to offer an Android phone. That said, it almost seems like the little kid who cannot keep a secret and just has to get it out in the open.
“We’re excited to provide our customers with the diversity of new and exciting applications fueled by the open nature of the Android open source platform,” Hankins said.
Unfortunately that means Cellular South did not offer anything additional in terms of which handset they were going to offer, when it would be available or how much it would cost. Basically at this time, all we can say for sure is they are planning to have it available “soon.” Still, its nice to see that US-based Android fans will soon be getting more options in terms of carriers. Now lets just hope to see some larger carriers such as AT&T, Verizon or Sprint make an announcement of their own.
