U.S. Cellular previously stated on its Facebook page that the HTC Desire would arrive on its network in July, but that was just a tentative date. July came and went without a peep, but U.S. Cellular is now prepared to offer the phone August 27, 2010.

In a little more than two weeks, Android lovers in areas served by U.S. Cellular will be able to visit the regional carrier and purchase the Desire. U.S. Cellular says it will cost $199.95, and re-confirms what to expect: 3.7-inch touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, 1 GHz processor, and the HTC Sense user interface based on Android 2.1.

In addition to the Google Mobile services, the following apps will come pre-loaded on the Desire

  • My Contacts Backup
  • City ID
  • Tone Room Deluxe
  • Your Navigator Deluxe

U.S. Cellular also took the time to remind us that it also has the Samsung Acclaim in stores and the Samsung Galaxy S to follow in October. Two unnamed LG devices will join soon after that release. Looks like somebody’s betting big on Android.
