Android 4.4.2 For US Cellular Moto X Could Be Released Soon

Android 4.4.2 For US Cellular Moto X Could Be Released SoonLast we heard, Android 4.4.2 is said to be making its way onto T-Mobile’s Moto X in the near future, and if you’re wondering how soon is that, perhaps the next couple of days could be it. This new rumor is according to an anonymous US Cellular representative who claims that the carrier is ready to push out Android 4.4.2 KitKit to its own Moto X handsets in the US. Of course given that this roll out is for US Cellular customers only, we can’t speak for the availability of Android 4.4.2 KitKat for other carriers, but presumably they should be rolling out, at least that’s what the rumors seem to suggest.

Those of you who own a US Cellular Moto X, you will be able to check for the updates by going to your phone’s Settings, About Device, and Check for Updates to scan manually to see if there are any updates to be had. Of course we expect the updates will be rolled out in phases so even if your friend gets theirs first, don’t worry as we expect that yours should not be too far behind. In any case we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the US Cellular Moto X, but in the meantime take it with a grain of salt for now and try not to get your hopes up just yet.

    US Cellular Announces Availability Of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini For $50

    US Cellular Announces Availability Of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini For $50If you’re planning on picking up a new phone for yourself and you’re a little tight on money, you might be interested to learn that US Cellular has announced the availability of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini on contract for $50, but like we said this is on contract which means that you will be tied to the carrier for the next two years. Alternatively the carrier is also offering the handset off-contract, but for $500 for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini? Doesn’t really seem too worth it, doesn’t it?

    For those who might have forgotten, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is essentially a lower specced version of the Samsung Galaxy S4, but keeps its design and comes in a smaller package. It forgoes the 5” Full HD 1080p display in favor of a smaller 4.3” qHD display instead. It will be packing a dual-core chipset clocked at 1.7GHz, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, and will come in a variety of colors and will also play nicely with 4G LTE networks. It’s definitely not the most powerful phone we’ve seen from Samsung, but we reckon it should be more than enough to get the basic stuff done, so if you’re not after anything too fancy, this should do the trick. So, any takers?

    US Cellular’s Samsung Galaxy S4 To Receive Android 4.3 Update This Friday

    US Cellulars Samsung Galaxy S4 To Receive Android 4.3 Update This FridayHeads up Samsung Galaxy S4 users, if you’re a subscriber of US Cellular’s services, you might be interested to learn  that according to a leaked schedule obtained by the folks at Android Police, it seems that you guys can look forward to the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for your devices come 8th of November, assuming that nothing happens from now until then that could potentially delay the update. In fact the leaked schedule (pictured above) states that the update should begin rolling out starting from 9AM in the morning, but presumably it will be a staggered roll out so fret not if the time rolls around and you have not received the update yet.

    We’re sure Samsung Galaxy S4 owners would much rather receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update, but we guess Android 4.3 Jelly Bean should be better than nothing, or at least it’s something to tide you guys over until Samsung and US Cellular manage to roll out the Android 4.4 update to you guys, which we have no idea when that will be taking place. The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build R970TYURMJA will add support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, improve performance and display quality, add new camera and TouchWiz features, functionality, and more.

    iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c Arriving On US Cellular 8th November

    iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c Arriving On US Cellular 8th NovemberGood new US Cellular customers, if you guys were a little jealous that the other major carriers, such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile were all offering their subscribers Apple’s new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, you’re in luck because US Cellular has announced that they soon will start carrying both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c come Friday, November the 8th, according to an advertisement on its website. We’re not sure what took US Cellular so long to make the announcement, especially since other smaller carriers have since debuted the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on their networks, but we guess better late than never, right?

    In any case we expect that the addition of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c to US Cellular’s portfolio of smartphones will help maintain, perhaps even expand, its current subscriber base. We have seen in the past how carriers who do not offer the iPhone to its customers have basically chased them away to competing carriers that do, so we guess it is in US Cellular’s best interest to offer up the phone as soon as possible! No word on how much the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will cost on US Cellular’s network, but presumably its asking price on-contract will be similar to the price that other carriers are asking for. Either way if you’re a US Cellular subscriber looking forward to either device, the 8th of November is a date you’ll want to mark down on your calendar.
