Regional carrier U.S. Cellular doesn't quite have the robust smartphone lineup as the big guys, but it's been slowly beefing up its offerings. Its latest acquisition is the HTC Touch Pro, which is available now for $249.95 with a two-year contract and after rebates.
Like we said when Verizon recently launched the HTC Touch Diamond for Verizon, the HTC Touch Pro is a little late to come to U.S. Cellular, considering it's been out for a few months now and the HTC Touch Pro2 is on its way. However, the chances of the latter coming to the carrier is far less likely than one of the big four (Sprint, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and T-Mobile) so the Touch Pro isn't a bad addition.
The Windows Mobile smartphone offers a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, HTC's TouchFlo 3D interface, Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, and EV-DO Rev. A support. For more information, check out U.S. Cellular's Web site.
