Samsung made on Thursday another announcement about who is going to be the next carrier that will bring the Samsung Galaxy Tab through its stores. U.S. Cellular is the fifth in line to announce the Galaxy Tab after the four major carriers reveled the release dates and pricing for the android slate.
Even though there is no information regarding the price or the release date from U.S. Cellular, we expect to see the android tablet smiling before the end of this year.
This is a smart move from the U.S. Cellular which started to add lots of interesting android smartphones in their catalogue. We are still waiting for the price and the release date but hopefully it won’t take too long.
