US Cellular clues into 2011 smartphones, tablets

US Cellular gave out a roadmap for its device launches for the rest of 2011. It planned to launch both an Android-based LTE-based 4G device and its first Windows Phone 7 hardware before the end of the year. It also promised six more Android phones, LTE hardware in November, and an HTC tablet in the early fall that's likely to be the HTC Flyer.

Two of them were given early specification and appeared to be close matches to existing phones. One, a 4.3-inch Motorola device with a dual-core processor and GSM world roaming, sounds like a close relative of the Photon 4G that may either drop 4G or switch over from WiMAX to LTE. Another, a very thin LG phone with an "ultra-bright" four-inch display and a single-core 1GHz processor might be a reference to a CDMA Optimus Black.

Two basic messaging phones from Samsung are due to come and will each have a 2.8-inch touchscreen mixed with a QWERTY slider. US Cellular expects both in the fall.
