U.S Cellular launches the Samsung Trill, Samsung Caliber


Further proving that they can blast out feature phones at a rate faster than any other manufacturer in the world, Samsung has just launched not one, but two new pieces for U.S. Cellular.

U.S Cellular isn’t exactly a maven of the cutting edge, so there’s nothing too exciting here. The Samsung Trill (SCH-R520) is your run-of-the-mill slider, while the Samsung Caliber (SCH-R850) is a touchscreen handset running on Samsung’s TouchWiz OS (read: Just TouchWiz – not TouchWiz on top of WinMo or another platform.) The Trill and Caliber will set you back $89.95 and $99.95 respectively, after 2-year contracts and $50 mail-in rebates.
