U.S. Cellular has announced the upcoming availability of the Motorola ELECTRIFY smartphone. The ELECTRIFY features a dual-core processor and both front and rear cameras.
Similar in appearance to the Motorola PHOTON 4G for Sprint, the ELECTRIFY sports a 4.3-inch, qHD (540 x 960 pixel) resolution display, and a kickstand to prop the phone up for watching videos. It is powered by a dual-core, 1GHz processor, and features an 8 megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash. A front-facing camera is available for video chats. There is 16GB of internal storage built-in, and the ELECTRIFY supports microSD cards up to 32GB in capacity. Users can also output the ELECTRIFY's display to any HDTV through the micro-HDMI port. The ELECTRIFY is also a world-capable phone, so it can roam on GSM networks when outside of the U.S.
The ELECTRIFY will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread when it is launched. It will also be compatible with Motorola's HD Station with the Webtop operating system. Webtop allows users to browse the full web with the Firefox browser when the ELECTRIFY is docked in the HD Station and connected to a larger display.
U.S. Cellular will make the Motorola ELECTRIFY available for purchase later this month. It will run $199.99 after rebate with a new two-year agreement.
