Today Samsung and U.S. Cellular announced the SCH-r880 Acclaim, an Android 2.1 powered smartphone with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

The phone also comes equipped with a 3.0 megapixel camera with LED flash, a 4GB microSD card comes with the phone and the microSD card slot that can support up to 32GB formats. WiFi, Bluetooth, corporate and personal email support, are also included, as are the Google mobile services you've expect from an Android device such as GMail, Google Talk, Maps, and more. The Acclaim measures 114mm x 58mm x 15.2mm (4.49in x 2.32in x .60in) and weighs 130g (4.59 ounces).

U.S. Cellular plans to sell the Samsung Acclaim beginning on July 9th for $99.95 after a mail in rebate. Customers that purchase the Acclaim also receive a $20 Android Market gift card for filling their phone up with applications.

The Acclaim (Samsung SCH-r880) is a nice phone but don't try to forward a text, picture, or video message. It can't do it. I think I had a brick phone back in the day that could.

Thank God! Another user and my salesman emailed me on how to forward messages. Press and long hold on the body of the message and a new menu will open.One of the options will be to forward.Sure wish they put that info in the manual.
