Cellular South scoops up Sprint-spec Hero

Chris Ziegler

If you'd told us that privately-held regional Cellular South would be just the third carrier in the US to properly offer an Android handset, we would've laughed until we cried -- but now that it's official, our laughter has turned to steely solemnity and respect for a tiny company going above and beyond the call of duty. The carrier hasn't announced an availability date, but interested parties can now sign up to be notified when the Hero -- an exact duplicate of Sprint's version -- will be launching. Just like Sprint, you get Sense, a 5 megapixel cam, and that chinless bottom that's less likely to make your thumb upset in day-to-day use than its GSM cousin. We'd say "sign us up," but then again, we're not Cellular South subscribers, nor could we be if we wanted to -- that's the perpetual tragedy of the regional carrier, sadly.

[Thanks, Bill]
