Smartphone sales will exceed one billion devices by 2016, according to IMS Research. For wireless customers looking to make the switch to a smartphone or tablet or simply upgrade their device, U.S. Cellular will offer a free Device Workshop on Saturday, July 21 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. at 403 Wilson Street in Brewer and Saturday, July 28 from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at 33 Mid Mall Boulevard in Bangor. U.S. Cellular associates will help attendees get the most out of the features on their Android-powered, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The workshop is open to everyone. Please call U.S. Cellular in Brewer at 207-989-3291 or Bangor at 207-942-5218 to RSVP.

“Smartphones continue to be our go-to, all-in-one gadget,” said Eric Conlon, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in New England “Android-powered devices have access to nearly half a million apps along with digital movies, books and music. Customers who switch to U.S. Cellular join the only points-based rewards program in wireless and receive points that can be used towards faster phone upgrades, free phones, ringtones and accessories.”

Android-powered devices enable customers to transform a smartphone to a device that meets their exact needs. The Samsung Galaxy S Aviator allows customers to enjoy faster web browsing and quick app downloads with access to 4G LTE speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G and similar to a cable Internet connection.

“We believe that each customer deserves the best wireless experience, so our associates are here to help you get the most out of your device,” Conlon said.
