Despite news of an unexpected delay coming from T-Mobile, it appears as if US Cellular will have the GALAXY S 4 shipping later this week. The carrier has announced that the GALAXY S 4 would be available for online purchase beginning on April 26. Perhaps key though, pre-orders will also begin shipping that same day.
Aside from online availability, US Cellular has said the GALAXY S 4 would be available in retail stores beginning on April 30. Those who pre-ordered can also expect the S View Flip Cover, which was being offered as part of the pre-sale process. It looks like the S View Flip Cover offer is only available for those who pre-order the handset, so if you had been on the fence about a purchase, now seems like a good time to move forward.
US Cellular has the 16GB GALAXY S 4 and that will be available in both the White Frost and Black Mist models. Otherwise, while the US Cellular 4G LTE network is not quite as large as some of the other carriers, it is important to note that it currently covers 61 percent of their user base. Looking forward, US Cellular plans to have that upped to 87 percent by end of year 2013.
For those keeping track, the T-Mobile GALAXY S 4 availability was pushed to April 29. Verizon on the other hand will have the GALAXY S 4 available for pre-order beginning tomorrow, April 25. The Verizon pricing (at least after the mail-in rebate) will be the same as US Cellular, sitting at 9.99 on a two-year agreement. T-Mobile with their UNcarrier approach will have the handset available with a 9.99 downpayment and an additional 24 payments of .

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is now heading to US Cellular with 4G LTE in tow. US Cellular will sell the tablet for 9.99 with two-year commitment.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 might not have the luxury of having phone dialer options baked in like its little brother the Note 8.0, but it is still a reasonably solid tablet. The Note 10.1 features a 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, 5MP rear-cam, S-Pen Stylus and all the special Samsung apps that you’d expect with a Note device. There is also Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board.
As a bit of an extra bonus, Note 10.1 buyers will also get Adobe Photoshop Touch and 2GB of free storage on Adobe’s Creative Cloud. Other features include a multi-window feature and the addition of Samsung’s Smart Remote app for controlling your television via the tablet.
To get the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 through US Cellular you will need to sign up for a minimum size of 2GB of data, which will run you a month. As previously mentioned, you will also need to sign a contract.
What do you think, interested in picking up the Note 10.1 through US Cellular or not?

Apps like WhatsApp are certainly useful, however, they only work when a user has an active Internet connection. What happens when this connection gets cut off? You can probably imagine. In today’s high-tech mobile-centric world, there is something that many people take for granted: the fact that much of the world’s current communications infrastructure is at the mercy of those who are in control of cellular networks.
Is the world really going to sit back and watch as this apparent “weak link” in worldwide communications — that is, the dependence on active cellular networks — stays in place? Fortunately, the answer to that question is no. There is currently an ongoing effort to build and maintain a free wireless network for Wi-Fi-enabled devices — which include tablets and smartphones — with the use of free and open source technology. If you own an Android smartphone or tablet yourself, this is definitely something that you should try to look into.
But what is there to look into, exactly? Well, there’s an app called MANET Manager available for download now on Google Play, and it essentially offers users a way to enable and configure a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) for devices in order for users to enjoy cellular network-free communications. With a MANET enabled and configured, users can connect with other devices within range in order to, well, communicate.
What’s the catch? There no catch, apparently. It’s just a clever way of using the built-in wireless capabilities found in certain devices to establish wireless communications without the use of active cellular networks. This type of thing can come in handy in case of emergencies. And it could also be a way to simply cut back on wireless messaging costs yet again.
At the moment, MANET Manager only supports a limited number of devices. Check out the Google Play link below to try it out for yourself.
