It looks like, the regional carrier U.S. Cellular has a strong-growing rollout of Android devices plotted for the rest of this year. Just a while ago, we reported about the leaked image of the U.S. Cellular branded HTC Hero S smartphone, which has been pictured siting next to the Motorola Electrify. Before there was any time for another rumor to take place, the carrier had officially confirmed the launch details of the Motorola Electrify handset. U.S. Cellular plans to kick-off online sales from midnight tonight via carrier’s website and only a few stores will start selling the handset from tomorrow. It will be available for purchase at all the in-stores across the nation beginning September 26th. Motorola Electrify costs you $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate linked to the purchase of a data plan with your signature on a two-year contract agreement with the carrier. Please note that the existing customers who are eligible for an upgrade can also purchase the Electrify for $199.99 without signing the contract.
Motorola Electrify is basically US Cellular’s version of the Motorola Photon 4G for Sprint. So what does the phone have to offer? It has got Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, rocking a 4.3-inch qHD (540 X 960 resolution) touch display, having a dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 AP20H processor, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA camera on the front,16GB of storage in-built, memory expansion support up to 32GB via microSD card, 1GB RAM, HD video recording and playback, 1700mAh battery, World Phone capability, Wi-Fi b/g/n and all the regular features of an Android phone.

On the left side you’ll find a microUSB port, a mini-HDMI port and volume up/down rocker while a dedicated camera button is found on the right side.
It will also be packing a useful kickstand (a first for a Motorola device) on the back side to to keep it from shaking or falling so that you can enjoy movies and games at your comfort.
