U.S. Cellular has released the Samsung R330 (Stride). This basic CDMA flip features 1.3MP camera, battery, travel charger, and stereo headset. The Stride is $39.95 on prepaid or $29.95 on a 2 year term. I think this phone would be better priced if it was free on a 2 year term as a $10 discount over 2 years is not very much.
The Samsung Stride is the perfect choice for life on easy street. Featuring sleek, stylish flip functionality, a large keypad, a built-in camera and Bluetooth® capabilities, this phone is a dependable traveling companion. Thanks to its effortless operation, the Stride is the phone to use when you choose to cruise.
Buy the Samsung Stride R330 online at the U.S. Cellular website or at an authorized retailer today.

Rogers has decided to publish a video they put together shareholder meeting that was held earlier this week. Although the video is not related directly to the mobile industry it does have many interesting facts on how technology is changing out day to day lives.
“We will define our future around connected experiences. Increasingly customers are buying based on brand, not product. They’re buying into companies that will offer seamless delivery of customer-driven experiences in a connected world.”
It will be interesting to see what Rogers does to make them the destination Canadians go to in this connected world.
