Motorola recently announced two new Android powered smartphones, the Motorola Electrify 2 and Motorola Defy XT. These devices will be exclusively available for the subscribers of US Cellular. The Motorola Electrify 2 is second device in the popular Motorola Electrify family of smartphones. This handset runs on the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Operating System. On the other hand, Motorola Defy XT is a dust-proof, water-resistant and scratch-resistant smartphone which runs on the old Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS.
Edward Perez, vice president, sales and marketing operations, U.S. Cellular, said:
“Customers who purchase Motorola Electrify 2 or Defy XT will not only enjoy a new cutting-edge Android-powered smartphone, but will also get the best customer experience. A mobile phone should make life simpler and easier to get things done and U.S. Cellular believes the customer relationship with their wireless carrier should be the same.”
