To say that AT&T is disappointed with the Department of Justice’s decision to try and block it’s proposed merger with T-Mobile is a bit of an understatement. The company lashed out this week in a 25-page document claiming the DOJ’s claims that killing of T-Mobile will hurt competition shows a misunderstanding of the market, and dismissed competition from feisty young upstarts such as MetroPCS and US Cellular.
US Cellular on Wednesday announced the arrival of the Samsung Mesmerize, the last of the Galaxy S line to ship to wireless carriers. The Mesmerize is a standard Galaxy S device without the front-facing camera -- otherwise, it ships with the same 1GHz hummingbird processor and 4-inch Super AMOLED as other versions of the smartphone do.
It's available now for $200 with a two-year service agreement and after an $80 mail-in-rebate, which comes in the form of a Visa Debit card.
In addition, Samsung today announced plans to ship the Galaxy Tab to US Cellular, which will join T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and Best Buy in carrying the tablet. Unfortunately Samsung was extremely short on details and didn't announce a price point or release date, though did say it would be "available to customers in time for the holiday shopping season."
