US Cellular announced last week that they were planning to launch the Huawei Ascend II smartphone, and well, it looks like the carrier has since made good on that promise. In short, the Huawei Ascend II is now available by way of the US Cellular website. For those looking for in-store availability, that is not expected to arrive until sometime in “early January.” Getting back to the online availability though, US Cellular has the Ascend II for free on a two-year agreement. To clarify that price, from now until January 2nd, the handset will be completely free (thanks to an instant rebate) and after the 2nd the handset will remain free, but will be free after a $100 mail-in rebate. In other words, if you were considering picking up a US Cellular branded Huawei Ascend II — sometime before January 2nd may be the best time. That all being said, the Ascend II brings specs to include Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.5 inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, 600MHz processor, 1400 mAh battery and a 5 megapixel camera. And lastly, the handset is shipping with a 2GB microSD card.
