PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Consumer Cellular (www.consumercellular.com), the number one rated cellphone service for the third consecutive year and exclusive wireless provider for AARP members, has added the LG 930 and Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate to its product portfolio. These smartphones are the first in a significant portfolio expansion planned for this year. Consumer Cellular’s first state-of-the-art smartphone offering, the LG 930 provides an innovative, high-definition viewing experience, optimal performance and all the latest mobile features. The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate offers Consumer Cellular subscribers many luxuries of a high-end smartphone, including a vibrant display and powerful performance, at a competitive price.
According to a recent Pew Research Center Cell Phone Activities report, over the past few years, twice as many cell phone owners are using their devices to access the internet (56 percent), record video (44 percent) and download apps (43 percent), and 84 percent of cell phone owners use their device to take photos.
“People use cell phones to do much more than make calls, which means performance and value-added features are more important to our customers than ever,” said Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick. “With these two smartphones – and the others we plan to launch throughout the year – we are offering the high-quality device options that our subscribers want, without the long-term commitment that often accompanies these devices and plans through other carriers.”
Priced at just $150, the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate brings smartphone technology to budget-conscious consumers. The Android 4.0.4-powered Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate supports a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and offers a wide range of popular features, including a bright 4-inch display, a 5.0 MP camera with digital zoom and voice recognition technology.
