Stunning 6-inch Quad HD Display Smartphone

CHICAGO (December 9, 2014) – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) and Google have announced today that the 4G LTE Nexus 6 smartphone is now available in stores and online. Nexus 6 is available in Midnight Blue or Cloud White starting at $199.99 with a two-year contract. Qualified customers will be able to add it to their Shared Connect plan and get it for $0 down using U.S. Cellular's equipment installment option.

Currently 90 percent of U.S. Cellular customers are covered by a 4G LTE network, and more than 93 percent of customers will have 4G LTE speeds by the end of 2014.

"Offering the Nexus 6 experience to our customers with its innovative features is another example of how we're focused on simplifying and enhancing their lives through technology," said Joe Settimi, vice president of products, pricing and innovation for U.S. Cellular.

The Nexus 6 features a stunning 6-inch Quad HD display and dual front-facing speakers that deliver immersive stereo sound. It curves perfectly to fit your hand, has the ability to charge quickly, and comes with Google Camera pre-installed so you get the most out of the 13MP camera.
