According to a recent study from CTIA-The Wireless Association, nearly 80 percent of women use mobile devices to keep the family informed about each other’s activities and locations while 70 percent use them to coordinate their families' schedules. U.S. Cellular is making it easier than ever to keep families connected with the launch of its first 4G LTE mobile device, the AndroidTM-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1®, which is available for $399.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate in U.S. Cellular’s 4G LTE markets.

Medford residents who purchase the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 now will have access to the 4G LTE network in the second half of 2012, experiencing speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G and similar to a cable Internet connection. What this means for customers is faster web browsing, app downloads and smoother video streaming.

“Whether you're using your device to sync your family's schedule, find a restaurant or to check on movie times, the newest tablets help you maximize your time together,” said Roberta Winger, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Oregon and California.“With 4G LTE speeds, they are an ideal device to help you simplify and organize your life, and help you get more done faster.”

Winger offers these tips for using your tablet and its most valuable features:

Access all of your information in one place – Use your tablet to instantly check your email, texts, social networking sites, calendars, maps and more. With a tablet, you can access information quickly with just a few screen touches and their thin and light design make them easy to use while out and about.

See and hear more clearly – The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 delivers a HD-quality picture that brings movies, photos and programs with rich graphics to life. Dual speakers create a surround sound effect that makes movie-watching more interactive and engaging. It’s perfect if you're stuck at an airport or on a long family car ride.

Feel closer to loved ones, even when you're apart – Several tablets have both front and rear-facing cameras, letting you video chat easily.

Stay connected to breaking news and events – Get local and global updates on weather, traffic, news and entertainment through apps, websites and streaming video.

Use your tablet for social networking – The Social Hub app is a powerful tool allowing you to easily access and manage multiple social networking accounts, emails and instant messaging, all in one place.

Get your work done faster and more efficiently – The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is preloaded with Polaris Office to view, edit and create various documents including Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel with all the functions of your PC. This makes it easier than ever to meet your business deadlines, whether you're working on your subway commute or on the sidelines of your kid's gymnastics practice.

The 4G LTE network builds on U.S. Cellular’s 3G data services that its loyal customers already enjoy. U.S. Cellular has a high-speed nationwide network with the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier. In addition, the company offers the industry's first and only points-based reward program, which is completely free, and allows customers to easily earn points for paying their bills on time, being a customer for six months, even for celebrating a birthday. The points are redeemable for things that wireless customers want most, such as faster phone upgrades, new phones and tablets, accessories, and ringtones.
