Consumer Cellular announced on Tuesday that a pair of Android handsets have joined the carrier’s growing roster. As part of an expected larger rollout of smartphones, the LG 930 and Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate are two very different options for the no-contract AARP crowd.
The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch display, and 5-megapixel camera. Priced at $150, the phone is more than enough to get your older family members started on Android.
The LG 930 runs $300 and features a more powerful experience with specs that include a 4.5-inch IPS HD display. Additional details include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
Outside of the standard fare of rate plans, Consumer Cellular also provides five “Connect!” data plans for smartphone users. Light usage plans offer 10MB of data with heavy usage defined as 1GB per month. Consumers can pick and choose data plans at any time, making changes without penalty.
