Metro PCS launch 4G LTE network & Samsung Craft featurephone

Metro PCS has followed up on its promise - and beaten far bigger rivals in the process - to launch its 4G LTE network in the US, but it's chosen a less than exciting handset to mark the occasion.  $55 per month gets you unlimited, contract-free LTE access in Metro PCS' single initial market - Las Vegas - though you'll also need to shell out $299 (after a $50 rebate) for the Samsung Craft.

MetroPCS Samsung Code SCH-i220 lands with WinMo 6.1… wait, 6.1?

There are times when a press release makes you do a double-take, and MetroPCS' this morning has prompted just that momentary disbelief.  You're looking at the Samsung Code SCH-i220, the first Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone on the MetroPCS network; yes, while everyone else is getting up to speed with Windows Mobile 6.5, MetroPCS are taking time out to celebrate their first device running the superseded OS.

MetroPCS to get Samsung Finesse touchscreen phone

MetroPCS to get Samsung Finesse touchscreen phone

The news is non-stop from CTIA 2009 today and wouldn't you know it that there was a little surprise tucked away in the endless slew of press releases? MetroPCS is will be getting a new touchscreen phone from Samsung called the Finesse.

This phone is actually pretty similar to the Instinct and the Delve in that it uses the TouchWiz interface. However, this is not a smartphone--it just looks like one! It features a 3-inch 240 x 400 touchscreen display, 3G, web browser and mobile IM. It also has a GPS application, a media player and an email app.

It seems this phone is available now without a contract. However, since it's not subsidized, the Samsung Finesse will cost you $349. A tad pricey for the feature set, but may be worth it if you're not looking to get roped into a two-year contract.
