LTE Samsung phone announced by MetroPCS for 2010
Remember MetroPCS’ LTE plans? The regional US carrier is committed to offer LTE services to its customers as soon as possible, and it looks like this will happen in the second half of 2010.
According to a press release issued today, MetroPCS has chosen Ericsson “as its infrastructure vendor for the launch of its LTE service.”
Even more interestingly, the carrier says that its first 4G / LTE handset will be a Samsung one. It will be a dual mode CDMA-LTE smartphone, available in late 2010.
“Samsung Mobile is excited to announce a handset that will be compatible on MetroPCS’ high-speed LTE network. This mobile device will take the user experience to the next level by offering users a full broadband Internet experience on a LTE infrastructure,” declared Paul Golden, chief marketing officer for Samsung Telecommunications America.
