After launching simple Samsung handsets like the Stunt R100 and the Tint R420, MetroPCS has now released its first Samsung touchscreen phone, the Samsung Caliber R860 (which is also available via U.S. Cellular).
The Caliber R860 features EV-DO Rev 0, a 3.2 inch WQVGA touchscreen display, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, GPS with MetroNavigator, full HTML web browser, Bluetooth, email, advanced voice recognition, social networking integration (Facebook, MySpace), 3MP camera with flash, and MicroSD card support (up to 16GB).
Samsung Caliber R860 also comes with a 1080 mAh battery that can provide a talk time of up to 4.5 hours, or a stand by time of up to 300 hours. The phone should be available as of now, for $250 free of contract.
MetroPCS should also introduce a Samsung LTE phone sometime later this year – but it first needs to launch a LTE network for that to happen.
