LG L90 announced by T-Mobile, L70 available at MetroPCS now

The LG L90 has long been rumored to be coming to T-Mobile, and indeed it will. The magenta carrier has made it official today, alongside the LG L70 for MetroPCS (which was also a very much expected move, given that a leak said it would happen). The LG L90 and L70 were both introduced to the world in mid-February as members of the new L Series III, comprising of decent performers that sport decent design and come with decent prices....

Samsung Galaxy S5 now available at MetroPCS

Exactly one week ago, Samsung released the Galaxy S5 in over 120 countries and territories across the globe. However, that doesn’t mean that all the carriers in those countries started selling the Korean company’s “next big thing” on that day. The rollout is still happening as you read this, and the latest carrier to offer the Galaxy S5 is MetroPCS. If you wanted to buy a Galaxy S5 from MetroPCS, you did have...

LG L70 will be launched by MetroPCS

Its bigger brother, the LG L90, is set to arrive at T-Mobile later this month – and the LG L70 should land at MetroPCS. The L70 and L90 are both members of LG’s new L Series III, unveiled earlier this year before MWC. These are Android-powered smartphones that cater to the lower-midrange market, bringing adequate specs to decent price points. MetroPCS is clearly going to offer the LG L70 at some point in the future. We...

Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve now on offer at MetroPCS

After having been launched by T-Mobile a while back, two Alcatel devices are now available at MetroPCS. This obviously makes sense since T-Mobile owns MetroPCS. The Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve are interestingly cheaper at MetroPCS than at T-Mobile. The Fierce retails for $99 and the Evolve is offered for $59. These prices are without any long-term contract, so you can see how these handsets may sell rather well. You...

Nokia Lumia 521 and LG Optimus F3 out at MetroPCS today

MetroPCS is introducing two new smartphones to its roster today. The carrier, now owned by T-Mobile, will make both the Nokia Lumia 521 (its first Windows Phone 8 handset) and the LG Optimus F3 available in the next few hours. Neither device is yet featured on the MetroPCS website, but that should happen soon too. The Lumia 521 is already being offered by T-Mobile, and for a few months it’s been the cheapest Windows Phone 8...

MetroPCS intros new Huawei Premia 4G (M931) affordable Android smartphone

MetroPCS has expanded its line-up of cheap 4G LTE handsets with the addition of a new device made by Huawei. Called Premia 4G (model number M931), the handset sadly runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – but at least you have to pay only $149.99 to get it (no contract required). The Premia 4G features a 4 inch display with 800 x 480 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass, Wi-Fi, DLNA, GPS, Bluetooth, Rhapsody Music Unlimited (costs $5 per...

MetroPCS LG Spirit 4G launches with 4.5″ screen, $199 price sans contract

MetroPCS has added a new Android-powered smartphone to its ever-growing roster today, the LG Spirit 4G. This device brings a 4.5-inch touchscreen to the masses, so to speak – because it’s very affordable. It also comes with LTE support built-in, like all the carrier’s recent launches. The Spirit 4G’s screen has an unknown resolution (though in this price segment you definitely shouldn’t expect it to be...

ZTE Avid 4G for MetroPCS and ZTE Grand X Pro see their press shots leaked

The Grand X, Grand X LTE T82, and Grand X IN apparently weren’t enough for ZTE. Not enough to leave the ‘Grand X’ series alone. No, the Chinese company has another one of these in the works: the Grand X Pro. A press shot depicting this handset has been leaked. By the looks of things, the ZTE Grand X Pro will be an entirely different device compared to the other members of the Grand X series. As you can see,...

T-Mobile and MetroPCS have agreed on $1.5 billion merger

After the proposed deal that would see it acquired by AT&T failed to get regulatory approval last year, T-Mobile hasn’t stood still. In fact, it went and searched for another possible partner in the mobile business. Searched hard, until it found MetroPCS, apparently. The two companies have agreed upon a $1.5 billion merger. It will be a reverse merger, though – MetroPCS will actually be acquiring T-Mobile. That said,...
