LTE-enabled Samsung r900 goes to MetroPCS

Posted: , by Ray S.


LTE-enabled Samsung r900 goes to MetroPCS
In what may be a surprising news story, Samsung actually announced that one of the first commercially available LTE-enabled handsets will be available with no other carrier but MetroPCS. The Samsung SCH-r900 will take advantage of the carrier's soon-to-be deployed 4G network, which will first cover a number of metropolitan areas in the second half of the year. No other information or images of the Samsung r900 are available as of now, except for the fact that it will also be able to use the MetroPCS CDMA network, but we promise to keep you posted.

While we are on the topic of 4G, why don't you check our Hands-on with the HTC EVO 4G!

UPDATE: SlashGear has shared a picture of an unannounced Samsung LTE device showcased at CTIA 2009. Could this be the Samsung r900? Time will tell...

i doubt verizon really cares. what good is have an LTE enabled phone is the network does not provide LTE. Im sure Verizon has something huge up their sleeve ;-)

Now, Verizon has quite a few Samsungs, but just because this article said that "Samsung" will be giving 4g phone to MetroPcs DOES NOT MEAN they will have a 4g phone before VZW, my bet is Motorola or HTC will be the first to launch a 4g phone on LTE VZW. LONG before Samsung gets to for metro.
