Metro PCS getting the Samsung Galaxy S III, roadmap leaks
Why? Simple - the Samsung Galaxy S III, probably the best Android device money can buy right now, is landing on the carrier in the very near future.
But it’s not the only new phone Metro PCS is launching - it’s whole portfolio of upcoming devices leaked from an anonymous insider. The phones you see below will roll out from the first week of August and until November, but not much besides the release date is known about them. The price is also already determined, but this could change along the way, so the source didn’t provide it. With no further ado, here’s what’s coming on MetroPCS.

Well I think its great for those people who dnt want to be stuck in a looong two year contract . I had metro my only complaint was that coverage was not that good in LA IT was ok but if I were to travel to like riverside or glendale I would not have service along the way anymore or if I did it would be very crappyy till I got to the other city then it would be good , data speed on LTE was ok a respectable 5-10 mbps also another complaint I had was that signal was not that good inside buildings other than that it was ok cuz I didn't pay a lot as much as what I pay now on at&t and data speeds were ok . Also if they were to get the s3 would it run on there LTE network ?

I know. That has to be the most popular Android phone Metro sells. I can see why but people need to spend the extra $50 and get the Huawei Activa. It is LTE at least.

Scared to see what this will cost off contract. I'm sure it will be worth it though

From what I've been told it will be in the neighborhood of $450 for GSIII and is supposed to be LTE. Got to have a hands on with the CoolPad. Nice phone and an improvement over most of their other phones.
Metro's plan is to have all of their lineup to be LTE Android phones with a flip (Contour 2) and another basic phone. Some LTE phones should also be $100 after MIR. Not bad at all.
