Samsung Admire for MetroPCS is revealed to be the carrier's next Android offering
For a long time now, the LG Optimus M over on MetroPCS has been tearing things up with its great pricing and awesome performance, but with most things in the wireless industry, every handset has to come to the realization that they’ll be phased out in favor of something else.

From the looks of it, the first images of the Samsung Admire SCH-R720 have been leaked and it looks as though that it will indeed be the next Android offering from the prepaid giant. Looking to launch some time between August and September, which is right in time for the back to school season, the Samsung Admire is looking to lasso in customers with its instant discount price of $149.99. Although some customers might find the recent Huawei M835 alluring with its $79.99 cost, the Samsung Admire appears to be a better equipped phone with its slightly better specs.

In fact, it’ll feature a 3.5” HVGA touchscreen, 800MHz processor, 3.2-megapixel camera, video capture, 3G connectivity, and TouchWiz UI running on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. All in all, this upcoming mid-range device will be healthy addition to the carrier’s ever-growing lineup.

Why isn't this phone on the "upcoming phones" for Metro PCS' page yet?

How does one "save" a pic emailed to the phone itself? It arrives as a picture message but I'm unable to save it.
