MetroPCS finally gets their first Windows Mobile 6.1 handset - the Samsung Code
It was a long time coming, but we knew that there would eventually be some kind of smartphone available for MetroPCS. Samsung can claim to be the prepaid carrier's  first and sole smartphone available for purchase on their lineup. In its early days, mostly basic flip handsets dominated their offerings with eventually QWERTY focused ones making it onto the scene. Now no contract customers can enjoy the business like handset of the Samsung Code SCH-I220 that's powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard Edition. It might not be part of the latest Windows Mobile 6.5 global launch, but it's still considered a milestone to just see one offered. It has some similarities to some of Samsung's other portrait QWERTY handsets, but stands out on MetroPCS's lineup due to the fact it's considered a smartphone. Even better is the fact that the $50 per month plan will unlock the true potentials of it – unlimited talk, text, and data included. If web browsing will be your thing, you'll be glad to know that it's a 3G device right out of the gate for lightning quick speeds. So how much will this cost you? It'll cost you a staggering $300, but wouldn't you consider the thought of knowing you're not tethered to a contract make it all worth it?
