Two new featurephones join the line-up at MetroPCS
The LG Beacon offers a 2.8 inch touchscreen with resolution of 240 x 400 and supports 262,000 colors. The phone comes with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard for texting and sending emails. A 1.3MP camera is on back and the phone can function as an MP3 player and includes a speakerphone. The price of the phone is $44 after a $25 mail-in rebate. Of course, being MetroPCS, there is no contract required.
The other addition to the roster is the Kyocera Presto. The device runs on BREW and is not a touchscreen model. It does have a regular numerical phone pad, a camera and access to the web. The device is $9 after a $20 mail-in rebate.
