MetroPCS first smartphone
running Google's most current Android 2.2 platform and a no-contract smartphone
Regional carrier MetroPCS announced its first no-contract Android smartphone, the LG Optimus M.
It seems like this year, the summer season belonged to the Samsung Galaxy S series, but the remaining season surely goes to the LG and its Optimus line.
In addition, this smartphone serves well as yet another example of the arising number of Android smartphone launches among Tier 2 carriers.
The Optimus M will be launched by the flat-rate carrier on Nov. 24 for $229 and it offers a $50 monthly service plan that will bundle unlimited talk, text, and web (data services).
MetroPCS is offering the Optimus M to its users without having to sign any two-year contract. Due of this, the phone does require a higher retail price as it is not subsidized, while versions of the Optimus phone have earlier appeared on other carriers, such as T-Mobile and Sprint.
It is MetroPCS first smartphone running Google’s most current Android 2.2 platform and it is completely a budget-oriented phone.
The Optimus M features are a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera, 600 MHz processor, Wi-Fi, Swype, e-mail messaging, a music player, a personal organizer and access to Android Market for apps.

U.S. Cellular today announced its fourth Android-based smartphone, the LG Apex, for a November 19 release. After last month's Samsung Mesmerize
, the Apex uses Android 2.1 and carries a price tag of $79.99 after an $80 mail-in rebate.
Unlike the Galaxy S Mesmermize, however, the hardware details for the LG Apex indicate an entry-level device with a 3.2-inch touch screen, sliding QWERTY keyboard, and 3-megapixel camera. The smartphone should pair well with the new Primary Plus Plan
As handset makers continue to push the envelope with cutting-edge technology and high-end hardware, phones like the Apex will attract new smartphone buyers with their lower cost and focus on usability. But the Chicago-based carrier's Android amibiltions don't stop there. Earlier this week it announced that its own version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab
also will arrive on November 19. As most of the larger carriers are doing, U.S. Cellular will offer the Tab for $399 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a two-year contract.
What's more, December will bring U.S. Cellular's fifth Android phone with the LG Optimus U. LG announced yesterday that it has crossed the 1 million devices sold mark in only 40 days, making the Optimus line its most successful smartphone series to date. Look for the Optimus U to closely resemble Sprint's Optimus T
and T-Mobile's Optimus S

If you fancy cutting yourself a steaming-hot slice of Windows Phone 7
pie but don't like touchscreen keyboards, the LG Optimus 7Q
may be of interest, as it packs a physical keyboard.
The 7Q and Dell Venue Pro
are the only Windows Phone 7 smart phones
with Qwerty keyboards to have emerged so far. LG told us there are currently no plans to release the 7Q over here, but we'd be surprised if it didn't eventually make a UK appearance, considering that it was at one time touted as a Windows Phone 7 launch device. LG has understandably put plenty of focus on the Optimus 7
, and may not want to deal all of its cards too soon by releasing the 7Q now.
The 7Q has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 5-megapixel camera, like the Optimus 7, but it fits in a sliding Qwerty keyboard and a smaller, 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen. Like its brother, the 7Q has 512MB of RAM, 16GB of memory, and 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. It also manages to squeeze in an impressive 1,500mAh battery.
Its Qwerty keyboard may make the 7Q a good alternative to a BlackBerry
, and Windows Phone 7 will benefit from built-in Microsoft Office capability. The 7Q will also provide access to some custom apps and a few neat camera features, plus the standard Windows Phone 7 experience with its Zune
If you don't mind going Google, you'll soon have the option of picking up the HTC Desire Z
Android phone, with its Qwerty keyboard. At some time before Christmas, you'll also be able to buy the Samsung Galaxy 551
Qwerty phone, although it's not a high-end handset like the Galaxy S
Does the 7Q tickle your fancy, or are you perfectly happy with virtual typing? Let us know in the comments section below, and click through our photo gallery to see more of the phone.
Engadget – one of the world’s largest tech blogs – can usually be trusted, but according to NowGamer
, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe claims the images of the PlayStation Phone are fake. What do you think?
Back in early August, a rumor started that Sony Ericsson had an Android powered PlayStation phone in the works
. Some people questioned the authenticity of the handset, but now Engadget has posted a series of hard-to-argue-with pictures that show a prototype of the future SE gaming device.
The PlayStation Phone will supposedly be released sometime in the next few months – perhaps even in time for the holidays, but more likely in 2011. The device is said to run Gingerbread (Android 2.3?) and feature a Sony Marketplace, which will let users buy and download games that have been specifically designed for the platform.
The prototype device in the gallery is rocking a second-gen 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor with the same Adreno 205 GPU that can be found on the HTC Desire Z
, Desire HD and myTouch. It sports 512MB of RAM, a 1GB ROM, custom slide-out gaming controls, and the screen is estimated to be somewhere between 3.7 – 4.1 inches. If you wonder what that oval area in the middle of the gaming keys is for, it’s apparently a long touchpad with multitouch capability, which should be able to provide some interesting gameplay options.
The PlayStation Phone along with its custom game market sounds a lot like N-Gage
: Nokia’s mobile gaming debacle. Nokia eventually closed N-Gage and made all its games available in the OVI Store instead, but hopefully Sony Ericsson will be more successful at creating a phone and portable gaming console hybrid. After all, PlayStation is a very strong brand.
I personally wish SE would’ve used a more powerful, dual-core processor such as the Tegra 2 for the device. The Tegra 2 is more suitable for intense graphics, and the rumored PlayStation Phone basically has the same hardware as my HTC Desire
, although with a faster, second-gen Snapdragon chip instead. But at least the specs of the PlayStation Phone blow the current PlayStation Portable
out of the water.
Do you think this device will be a success, or will SE’s PlayStation Phone be for hardcore gamers only? Would you also have preferred more state-of-the-art hardware, or are you pleased with the specs?
