Samsung Forte

Samsung appears close to launching another 4G LTE phone, this time on the MetroPCS network. The phone, dubbed the Forte, is a horizontal-QWERTY slider that will come with Android 2.2 (Froyo). The Forte is also expected to have a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5MP camera and a microSD slot. 

MetroPCS customers can rejoice in the fact that more LTE devices are coming their way. The more options the better and the Forte looks to be a solid choice. [Samsung Hub

Too bad MetroPCS blocks Skype and Netflix.

PhiUnion says:

This is really interesting. I may actually look into switching to MetroPCS since they finally have a decent phone. I imagine I'll still end up at Verizon with a Thunderbolt though :p

^ Of course, spam filter doesn't catch that, but catches everyone's legitimate comments. AC, can we please go back to just weeding through the one or two comments per post like this? Wasn't really a big deal; not sure why it was changed to this terribly inacurrate system we have now.

Metro just dropped the price of the Craft by $50. Probably using that price price drop to justify the higher price of the phones to come. Rumors can come true. ;)
