Metro PCS, one of the world's leading communications service providers, has been working doubly hard to roll out fresh technological devices that would beef up the brand's reputation in the industry. Last September 2010, they became the first firm to introduce an LTE Network in North America. However, the firm lacked the tools needed to showcase what this technology is capable of doing and so gained little buzz in the market. In November though, they followed it up with a release of the LG Optimus M, which is their first ever Android smartphone device. To prove their dedication to expand their brand, a new Samsung R910 Metro PCS is set to unveil soon.

There were several images of the R910 that was released on the internet. When Samsung officially announced the R910 soon after those leaked images came out, they finally came forward with what is going to be the first Android powered LTE device on the market. The release date for this device remains to be speculated although many industry analysts believe that spring or the first quarter of 2011 might be the ideal time for its release. This won't be the first smartphone from Samsung that would take advantage of the LTE network from Metro PCS since SCH-R900 from Samsung is the one to earn that recognition when it released last year.

The specifications for the Samsung R910 Metro PCS are limited at this point. However, there is only little technical information available to give consumers a slight hint on what to expect with this new device. It will run on the TouchWiz user interface, which is the same kind of interface used with other Android smartphones from Samsung. This LTE capable Android smartphone is equipped with 1GHz Hummingbird processor, Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, along with on-board CDMA and LTE radio.

This device is equipped with a sliding QWERTY keyboard and boasts off a 3.5-inch touch screen display with multi-touch functionality. As with most modern cell phone units today, the Samsung R910 is equipped with a camera that comes with 5-megapixel resolution and features an advanced auto focus system. It is also integrated with a good mix of standard and innovative features including Bluetooth 3.0, computer & OTA synchronization, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, HTML browser support, GPS navigation, compass, MP3 & polyphonic ring tones, and a voice recording function. However, its most distinctive feature is the fact that this smartphone features an expandable memory courtesy of the micro SD or SDHC card slot.

The pricing information for Samsung R910 Metro PCS is still unknown as of now. However, estimates suggest that it will start at $329 and could go up to $399 for no contract. Most consumers would be willing to shell out $500 to $600 for an Android smartphone so this could prove to be a bargain.

The new Samsung R910 Metro PCS is still shrouded with mystery, for the most part. No further details have been revealed yet and the prices are mere estimates at this point. However, there is one thing that's sure about this phone - it's going to be a great addition to the long list of smart phones.
