MetroPCS today announced the Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G, a new Android smartphone that supports MetroPCS's Long Term Evolution 4G network. The Attain 4G runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 3.5-inch display, and is powered by a 1GHz processor. The Attain 4G has a 3.2-megapixel main camera with LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera with Google Talk video chat software. The Attain 4G will cost $199.99 after $50 rebate, and will be available from MetroPCS stores and MetroPCS's web site in the next few weeks. Voice, messaging, and data plans start at $50 per month.
Samsung brings a mid-range Galaxy-class device to MetroPCS's network in the Attain 4G. This simpler smartphone packs some surprises, along with some disappointments.
The Galaxy Attain is the result of trying to make a 4G LTE phone really affordable, for a prepaid carrier like MetroPCS. It's a cute little phone, with that blazing fast LTE inside.
