MetroPCS gets touch-screen phone

The new Samsung Finesse for MetroPCS offers a touch screen and mid-range multimedia features.


Just a few weeks after it introduced its first smartphone, the RIM BlackBerry Curve, MetroPCS went even more high-end (relatively speaking) by adding its first touch-screen device, the Samsung Finesse, aka the SCH-r810 resembles Alltel's Samsung Delve. It offers a large, 262,000-color display with a virtual QWERTY keyboard and numeric dialpad. Just one physical control below the display completes the Finesse's front face.

Features include a 2-megapixel camera, speakerphone, personal organizer, messaging and e-mail, microSD card slot, Bluetooth, GPS, music player, full HTML browser, speakerphone, and support for 3G data networks. The Finesse is $350; MetroPCS does not require contracts.
