Samsung shares a Byline with MetroPCS

The Samsung Byline is a basic push-to-talk phone for Metro PCS.

The Byline is black and red all over. Samsung

Just a week after it launched the ZTE C78 , MetroPCS added another new phone to its lineup when it unveiled the Samsung Byline. Also called the SCH-r310, the Byline has a minimalist flip phone with clean lines and a shiny red color.

Features are basic but functional. You'll find text and multimedia messaging, Bluetooth, support for the carrier's ChatLink push-to-talk service, a WAP Web browser, voice recognition, an airplane mode, organizer features, and a speakerphone. We don't know a price yet, but we'll pass on when we do.
