MetroPCS has recently released the Kyocera Presto and the LG Beacon, both of which are relatively basic phones for the prepaid carrier.
The Kyocera Presto is a candy bar handset with bare-bones features that include a camera, Bluetooth, a speakerphone, and text and multimedia messaging. The LG Beacon, on the other hand, is somewhat based on the LG Cosmos Touch. It has a 2.8-inch touch screen, a sliding keyboard, a 1.3-megapixel camera, an MP3 player, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, and more.
The Kyocera Presto retails $29, while the LG Beacon will set you back $69 after the usual rebates. Both phones are available without a contract.
