While there are all those fancy smartphones and mobile devices strutting their stuff out there in the market, here is one nice little unassuming, entry-level and much less expensive Android handheld from MetroPCS. So, while we continue to drool at the several HTCs and Samsungs, we are rather taken aback by this tiny beauty out here, which is bound to be much appreciated by those looking around for Android smartphones that will not burn a huge hole in their pocket. We are referring to the LG Optimus M+, which had been announced by MetroPCS last month.
We were really looking forward to seeing this phone in the market, knowing well how popular this is probably going to get among the masses. After all, the Android OS is one of the more preferred mobile platforms today.
For those who are yet uninitiated, the LG Optimus M+ comes with a 3.5-inch display screen, 5MP camera with LED Flash, 2.8GB internal storage and microSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB. There is no front-facing camera on this phone, unlike most of the smartphones today. Also, you may not be able to avail an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Optimus M+ is powered by LG’s own customized Android 2.3 Gingerbread, running an 800MHz processor. This phone, though one of the most basic Android devices in the market, also offers access to Rhapsody Unlimited via Metro PCS. This additional service will cost you $60 a month for unlimited talk, text and data plan.
As for the phone itself, you can get your hands on the MetroPCS LG Optimus M+ for a mere $129, without the need for a contract. Pretty cool, huh? So, how many of you are going to be interested in this one?
