While the entire tech world is abuzz with news of the just-announced Kindle Fire, MetroPCS unveiled the latest smartphone to land on its 4G LTE network: the LG Esteem 4G.
The Esteem is sporting some nice mid-range specs, and looks to be the clear winner if you're considering MetroPCS as your carrier-of-choice:
- 4.3-inch 480x800 display
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
- 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP ffc
- 4G LTE connectivity
- Android 2.3
While it's not the most powerful device on the planet, the pricepoint of this device almost makes up for it: $250. No contract. That's the price after a $100 mail-in-rebate, but compared to off-contract pricing of equivalent hardware from a post-paid carrier, that's a steal.
