MetroPCS is getting ready to bring another budget-friendly Android device to market. The small regional carrier has announced the CoolPad Quattro to customers for the price of $150. As you can imagine with this kind of price comes extreme limitations when it pertains to features. When looking at the spec sheet, the handset doesn’t tell you mid-range, but it instead screams entry-level.
The CoolPad Quattro has a single-core 1GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, a laughable 133 MB of internal memory expandable up to 32 GB by way of MicroSD, a 4 inch display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, 4G LTE radios, all powered with a two-year old version of Android (Gingerbread 2.3). I guess the only up to date thing about this phone is LTE. MetroPCS at its event in New York City said it would offer a handful of new phones carrying the technology, one which includes the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S III. This plan follows what the company laid out weeks ago in its roadmap.
That being said, the Quattro won’t turn the world upside down, but it’s the perfect device to buy for teenagers headed back to school. You can find the new handset available today in stores or online.
