Samsung has recently announced the Samsung Messager aka SCH-r450 for MetroPCS. According to the official release and common sense I might add, the full slide-out QWERTY-keyboard equipped device is “a great fit for people who love text messaging.”
Other specs include a 1.3 megapixel camera, 2.1-inch 176X220 pixels screen, stereo Bluetooth support, speakerphone, “Advanced Voice Recognition,” and a microSD memory expansion slot. As for the pre-installed apps, aside from the standard mobile apps (calculator, calendar, contacts, etc), the Messager comes pre-loaded with music player, IM and email client. Size wise, it measures 4.4×2.0x0.7 inches and you can get more information from MetroPCS’ website.
