Source: Metro PCS Getting Android 2.1 Motorola Device

I’ll be completely upfront with you guys on this one.  The details are somewhat limited but I trust the source.  He’s been pretty reliable so far in regards to some past leaks and I see no reason to refute this latest rumor.  So with all that out of the way, here’s what I have for you guys.  Metro PCS, the nation’s fifth largest wireless provider (US), is getting an Android-based Motorola phone.

Here’s what my guy has to say about the phone – It is running MOTOBLUR with Android 2.1 and has a sliding QWERTY keyboard.  The processor is said to be 600MHz and there’s a 3-megapixel camera on it.  Not much, I know but it doesn’t sound like any other Android phone we’ve seen so far.  Perhaps a new form factor and/or a Metro PCS exclusive?

The tipster is going to see what else he can glean for us and of course I’ll be sure to pass along anything else I can get my hands on.

    This Phone sounds Great and Knowing its coming out on metro pcs makes me feel confident I’m going to Be ABLE to get one! My Parents say any phone as long as it’s from Metro PCS. They should ADD a capture video mode and more personally add ons and it’ll be perfect! I NEED to know when it’s coming out so I don’t get a new phone too soon! but there are other selections as good as this one mabi BETTER! well Just have to wait for now!
