MetroPCS Planning Half a Dozen Android Phones by End of 2011

MetroPCS is looking to break out in 2011 with big Android plans.  The nation’s fifth largest wireless provider expects to make a half dozen Android handsets available by the end of 2011 with their next device coming as soon as February.  Look for the follow-up to the Optimus M to arrive around CES/Mobile World Congress with a slew of announcements in the coming summer months.  

In a hint of things to come, MetroPCS CEO Roger D. Linquist said they forecast prices to start below $150 and go up to the $400-$500 range.  That’s one heck of a starting price for unsubsidized phones if you ask us!

Our question to MetroPCS is this – when are we going to see this Motorola handset?  Are you guys waiting until it’s so outdated that it’s worth less than $150 to begin with?
