MetroPCS and ZTE announce Score M, obviously not aiming for powerhouse

ZTE and MetroPCS are poised to launch the ZTE Score M. The device will be the regional carrier’s first ZTE Android device, and will come with some low-end specs that include Gingerbread, a 3.2MP rear camera, 3.5-inch HVGA TFT screen, 600 MHz processor, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD expansion up to 32GB, Bluetooth 2.1, and WiFi b/g. Lixin Cheng, the CEO of ZTE USA, had this to say about the release:

There is an increasing number of consumers that see how the functionality of a smartphone will enhance their lives, but still may not be prepared to commit fully to a costly device. Working with MetroPCS to offer these customers the ZTE Score M will allow them to have the smartphone experience at an incredible value.”

So the Score M isn’t going to blow anyone away, but at $49 after a mail-in rebate, it’s easy to see that they’re not aiming for the wealthier MetroPCS customers. So, is anyone on MetroPCS thinking about grabbing this budget-friendly Android device? Drop a comment below!

    Hopefully! I have the LG Optimus M and I am desperate for a Gingerbread device! And this device seems to be the one!
