Samsung Caliber coming to MetroPCS, TouchWiz in tow

Chris Ziegler

It's not every day that a carrier exclusively offering contract-free service spits out a full touchscreen device, so the freshly-announced Caliber from Samsung becomes a pretty interesting proposition for MetroPCS customers. Although it lacks EV-DO Rev. A, it still makes do with Rev. 0 and features a 3.2-inch touchscreen, full HTML browsing, microSD expansion up to 16GB, and 3 megapixel camera all stuffed into a 2.2 x 4.5 x 0.47-inch package (interestingly, those dimensions are quoted with the "standard battery," so there might be an extended battery in the pipe that produces a hump on the back of the phone). It's available right now for $249.
