LG Optimus M coming to MetroPCS this week for $230 contract-free

Chris Ziegler

Well, LG, well played: what Samsung managed to do with the Galaxy S series, you've now basically managed to do with your Optimus One. This time around, it's MetroPCS taking the bait with the Android 2.2-powered Optimus M, a refreshingly differently-styled take on the formula with essentially the same specs underneath: 3.2-inch HVGA display, 3.2 megapixel camera, and so on. Notably, this becomes the very first Android phone to launch on MetroPCS -- the first of many, we suspect -- for $229 with a $50 service plan that includes unlimited talk, text, and web without a contract. Look for it to launch this Wednesday, November 24th.
