MetroPCS announces the Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G: 3.65-inch screen, LTE and $169 price tag

Perhaps it's because the holiday season is well upon us, but MetroPCS decided now was the perfect time to welcome Samsung's Galaxy Admire 4G to its growing portfolio of wallet-friendly handsets. With today's introduction of the overhauled Admire, the Wireless for All carrier is surely expanding on its LTE-on-a-budget promise, as the device comes priced at a mere $169 (and that's without a beloved two-year commitment, of course). Naturally, this means we can't expect many high-end, drool-inducing specs onboard, but that's not to say some folks out there won't appreciate the 3.65-inch, HVGA display, a 1GHz CPU, 3-megapixel rear shooter and a taste of Google's famed Gingerbread -- after all, there's always that other galactic brethren if you're interested in getting more bang for your buck. The Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G will be up for grabs starting today on the MetroPCS website, while those looking to stop at nearby brick-and-mortar shop are going to have to wait until tomorrow to pick one up.
