Samsung Admire takes Android 2.3 to MetroPCS, Cellular South

Samsung Admire official for MetroPCS

MetroPCS and Cellular South have confirmed their first Android 2.3 phones. Samsung's Admire tackles the entry level with a 3.5-inch, 320x480 touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel rear camera. Although budget, it's one of Samsungs most straightforward phones and uses the stock Google interface instead of its own TouchWiz.

The design doesn't have significant app customization if any from the carriers and will come in gray or red.

Neither carrier has detailed pricing or ship dates other than to say the hardware would be coming soon. Both are counting on their cheaper smartphone plans as a way of luring users in, particularly students. MetroPCS currently starts off with a $40 all-unlimited plan and its met by a $50 Cellular South plan that has 500 minutes but is otherwise uncapped.
