Samsung SCH-R900

The FCC has approved the Samsung SCH-R900, and it’s a pretty deal seeing how it’s the first CDMA/LTE handset in the U.S. The phone’s specs include a 1700/1900 MHz LTE radio, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, and should be available from MetroPCS sometime later this year. Speaking of 4G — trials of Verizon’s 4G network are going on in Boston and Seattle right now, and the company hopes to have their 4G network in 25 to 30 markets by the end of 2010. The R900 was announced back in March at CTIA by pre-paid carrier MetroPCS, and the cost-conscious carrier stated it would have the device out before the end of the year.
