The Samsung Admire was announced earlier this month and today a report says that the phone will be available just in time to send your kids back to school. This is not one of those rumors that leave you wondering if the handset will ever come, the report is out and release date is on the horizon. Even though the company has not set a price, or a concrete release date, they did confirm that it will be before school is back in session. The announcement stated, “The Samsung Admire is a perfect choice for first-time smartphone users or for budget-minded students looking for an advanced phone with all the features, apps, entertainment and organizational tools they need to excel.”
Just the “budget-minded students” sounds a bit on the more affordable side which opens up new possibilities for those that would like a Smartphone, but cannot afford the iPhone or other more popular devices. The features for the Samsung Admire include a 3.5 inch screen, smaller than average and a 3.2MP camera. The phone is an Android device and will be available with the Gingerbread, or Android 2.3, operating system installed and access to the Android Marketplace. The phone will support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies, come with a touchscreen display, 3.5mm headphone jack and microSD for more storage options.
Along with the release of the smartphone, the sale that is coming up will include other BOGO deals on handsets. New customers will see buy one get one deals on handsets like the Huawei M835, Samsung Freeform III, Samsung Galaxy Indulge, Kyocera Torino and the LG Optimus M. MetroPCS is a company that gets you phones without a contract and because of that the prices are bit higher up front, so the BOGO deal is a good benefit. Plans from MetroPCS start at $40 for unlimited web, talk and text and that is pretty much the average for non-contract phone plans that are unlimited.
If the sale is not active by the end of the day, it will be soon. The only information that MetroPCS threw out there was that the BOGO deals will be held through the 30th of September. Images of the Samsung Admire are available online and by the looks of them, the phone looks comfortable and modern with a nice big display and function buttons along the bottom under the screen.
