"MetroPCS Communications, Inc., the nation's leading provider of unlimited, flat-rate, no signed contract wireless communications service, and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile)1, the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the United States2, today launched the Samsung CodeTM (SCH-i220). With MetroPCS' Samsung Code, consumers who are on-the-go will experience the best of productivity and organization, via the Windows Mobile® 6.1 operating system. The Samsung Code is equipped with the entire Microsoft® suite of tools including contacts, calendar, tasks, notes, voice recorder and Windows LiveTM. The optional WizProTM interface allows users to easily customize their home screen and create shortcuts to the most frequently used features on the phone, including missed messages, calendar appointments and more."
Well, at least it's a Windows Mobile device that MetroPCS is carrying. Even if it isn't great looking (in my opinion) and even if it is supplied with yester-year's operating system, at least it's out there. Makes you wonder though eh? If 6.5 is out, why not just go with that? I couldn't own this device knowing there's a later version of an OS, but in reality, many customers purchasing smartphones don't even know what to tell me when I ask which operating system their device has or what version it is. When there's an OS upgrade, do you go for it right away or does it really matter to you? Anyway MetroPCS, I think it's a very small step in the right direction.
