MetroPCS is adding the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G to its stable of Android phones. The Lightray 4G, which is a rebranded Samsung Droid Charge, is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone with a 1 GHz processor. The device has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and LTE connectivity.
The Galaxy S Lightray 4G will also be the first smartphone released in the U.S. to support Dyle mobile TV, a service that broadcasts live television to mobile devices. Dyle supports major broadcasters like ABC and CBS, but the service is available only in select areas. Customers who sign-up for a MetroPCS 4G LTE service plan will be able to watch Dyle for free.
The Galaxy S Lightray is available now online and in MetroPCS stores at a cost of $459. MetroPCS LTE connectivity is not available in all areas, so consult the coverage map to see if your area is covered.source: MetroPCS
