MetroPCS is now offering the Hauwei Ideos, a very basic Android smartphone for $120 (at Best Buy). That's a deal that's hard to beat.
|A capable if somewhat limited smartphone. But for $120 unsubsidized, who cares?|
While the Ideos is only a mid-range smartphone, it's perfectly functional and includes access to the full Android market. That $120 purchase price is contract free as well. It's hard for me to see how such enormous price differentials sustain themselves in the market, but I don't think they can last as MetroPCS reaches national coverage.
