Indulge is the first commercially available 4G LTE smartphone in the US

MetroPCS is a carrier that offers coverage around the country and doesn’t require a contract for the user. The downside is that you generally have to pay more for the phone than you would with a contract elsewhere.

MetroPCS has announced that it has the world's first commercially available 4G LTE Android smartphone called the Galaxy Indulge from Samsung. The smartphone will work on the MetroPCS $50 and $60 4G LTE data plans. Those plans include unlimited talk, text, and LTE web surfing in the price.

“Our commitment to offering premium, feature-rich smartphones was once again fulfilled today with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Indulge, which will allow consumers to experience the vast benefits of both MetroPCS’ 4GLTE services and the Android operating system,” said Roger D. Linquist, president, CEO and chairman of MetroPCS. “Mobile consumers no longer have to choose between low cost service and high-end Android handsets. Instead, they can truly have it all by being able to select from a full spectrum of feature and smartphones paired with 4GLTE services at an unmatched value.”

The Indulge runs Android 2.2 Froyo and has applications to allow the user to watch multimedia from popular shows using MetroStudio. The smartphone can access the Android Market for apps and other software.

The Indulge has a 3MP camera, Bluetooth, and expandable storage via a microSD card slot. The device comes with a 4GB microSD card that is loaded with the Ironman 2. The phone will hit stores this week for $399 plus tax.

“The Galaxy Indulge integrates two of Samsung’s core product investments; the Android platform and bringing powerful and intuitive 4G-enabled devices to the U.S. market,” said Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Mobile. “The Galaxy Indulge is loaded with the speed of the Android OS, true mobile broadband connectivity and a 1GHz processor with rich multimedia features for premium movie and TV content.”
