MetroPCS announced today the availability of the Coolpad Quattro 4G – the first phone with Coolpad Americas as a MetroPCS partner. The device is being described by MetroPCS as a “new, affordable” device for “cost-conscious consumers.” The phone’s specs won’t be setting any records, however that’s obviously not the intent here. The Quattro 4G will run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), sport a modest 4-inch display, a 1GHz processor, and a rear 3.2 megapixel camera coupled with a VGA front-facing camera.
The phone will run $149, while the 4G LTE plans begin at $40 a month. Also for a limited time, MetroPCS is also is offering a $50 mail-in rebate on the second of any two 4G smartphones purchased. So you could effectively buy two Quattros for $248 after the rebate, which is not too shabby of a deal.
