It's going to be a busy week for 4G fans. Just two days before Verizon launches its own LTE smartphone the HTC Thunderbolt, MetroPCS will beat it to the punch with the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Indulge.
Thanks to a new partnership with the most prolific provider of Wi-Fi hotspots in the United States, and a mobile developer that makes cell phone Wi-Fi as easy as pie, MetroPCS phones running Android can now tap into 500,000 hotspots for free while they're on the go.
Sprint's months-long reign as the only mobile provider in the US with a high-speed wireless network has come to an end. Though not nearly as well-known, MetroPCS has brought the first competition to the new market and is also the first to do it with a new technology.
