Alcatel ONE TOUCH Fierce and Evolve launched with T-Mobile back in October, and as of today, this pair of handsets has arrived with another US carrier. This latest is MetroPCS and they will have both models priced below what we saw with T-Mobile. Perhaps more important for some, they will both be available contract free and ready for use with the MetroPCS plans which begin at $40 per month.

Kyocera has handsets that aren't waterproof, however it seems most of what we have been seeing lately are models that can handle being submerged in water. We have reviewed a few here, and we got a first look at the Hydro EDGE and Hydro XTRM way back in May. At the time Kyocera was showing the handset and while they shared details on the specs, there wasn't much in the way of specific release dates. Well, it looks like MetroPCS has launched Hydro XTRM.
T-Mobile is getting ready to push MetroPCS into 15 additional markets. This latest expansion will be taking place later in November. Specifically, the expansion is set to begin on November 21.

Samsung announced the Galaxy Mega 6.3.

FCC filing surfaced back in late-March that detailed a MetroPCS compatible Samsung GALAXY S 4. That filing had shown the handset as being the SCH-R970 and with support for LTE. The key with that, MetroPCS had been quite and hadn't said anything in terms of when the handset could be expected to arrive in the available device lineup. Well, flash forward till today and it looks like they have since come forward.
