MetroPCS this morning announced the Coolpad Quattro 4G, a lower end Android handset with LTE capabilities.
While a 1GHz handset running Android 2.3 may sound like an abomination in the dawning age of Jelly Bean, something has to be said to the idea that LTE is pretty much available to consumers of all budgets now. The Coolpad Quattro 4G sells for $149 plus tax, and can take advantage of LTE plans starting at $40 a month with no annual contract.
True, the device is not a high-end phone by any stretch of the imagination, but when handsets such as this are hitting the market, you know that LTE has truly arrived. Now … when do we start down the path to 5G?
