The name Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G has no typo in it, although one would expect Neo to appear suddenly and pummel Agent Typo into oblivion if this were the perfect world. One of the smaller carriers Stateside, US Cellular, has just announced the availability of the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G which will arrive in brick-and-mortar stores later this Friday. Sporting a QWERTY keyboard for easy and fast typing, the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G will run on the 4G LTE network, and it will cost you a rather affordable $179 after a $100 mail-in rebate, while those living in areas where 4G LTE service is available, it is even cheaper at $129 after a $100 mail-in rebate. Now this is an interesting way to achieve a higher level of adoption among users, I guess.

Features of the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G include the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a front-facing camera, a 4″ touchscreen display, Google Play access, a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with camcorder capability. Now that the name Galaxy Metrix has arrived in the market, we look forward to the Galaxy Legend and Galaxy Velvet devices which were registered at the same time as the Galaxy Metrix back in April. Give the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G a miss if you are part of the 46.8% who feel that you do not need 4G connectivity in your life. [Press Release]
