Well ofcorse I'm going to cover the rumors first.

This is pure speculation and might not even be true at all.
What I have heard and said its confirmed is the next blackberry launch is going to come from metro pcs with Blackberry 7.0 software. I highly doubt this is true but I have heared it from a few people.

Now facts.
Coming soon Metro Pcs will launch a WI-FI tethering option which will probably be $5.00 USD.

Metro Pcs will be launching another 4G phone will will more than likely be a samsung or LG device. Expect it to be approximately $399.99.

I know its not much but at least something better than nothing.
