Pricing, release date set for Samsung Code on MetroPCS

We first heard about the Samsung Code in August, and over a month and a half later finally have some further information. According to PhoneNews.com, the device will hit MetroPCS on October 20 for $299.99, minus a $50 mail-in rebate. The $250 price tag is still a bit expensive, but it certainly represents a subsidy of some kind. As PhoneNews’s Humberto Saabedra notes, the cost is $235 per unit, so the subsidy certainly goes beyond the mail-in rebate. As a refresher, it’s a basic QWERTY model, featuring a 2.0 megapixel camera, microSD expansion, and Bluetooth. As pictured, it should run Windows Mobile.
