MetroPCS was kind enough to send over one of their newest offerings for review. The handset is the Sanctioned by TapouT smartphone, which is a special edition Huawei Ascend. As told by the name, this is a TapouT branded phone and that means some goodies are included in the form of exclusive content. The handset features a 3.5 inch HVGA touchscreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera, 256MB internal memory, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 1500 mAh battery and Android 2.2 Froyo. And as for that exclusive content, that comes in the form of 10 virtual training center videos, 12 static wallpapers, 6 live wallpapers, a TapouT application and two TapouT branded battery covers. The MetroPCS Sanctioned smartphone is priced contract-free at $119, which comes after a $30 mail-in-rebate. With that, while we offered a general overview of the phone along with several images, we still have a more in-depth review coming.
