On Samsung’s web site, the R560 Vice, which is for sale in Canada, appears with MetroPCS branding on it. The name “Messager” appears below the phone pictured on the Samsung site. It resembles the Samsung R450 Messager, which was sold by MetroPCS. The phone seen on the Samsung site is a sideways slider that has a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging and regular numeric keypad on the front. The FCC has approved the Samsung R560. The FCC documents note that the R560 has tri-band CDMA radios, which MetroPCS requires, EVDO data capabilities, Bluetooth and a 2 megapixel camera. The “Messager” phone pictured on the Samsung web site is likely the R560 Vice, re-branded for MetroPCS.
