Things look to finally start to get interesting with hardware selection on
MetroPCS' LTE network

-- a network that still offers nothing more than the
Samsung Craft

dumbphone to tame those wild 4G speeds several months after the commercial launch. The latest leak here is for a device allegedly called the Forte -- also from Samsung, naturally -- that features a sliding landscape keyboard along with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5 megapixel camera, and Android 2.2 at launch, all specs that would suggest this might be a
Galaxy S

-branded device. What we don't know is whether the Forte is the same as the

that was leaked for MetroPCS a few days ago; Samsung Hub's tipster claims there are two LTE devices in the pipeline here, so they could be different (perhaps one with a keyboard, one without) even though the tops are identical at a glance.
