It has a 2.8-inch resistive display with 240 x 320 pixels with haptic feedback. It features a 1.3 megapixel camera with editing tools, music player, 3.5mm headset jack, stereo Bluetooth, and support for microSD cards up to 16GB. The Rio will offer Cricket users threaded SMS messaging, a WAP 2.0 browser and access to BREW-based content. It has tri-band CDMA 1x cellular radios and aGPS for location services. Cricket hasn't announced pricing nor availability of the Rio yet.

Why

Why does anyone buy a touch screen phone like this? First off, resistive touch stinks. Period.

Second off, touch only works on good size displays. Anything smaller than an iPhone's is too small for an on-screen keyboard. QVGA doesn't cut it.

Third, with the crappy screen resolution, what the hell good does wasting all of it on the necessary on-screen commands do? If it had a D-Pad and a keyboard it'd be that much better.
Cricket customers have very, very low standards.

Wow great

This is very awesome handset with wonderful features we can enjoy this gadget at very economical price. I think this handset will create lot of competition with other brands and also give tough time to others. I think this is very good handset for common user.

Of course it's affordable!!! It has no features!!!!

August of 2010 I betcha this will be the only touchscreen phone on the market with a resistive touchscreen.

Cricket customers have such low standards they'll probably be excited about this Laughing

Needs Improvement.

For starters if anyone were to purchase this phone the company would have alot of unhappy customers. The pixel/resolution is not up to par and the display screen is too small, I believe this phone would have alot of problems and result in a decrease in sales do to returns/exchanges. Definitely needs impovement.
