Nov 21, 2011, 8:22 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Cricket Wireless today announced that its phones and services can now be ordered from Amazon.com. Cricket said that the Samsung Vitality and the ZTE Score Android phones will be available first, both of which are compatible with its Muve Music plans. The Huawei Pillar feature phone can also be ordered from Amazon starting today. Cricket will eventually sell most of its devices through Amazon.com, and the ZTE Chorus, Kyocera Domino, and the Samsung Chrono will be available in the coming weeks. Cricket's new availability through Amazon gives it nationwide reach.
When is Android not Android? When it's the ZTE Chorus for Cricket.
The Score for Cricket is ZTE's first smartphone for the US. If the primary factor in your purchasing decision is price, the Score is hard to beat, coming in at only $150 full retail price, and $90 after instant discount.
The Huawei Pinnacle for MetroPCS (very similar to the Pillar for Cricket) is a small, basic CDMA messaging phone, in the style of a BlackBerry. Check out our hands-on impressions.
