This new phone has some pretty impressive features for not being in the “top four” providers.

  • 3.2 megapixel camera
  • 512MB internal memory
  • Up to 6 hour talk time
  • Up to 432 hour Standby time
  • Up to 4.5 hours video playback time

Since the ZIO is not yet released, there isn’t a whole lot of information available, but from Cricket’s website, you can subscribe for more info, and when it’s released, you’ll know about it first.  There’s even a short video explaining why the Zio is the right phone for you.
