Cricket Wireless has never been at the top of the pack as far as Android devices go. Their Kyocera Sanyo Zio and Huawei Ascend failed to impress many. But it looks like they’re stepping up their game a bit with the announcement of the Samsung Indulge. Let’s see what the Indulge brings to the table:
- 1GHz processor
- Froyo (Android 2.2)
- 3.5-inch display
- sliding QWERTY keyboard
- TouchWiz 3.0
- 3MP camera
- 1500mAh battery
- MicroSD card slot
Now, the specs aren’t that mind-blowing, especially considering the newer Android devices out there. But it’s nice to see Cricket actually trying to keep up in the Android race. They’re almost a year behind, but at least they’re launching a phone with a decent processor and Froyo.
The Indulge can be yours today for the hefty price of $329.99. No word on if this price will go down for new customers or upgradeable contracts, but we’ll keep digging. So, who’s anxious to pick one of these up? Anyone think Cricket should stop trying with Android? Leave a comment below or on our Facebook Wall!
Cricket’s Droid offerings to date are ok – just that – OK. They are great for people like me that use it for the basic stuff and don’t expect a whole lot. I have an Ascend and I’m disappointed in the lack of upgrade to Froyo so far but the call quality/service has been ok (this doesn’t include customer service in India). Once the price on the Indulge drops I’ll likely upgrade mostly to get Froyo (I want voice dialing from my bluetooth) and because I miss a real keyboard.
for $55 a month and all inclusive…? no overages to worry about or data used…?and with a life outside of a handset…i will stick with my ZIO. people question it, like cricket, and call it cheap. may not have all the features their iphone’s and t-bolts etc have, but nor am i the one having calls dropped or dropping what im doing because i have to spin and twirl around to pick up “my 4G.” waiting out a few “buffering” is better than searching for signal and connecting all over again. a “year behind others and only 3G” is a small price to pay for minimal headaches. cricket is good for it’s no bs this is what you will get this is what it will cost you. 8 yr customer and not going anywhere.
