The Samsung Indulge has already launched on MetroPCS, but now it is coming to Cricket. This will be Cricket’s fourth Android smartphone, but it will be the only one with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
It comes with a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, a 3.5-inch (480 X 320) display, 3MP camera, 1500 mAh battery, and Android 2.2 Froyo. At $330 off contract, this seems like a pretty good deal.
Cricket, making an appearance at CTIA this year, announced a couple of devices they have in the works to be released “very soon” (Q2). The company introduced two handsets that look to be promising in the up and coming year for the company. First up to bat, the Huawei Ascend 2, a pretty descent successor to the original Ascend which we saw released last year. The device will tout an HVGA screen (same as the original Ascend) however, the company is looking to keep the price point along the same lines as the original model, coming in at $150.00. In addition, the device will sport an updated camera coming in at 5MP from the previous 3.2MP along with an 800 MHz CPU.
Next on the smartphone arsenal list is the Samsung Indulge, running on Cricket’s standard 3G bands, as the company currently does not have an LTE network. The Indulge also sports an HVGA screen and comes with a bit of a hefty price tag coming in at around $350 for a new 2 yr agreement. Keep heading back to Talk Android as we continue to dig for more info on release dates and confirmed official pricing for these handsets. And as always, let us know what you think of them in the comments below.
