ZTE Engage headed to Cricket October 2nd

Cricket looks set to offer another affordable Android smartphone for the users of its no-contract service. The device comes from long-time ally ZTE, and it’ll be marketed as the ZTE Engage. The device looks to be fairly decent under the hood as it has a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1.4GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and more.

You’ll have to plop down $250 at the counter but don’t forget that there’s no contract attached to that price — once you get it, it’s paid for. It honestly doesn’t look bad for the price and we’re sure a few of you will at least give it a fair shot. It will be available starting October 2nd.

    And it looks close to stock ICS although I don’t get way MetroPCS can get all the dual core phones and Cricket can’t.

      :O looks like… wth..


    Expandable memory + ICS,4″ display & 1.4 ghz processor sounds decent. I’d wait for a price drop & reports of battery life (1900 mAh/removable?) before diving in.

    Looks OK… But why not buy decent *used* HTC EVO 4G
    LTE on EBay (then have it flashed for Cricket)? There are plenty of them on EBay
    right now for under $300. Far better phone for just a few more bucks…
