Cricket’s finally announced pricing and availability for their newest Android phone – the Sanyo Zio by Kyocera – and has opened up the floodgates for pre-ordering. If you enjoy Cricket’s low-cost, easy-on-the-wallet service, this phone’s price might make you just as happy: it’ll only cost $249.99 off contract.
Let’s be clear: you’re not getting a superphone or anywhere near close for that price, but it is one of the cheapest Android phones we’ve seen released in the states to date and is worth a look or two of Cricket’s other phones aren’t doing it for you. It comes with a 3.5-inch WVGA display, a 600 MHZ Qualcomm processor, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and Android 1.6 with plans to upgrade it to 2.1 or higher later on.
$55 per month for unlimited everything on a phone that can truly take advantage of the web certainly sounds like a steal to me. Head on over to Cricket‘s site now to get started.
