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.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. 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.

  2. wait a sec… *looks at image closley*
    that’s gingerbread! look at the status bar. also, only GB and older had the icon text in a shadow lik this

    1. :O looks like… wth..

  3. 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.

  4. Best of all you can put even mzore people out of work around the democratic world and add to the communist china takeover

  5. 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…
