Cricket Wireless is a pre-paid carrier that has been offering more and more Android smartphones to its users. The latest addition to the company's Android line is the Samsung Vitality smartphone. The smartphone also gets the new Cricket Muve Music service. The company will offer more handsets in the future that support the Muve Music service. The Vitality isn’t a high-end Mobile phone, but it will make a nice choice for Android fans looking for no contract.
The Vitality has the ability to surf the internet at 3G speeds. The screen is a 3.5-inch HVGA touch unit that should be good for streaming media and more. The camera on the back of the device is a 3.2MP unit and it can record video as well. The CPU is an 800MHz unit and it runs Android 2.3. Other features include stereo Bluetooth tech, voice search, email capability, and access to the Android Market. The smartphone has a retail price of $219.99, but is being offered for $199.99 with a $20 instant rebate.
Cricket says that the Muve Music service is the first unlimited music service to be included as part of a wireless plan. The Muve Music service will be available next week at company owned Cricket stores and in some retail partner stores. The rate plan with unlimited music, voice, data, and text will be $65 monthly on the Vitality.
