Cricket is set to announce and release a new Android-powered handset pretty soon. The Samsung Vitality, for that’s the phone we’re talking about, will come with support for Cricket’s Muve Music unlimited music service. Up until now, the only phone to give you unlimited access to millions of tracks is the Samsung Suede, which is a featurephone. So this is good news for music lovers who like smartphones and have Cricket as their carrier of choice (or are looking to switch).
Aside from the music service though, the Vitality will be almost identical to the Samsung Admire recently launched by MetroPCS. The Samsung Vitality will have a 3.5-inch HVGA (320×480) touchscreen, an 800 MHz processor, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The Samsung Vitality will apparently run stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so no UI overlays or ‘enhancements’ to be seen anywhere.
Unfortunately at this point details about this phone’s pricing or a clear release date aren’t available. However, we’ll let you know as soon as we find out anything new. What we do know is that the price plan which will accompany the Vitality is rumored to cost $65 per month. For that amount of cash, you’ll receive unlimited song downloads, ringtones, and ringback tones alongside what we’re guessing will be an unlimited communications plan.
