Samsung A870 and Cricket

Cricket today announced that it had begun carrying the Siren, a special version of Samsung's A870 that should help lure subscribers to its unlimited cellphone service. The flip phone spins the basic design with a custom red shell and the ability to download the apps and games from Cricket's network. The phone otherwise targets the relative budget range with Bluetooth, a VGA camera, and the VibeTonz force-feedback technology that can synchronize vibrations to a ringtone's beat.

The Siren should be available now through Cricket's retail shops and should be coming soon to its online page. No prices were mentioned but should include a set cost above and beyond the $40 minimum plan.
