Cricket adopts Nokia 6275i
The fledging Cricket cellular service has adopted the Nokia 6275i, currently the only Nokia phone in its lineup. Cricket is an unusual phone carrier in that it offers flat rates for unlimited local, long-distance and data services; the 6275i is a mid-range phone, its main highlights being a two-megapixel camera with flash, and the ability to play MP3 files or FM radio. The phone is compatible with Cricket's US roaming service, and can be linked to other devices through Bluetooth, USB or an infrared port. The main limitations are digital zoom, and just 21MB of internal storage with no expansions. Cricket is now selling the 6275i for $200.
