RAZR2 and r500 at Cricket

Cell provider Cricket concluded the week before Christmas with the introduction of two high-profile phones to its lineup. The appearance of the RAZR 2 V9m marks the first appearance of the handset outside of the top five carriers and is set to take advantage of the carrier's unlimited phone, messaging, and data plans; like the reference versions available at Alltel, Sprint, and Verizon, the Cricket version has a 2-megapixel camera usable for media messaging and a 3G-level EVDO connection for web browsing. The handset continues to Bluetooth with stereo audio support and a microSD slot, and should be available now for $400 without a contract.

Mid-range users can turn to the Samsung r500, Cricket says: equivalent to the Alltel Hue, the design revolves around its replaceable, stripe-like color faceplate and brings the same 1.3-megapixel camera, EVDO, microSD slot and stereo Bluetooth as the earlier clamshell. The provider will carry the r500 on Christmas Eve for $200 contract-free.
