Cricket outs A100 candybar

Wireless provider Cricket on Wednesday announced the immediate release of its A100 handset to customers in its greater Chicago market and said the handset will soon be available to Cricket customers in all of the provider's markets. In addition to tri-band CDMA, the 1,700MHz AWS frequency-compatible handset features a 1.8-inch LCD display with 128x160 resolution.

The A100 has the ability to dial numbers via speech recognition, has a 2.5mm headset jack and a speakerphone. Integrated memory is rated at 31MB. Users can access the Internet and play games and download applications via the handset, as well as send and receive SMS messages. Hearing Aid compatibility is also part of the feature-set.

The A100 is currently available in Cricket's Chicago-area dealers and on the company's website, priced at nearly $90, though online buyers get an instant $40 rebate.
