Moto QA4 Evoke at Cricket
Cricket gained one of its highest-end phones yet today with the addition of the Motorola QA4 Evoke to its roster. It becomes the unlimited-only carrier's first capacitive touchscreen phone and, like the stock model, has a gesture-driven interface that lets users swipe between home screens that control apps, calling, music and other features. A 2-megapixel camera, GPS and a microSDHC slot round out the device.
As it doesn't subsidize any of its phone prices, Cricket is selling the Evoke for $300 at regular retail prices compared to $100 at Alltel. Those who pre-order the phone online can drop the price to $280. A specific in-store retail date isn't available.
