Latest low-end device hits the right price point with modern features
Along with announcements of new device payment plans and updates to Muve Music, Cricket announced that it will be carrying a new low-end device, the Samsung Galaxy Discover. The Galaxy Discover ticks some boxes but isn't going to wow anyone -- with a 3.5-inch display, 3MP camera and few extra features, it's clearly meant for the first-time smart phone buyer. It still has access to Google Play, along with Cricket's Muve Music service and most modern features.
The Galaxy Discover is available starting July 21st for $129.99 on Cricket's unlimited plans, which start with talk, text and 1GB of high speed data for $50 per month.
