Currently some Best Buy outlets offer devices and services from Cricket, but with this new venture, Cricket is going to capitalize on the traffic that Best Buy stores have to offer on a larger scale. With their roll out nationwide, we’ll see new devices like the Samsung Vitality and ZTE Score making their appearance.
With the ZTE Score, it’s a $129.99 Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone that features a 3.5” HVGA display, 600MHz processor, 3.2-megapixel camera, video capture, and Wi-Fi. Later on in the year, they’ll also launch the $99.99 ZTE Chorus, which will offer the lovable music streaming Muve Music service.
Also, future plans will see their operations expanding to other major retailers like Walmart, Dollar General, and the HSN TV shopping network. Essentially, Cricket’s plans to have its presence in over 11,500 stores by the time they’re complete with everything.
