Cricket Launches First Android Smartphone Sanyo Zio by Kyocera
Aug 26, 2010 2:12 PM –
Cricket Wireless just launched its first Android based smartphone called Sanyo Zio by Kyocera with a $55 unlimited voice and data plan.
The entry level Android phone is sleek and stylish design. Features Android 1.6 OS, 600MHz processor, 512MB of embedded memory, MicroSD slot supporting 32GB cards, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5” WVGA touch-screen, WiFi capability, 3G Real Web Browsing, 3.2 megapixel camera/camcorder, MP3 player/microSD slot, virtual QWERTY keyboard, and of course access to thousands of Android Apps (find best Android apps on AndroidTapp.com)!
When I saw the phone back in February at CTIA 2010 in Vegas, my own personal opinion of the phone was, “beautiful display but poor touchscreen response and older version of Android software” see in the video below. It would be interesting to see how the response issues were corrected now that the phone has officially launched.
