A new device launch never fails to warm the cockles of our hearts, and today's treat comes in the form of the Sanyo Zio
by Kyocera on Cricket. We'd heard
earlier this year that Cricket was prepping to launch this set in July for 'round about $300 -- and yes they missed that date but they've exchanged tardiness for better pricing, gotta love 'em, right? The Zio ships with a 1GB microSD, features a 3.4-inch touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel cam, WiFi, Bluetooth, and all that running in the land of Android 1.6. Pricing is set at $249 with a $20 online rebate thrown in and of course a bit of fine print requiring you grab the $55 a month Android plan. Sadly, the Zio is listed as backordered on the site so getting one today might be a stretch, but estimated ship date is August 26th, and what's five days between you and your new cell pal? We had a chance to play with the Zio
back in March and came away feeling a little underwhelmed, so why not give it a quick read before you dive in? Follow the read link to see the rest of the goodies.
