Cricket TXTM8 3G tries, fails to include entire alphabet in name

Chris Ziegler

It may not be quite as adorable as its 3G-less predecessor, but Cricket's TXTM8 3G is likely to find an audience just the same -- people love the portrait QWERTY form factor, after all. The phone features a 2.2-inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, microSD slot, stereo Bluetooth, web browser, and -- as the name implies -- support for EV-DO Rev. 0 data. Interested? It's available starting today for $99.99 contract-free, though we'll admit: walking into a Cricket store and trying to buy this while resisting the warm glow of a $129.99 Android phone mere steps away could be very difficult indeed.
