New Cricket AWS phones

Smaller American carrier Cricket has announced its second and third AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) phones, the MyShot and Spex by Samsung. AWS is a frequency band that was opened up to cellular carriers in 2006, and is used by primarily by T-Mobile. The MyShot is a clamshell phone, featuring a 1.3-megapixel camera, with options like a timer and multi-shot capability. Also present is expanded Bluetooth support, which enables sharing photos as well as contacts. Pricing is $150.

The Spex, meanwhile, is extremely basic, using a candybar design and omitting a camera entirely. It does however support Bluetooth for unspecified purposes, most likely hands-free calling. Its price is $120. Both phones should go on sale Friday.
