Cricket adds r211 to range

Wireless provider Cricket on Thursday announced that the Samsung SCH-r211 handset is now shipping. The candybar is a basic phone with support for the carrier's Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) network, with mobile web access and support for downloadable content such as ringtones, wallpapers and access to Cricket Games and Apps. The phone is also capable of sending and receiving text messages.

The r211 bears a striking resemblance to the Samsung Spex phone introduced on the carrier's network nearly one year ago, with similar functionality. The r211 is available at Cricket stores now, priced at nearly $90.
