Cricket has for a while now, been known as being a low cost carrier which serves approximately 4.6 million customers throughout the US. Coupled with their roaming agreements with other carriers, a lot of customers looking for a cheaper alternative have jumped ship from the big boys to take Cricket up on their offerings.
Looking at the recently leaked 2010 device line up BGR posted, Cricket is looking to take on a bigger market share by offering up BlackBerry services now. First device on their list? The low cost BlackBerry Curve 8530 of course. As the slides indicate, the BlackBerry Curve 8530 will be available from Cricket sometime around August. Could be quite a deal if Cricket has good coverage in your area.
