San Diego and Dallas -- Cricket Communications and Samsung today announced the availability of the new Samsung Messager II®, which comes fully loaded with a slider QWERTY keyboard, email, super fast 3G technology, a 2.0MP camera, camcorder, MP3 player and Cricket’s enhanced user experience, MyHomeScreen. The addition of the Samsung Messager II brings Cricket’s device lineup to a total of four QWERTY devices, three of which feature 3G for faster Mobile Web browsing.
Sleeker, faster and cooler than its best-selling predecessor Messager, the new Messager II offers users real-time connection to friends through revved-up social networking applications and faster internet browsing and downloading music and ringtones.
The Samsung Messager II brings everything to a power texter’s fingertips for personal email, SMS and MMS, and users can customize their own devices with downloadable content and Bluetooth file transfer profile. Cricket MyHomeScreen provides access to news, sports, entertainment and weather at users’ fingertips. Additional features like a 2.0 Megapixel camera, Stereo Bluetooth and Mobile Video will ensure Cricket customers aren’t just talking and texting, but able to share those memorable moments while on the go, too.
“The original Messager was an all-time favorite among Cricket’s customers because it is an easy-to-use device for power texters. Cricket customers tend to be more active texters than the average wireless users; in fact 52% send at least one text per day compared with an industry average of just 33%,” said Matt Stoiber, vice president and general manager of devices for Cricket. “The Messager II builds on that by providing the same easy text features with a sleeker design and 3G speeds.”
The Samsung Messager II will be available beginning Thursday, August 27, for $199.99 at Cricket retail stores, dealers, mycricket.com and by calling 800-922-9169. For more information, please visit www.mycricket.com or www.samsungwireless.com.
