It's not all that exciting, but the Samsung Stunt is performing tricks at Cricket retail outlets across the United States. Complete with a color screen and a slim size, it's a good entry-level device for Mom or the casual talker. Most importantly, the device packs Bluetooth functionality at a low price ("to our most affordable tier of devices," according to Cricket) - a useful feature, given the restrictions in many states across the US.
The Samsung Stunt can be had for $99.99 (sans contract) at Cricket retail stores, online at mycricket.com, and via telesales at 800-922-9169. Check out the press release below for more information!
