Cricket adds LG Helix to handset lineup

It seems that regional carriers MetroPCS and Cricket wireless are always adding new handsets. Some of them are good, but many of them are low- and mid-range devices. That’s because the companies don’t subsidize their phones like contract carriers, putting the cost burden on the consumer. Since low-end handsets are cheaper, it makes sense to load up on them — they’re more affordable to the consumer. We learned yesterday that Cricket has launched the LG Helix, a clamshell phone that features a 1.3 megapixal camera and Bluetooth. It also contains a feature called Voice Clairty, which helps when talking in a noisy area. It’s $139.99, and it’s available now at Cricket’s website.]]>
